A study involving 3 patients was performed to evaluate the efficacy of Matristem, an extracellular matrix scaffold derived from the porcine urinary bladder matrix (UBM), to promote natural healing in patients with severe, chronic wounds that did not respond well to standard wound management. In all cases, the wounds closed after only a few weeks of repeated treatments with UBM, with all patients showing complete epithelialization of the wound with limited formation of scar tissue by 13 weeks after first treatment. These initial results suggest that UBM warrants further investigation for treatment of chronic nonhealing ulcers that are recalcitrant to standard wound therapies.
