November is National Diabetes Month. Did you know that every 1.2 seconds, someone develops a diabetic foot ulcer (DFU)1, of which 50% of DFUs will become infected, and of those, 20% result in amputation?2,3
At Amniox Medical, we empower healthcare professionals to deliver optimal patient healing outcomes with our family of products made from cryopreserved umbilical cord and amniotic membrane.

Jim was working with a doctor who was frustrated with a non-healing complex chronic wound on one of his terminally ill patients. The patient had wounds in both feet that had not healed over one and a half years. Jim asked the doctor for the chance to show him what NEOX could do for that patient. The patient, a 47-year-old male, had lost all ten of his toes to amputation and had other comorbidities, including type 2 diabetes and pancreatic cancer. The doctor was sure he’d need to amputate this patient’s legs if his wounds did not heal. He had already tried other allografts that failed to achieve closure. The doctor placed two NEOX Cord 1K applications on the right foot, which completely healed after two months, and the left foot required three applications. When Jim saw the patient during his final application of NEOX, the patient held a new pair of custom-made orthopedic shoes and was ecstatic to wear shoes again. He thanked Jim profusely and said, “Even if I ‘go’ soon, I am so happy to be able to walk and enjoy my family now!”
Supports regenerative healing and functional recovery for a variety of wounds—ranging from common surgical wounds to complex chronic wounds4-11
For over 30 years, our pioneering scientists have focused on understanding the regenerative features of human birth tissue—ultimately identifying HC-HA/PTX3 as the key orchestrator in human birth tissue regenerative healing.4
Our CRYOTEK® Cryopreservation Process has been shown to preserve the structural and functional integrity of the HC-HA/PTX3 complex significantly better than heat dehydration—delivering the benefits of the natural tissue to the wound.4,11
One-year safety, Healing and Amputation Rates of Wagner 3-4 Diabetic Foot Ulcers Treated with Cryopreserved Umbilical Cord by William A. Marston, MD
In this webinar, Dr. William A. Marston will be showcasing the results from the one-year follow-up study to the Phase 2 open label, multicenter pilot study of Cryopreserved Umbilical Cord (cHUC) allograft TTAX01 for the treatment of Wagner Grade 3-4 diabetic foot ulcers (DFUs).
Surgical Augmentation and Wound Management in Lower Extremities by Mark Gould, MD and Eric Giza, MD
This webinar will be a contemporary overview of these regenerative tissues, where expert physicians will review the underlying biology, present their clinical experience, and share challenging cases specific to a variety of lower extremity applications.
In support of Wound Healing Awareness Month (WHAM), we held a successful live webinar, led by Dr. William Marston on the use of Cryopreserved Umbilical Cord Allograft to Treat Wagner Grade 3-4 DFUs. Dr. Marston’s findings revealed positive outcomes from the 1-year follow-up of this pilot study and a promising future in the treatment of complex chronic wounds. This is the first study to tackle the treatment of Wagner Grade 3-4 DFUs.
