Healing Diabetic Foot Ulcers: Regenerative Medicine, Dermagraft, and Heal2gether


Researchers have been working for more than 20 years to develop regenerative medicine therapies which will repair or replace tissue or organ function that does not heal or repair on its own.  This field, still in its infancy, holds great promise.  To date, however, there’s been a fair share of disappointment surrounding regenerative medicine, since after all these years it hasn’t  delivered cures for diseases like Parkinson’s or type 1 diabetes.  That said, regenerative medicine has had its successes, and one of them is in the treatment of diabetic foot ulcers.  Dean Tozer, Senior Vice President of Advanced BioHealing, Inc. answered questions for us about diabetic foot ulcers, Dermagraft, a therapy used to treat them, and a new community health education program called Heal2gether.
