Sanford Health is heading into the second phase of clinical trials involving autologous (the patient’s own) stem cells to treat non-healing wounds and ulcers on the body. The trial will be recruiting patients 18 and older to continue testing the efficacy of stem cells in treating wounds that would not heal due to a person’s preexisting conditions. People with weakened immune systems could also benefit from this treatment, given that it would prevent the enormous risk of infection that non-healing wounds pose. Additionally, the treatment could even be applied to heal wounds from surgeries, expediting recovery time dramatically.

According to Dr. David Pearce, PhD, and vice president of research at Sanford "This clinical trial can help explore treatments for people with non-healing wounds, including people who have diabetes and others with conditions that affect their quality of life."

Advancements in bioengineering, as demonstrated in this study, should accelerate therapeutic options to treat a wider variety of ailments. By banking their own valuable stem cells, families can ensure that they will have access to these emerging therapies soon.
