The trial involved injecting diabetes patients suffering from non-healing diabetic foot ulcers (DFU) with a cell preparation containing adult stem cells harvested from their own fat.

The results showed that the treatment induced regeneration of the blood vessels surrounding the DFUs, accelerated healing – all without serious side effects.

In this regard, the experts considered ¨this work should be reviewed as it demonstrates the possibility of a novel cell injection therapy that can alleviate pain and infection, accelerate wound healing and avoid amputation.¨

Cell-based therapies have gained attention as viable options to help restore damaged blood vessels while inducing the formation of new ones.
