Clinical Outcomes After Treatment With RestrataTM Wound Matrix in Diabetic Foot Ulcers (DFU)


The primary objective of this study is to determine the outcomes of patients who receive a certain type of skin substitute called RestrataTM Wound Matrix (Restrata™). Results of this study may be used to make decisions on whether to conduct additional studies on this particular wound matrix product. RestrataTM has been cleared by the Food and Drug Administration for use in certain types of ulcer treatments, including the type that will be part of this study (diabetic foot ulcers).

  • Device: Restrata TM Wound Matrix
    • The RestrataTM Wound Matrix is a sterile, single use device intended for use in local management of wounds

Arms, Groups and Cohorts

  • Other: Restrata TM Wound Matrix
    • Prospective, single armed, non-randomized study with direct assignment

Clinical Trial Outcome Measures

Primary Measures

  • Percent of wound closed
    • Time Frame: Up to 14 weeks
    • from baseline at week 0 to 14weeks

Secondary Measures

  • Change in wound area from baseline
    • Time Frame: Baseline and weekly for up to 14 weeks
    • Wound area measurements will be made via tracing acetate every week for 14 weeks.
  • Time to wound closure
    • Time Frame: Baseline up to 14 weeks
    • The number of weeks until complete closure is first identified will be determined for each patient who has been deemed completely closed within the 14 week treatment period.

Participating in This Clinical Trial

Inclusion Criteria

  • Male or female age 18 or older

  • HbA1c < 12%
  • Serum Creatinine < 3.0mg/dl
  • Patient has adequate circulation to the affected extremity, as demonstrated by one of the following within the past 60 days of the first screening visit:
  • Dorsum transcutaneous oxygen test (TcPO2) with results

≥30mmHg, OR

  • ABIs with results of ≥0.7 and ≤1.5, OR
  • Doppler arterial waveforms, which are triphasic or biphasic at the ankle of affected leg

Exclusion Criteria

  • Patients presenting with an ulcer probing to bone (UT Grade IIIA-D)
  • Patients whose index diabetic foot ulcers are greater than 25cm2
  • Patient has an additional wound within 3cm of the study wound
  • Patients not in reasonable metabolic control
  • Patients with a known history of poor compliance with medical treatments
  • Patients who have been previously enrolled into this study, or are presently participating in a clinical trial with DFU indications
  • Patients with known or suspected local skin malignancy to the index diabetic ulcer
  • Patients diagnosed with autoimmune connective tissues diseases
  • Patients that have received a graft material on the study ulcer within the previous 30 days
  • Patients who are pregnant or breast feeding
  • Patients who are taking medications that are considered immune system modulator
  • Study wound has closed > 30% over the two-week run-in period
