NEWS HIGHLIGHTS

Clinical Trials Related to Mafenide

Prospective Evaluation of the Effects of Topical Therapy With SulfamylonŽ For 5% Topical Solution on Autograft Healing in Subjects With Thermal Injuries Requiring Meshed Autografts: A Comparison to a Historical Control Group [Completed]
The primary objective is to compare the effectiveness of treatment with SulfamylonŽ solution as the initial topical moist dressing over meshed autografts following the initial graft procedure on preventing graft loss in a prospective cohort of subjects versus a historical control group in a non-inferiority trial.

Study of the Treatment of Burn Wounds With Antimicrobial Topical Soaks [Terminated]
Determine effectiveness of various antimicrobial solutions on burn wounds (infections, wound healing, length of hospital stay).

Patients Response to Early Switch To Oral:Osteomyelitis Study [Not yet recruiting]
Based on the current literature, investigators hypothesize that patients with osteomyelitis who are treated with the standard approach of intravenous antibiotics for the full duration of therapy will have the same clinical outcomes as patients treated with the experimental approach of intravenous antibiotics with early switch to oral antibiotics. The primary objective of this study is to compare patients with osteomyelitis treated with the standard approach of intravenous antibiotics for the full duration of therapy versus patients treated with intravenous antibiotics with an early switch to oral antibiotics in relation to clinical outcomes at 12 months after discontinuation of antibiotic therapy. Secondary objectives of the study include the evaluation of adverse events related to the use of antibiotics as well as the cost of care evaluated from the hospital perspective.

Study of Low Adherent Dressing Versus the Standard of Care for the Management of Skin Grafts Over Thermal Burns [Active, not recruiting]
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the P6 Low Adherent Study Dressing relative to the Standard of Care (SOC, Mafenide Acetate 5% Solution) for the management of skin grafts in burn wounds resulting from thermal burn injuries.
