PASADENA, Calif., Feb. 1, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Circularity Healthcare announced it had successfully executed a contract with the Professional Educational Research Institute (PERI) in 2020 to immediately begin a new clinical trial to study the use of D’OXYVA® to help prevent amputations and treat human diabetic foot ulcers at one-tenth the time and cost, and at least five times the efficacy of competing modalities. A widely recognized global clinical research organization (CRO), PERI will specifically study at multiple sites at prestigious U.S. universities the use of D’OXYVA® to help address the recent epidemic of DFUs occurring in diabetic patients due to long-term pandemic quarantines and stay-at-home orders. Manufactured by Circularity, D’OXYVA® is a painless, noninvasive transdermal delivery system used in minutes to significantly improve blood perfusion, tissue oxygenation, and wound healing even where standard treatments have failed.
“D’OXYVA’s pivotal human clinical trial for complete healing of diabetic foot ulcers has been approved by the Western Institutional Review Board (WIRB), the largest in the world, and will include over a dozen high profile research sites at top U.S. universities and clinics,” said Senior Sales and Marketing Manager for Circularity, Jennifer Boadilla-Pelaez, RN. “Thousands of competing products in the past nearly twenty-five years have failed in achieving what D’OXYVA® has obtained in terms of regulatory approvals, clinical safety and efficacy in the past seven years. This is truly a game-changing milestone, not just for the company itself, but the entire medical community and the world and a preliminary report with meaningful results is expected within 6 months from starting the pivotal trial,” said Dr. Charles M. Zelen, PERI’s CEO.
DFUs are a major wound complication arising out of diabetes mellitus and occur in 3–13% of global diabetes patients, affecting millions of people. DFUs are caused by a variety of factors including decreased activity, diminished blood circulation, and people with underlying health conditions like diabetes are at higher risk for complications from COVID-19. Healthcare workers can expect to see far more instances of this persistent problem, especially with quarantine lockdowns, and it represents a significant health and economic risk to both patients and the overall healthcare system. Effective treatments that can reduce DFU recovery time, like D’OXYVA®, are absolutely crucial to combatting this newest wound epidemic.
