Do I qualify?



Do you have Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD)?
Do you have a sore on your leg, ankle, or foot that will not heal?
Have you been diagnosed with Critical Limb Ischemia?

You may qualify to participate in a study of an investigational treatment for patients with PAD and non-healing wounds if you are between 18-80 years old with a diagnosis of critical limb ischemia.

This study seeks to determine if treatment with adult stem cells, taken from the patient’s own bone marrow, can improve healing and prevent amputation.
