All volunteers enrolled in the pilot study experienced significant reduction of pain, typically from an 8 on the Visual Analog Scale for Pain (VAS Scale) down to 1 in a week or two. In addition, all subjects saw an increase in appetite, mood and markedly better sleep. Patients suffering from stage IV gangrene experienced improvements in wound healing within a few weeks. No adverse events of any kind were reported by the subjects.
Further studies are needed to design proper frequency and length of applications with D'OXYVA® to maximize benefits and better determine time of healing of such difficult wounds. As such, Dr. Hari is now designing a randomized clinical trial on 90 volunteers with stage II diabetic ulcer wounds, and he will act as the principal investigator on the study. The goal is to measure various parameters for wound healing using FDA-cleared noninvasive diagnostics, including continuous and noninvasive capillary blood flow volume change, continuous and noninvasive real-time monitoring of transcutaneous CO2 partial pressure (PCO2), functional oxygen saturation (SpO2), pulse rate (PR), pulsation index (PI), heart rate (HR), and perfusion index (PI).
Stage II pressure ulcers are characterized by partial-thickness skin loss into but no deeper than the dermis. This includes intact or ruptured blisters and abrasions. Stage II is an ideal stage to catch and potentially reverse the worsening of these painful wounds that are sometimes called non-healing wounds. However, with current methods, the vast majority of these cases end up in loss of limbs via amputation.
"From its inception, Circularity Healthcare has set out to significantly reduce the suffering of patients with diabetes and cardiovascular related complications that often surface in mostly untreatable wounds, and to help reverse these conditions. Besides significantly reducing pain, improving sleep and appetite in nearly all cases, we have had great success with D'OXYVA® in fully healing and even closing some of the most severe lower extremity wounds related to burns, trauma, metabolic syndrome, and cardiovascular disorders such as Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD) in pilot studies in patients from the U.S, Europe, and Asia. Most of these positive results have been observed in just 4-8 weeks at the most," said Norbert Kiss, Circularity Healthcare President & CEO.
"I'm enthusiastic to test and potentially offer this advanced wound care modality to our patients as soon as possible as an adjunct application to speed up healing for difficult-to-heal wounds at our Hospital in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia," said Dr. Harikrishna K. R. Nair, Head of the Wound Care Unit at Hospital Kuala Lumpur, Founding President, Malaysian Society of Wound Care Professionals, President, Malaysian Biotherapy Society, Vice Director, Asian Academy of Wound Technology (AAWT).
