Study Details

Chronic Wounds

(IRB#: IRB_00128708)

The purpose of the study is to find out if human amniotic fluid can improve your chronic extremity wound, decreasing the inflammation and assisting the wound(s) to heal. Amniotic fluid is the liquid that surrounds the unborn, growing baby during pregnancy. Amniotic fluid is mainly water, but also has other components like proteins and antibodies that protect the baby from infection and help growth. Some of these components have been shown to have an anti-inflammatory effect. The fluid is obtained during the delivery of the baby and processed so that it is sterile and can be injected into wounds.
