Diabetic Foot Ulcers initially occur due to trauma or pressure loading [force applied to the skin] in persons who already have complications of diabetes in their legs. Persons with diabetes may have neuropathy (problems with nerve function in their feet) and a condition called Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD), a common cause of poor leg circulation. PAD results when blood vessels, narrowed by fatty plaque buildup, can't deliver enough oxygen and nutrients to keep tissues healthy.

People with diabetes, neuropathy and PAD may get a foot ulcer which won't close if there is infection, or if diabetes and PAD interferes with your ability to heal.

Caution: New Drug-Limited by Federal law to investigational use.
