Registry Trial of the Effectiveness of Platelet Rich Plasma for Chronic Non-Healing Wounds


This study will examine differences in the process of wound-healing in patients treated with a gel made from platelet rich plasma (a concentration of proteins derived from a patients own blood) compared to patients treated with usual medical treatment . This study seeks to enroll patients who are 18 or older with a non-healing skin wound that is at least 30 days old. Only patients with Diabetic Foot Ulcers, Venous Ulcers, or Pressure Ulcers will be included in the study.
