Condition(s) targeted: Wound Healing

The hypothesis is that topical opioids will hasten wound healing in humans.
Official title: Topical Hydromorphone for Wound Healing
Study design: Treatment, Randomized, Single Blind, Placebo Control, Single Group Assignment, Efficacy Study
Primary outcome: Healing rates and microvessel density will be compared statistically for the control-ointment versus hydromorphone-ointment subjects.
This is based on our published data that morphine is a powerful stimulant of angiogenesis and
our preclinical study of wounds in rats which demonstrate that topical opioids (morphine,
hydromorphone and fentanyl) hasten healing of punch biopsy wounds. This study will focus on
hydromorphone which was more powerful than morphine as a wound-healer in the rat study.
