PDGF-B is believed to promote wound healing by directly stimulating cells involved in wound repair and also by eliciting the production of other growth factors. Excellarate is being developed to provide advanced wound care for chronic non-healing diabetic foot ulcers, which are difficult to heal with standard of care and are associated with substantial risks of infection or amputation.

The Phase 2b Matrix clinical study was not powered to nor did it differentiate between the relative contributions of the individual Ad5PDGF-B and collagen components that make up Excellarate - but both the Excellarate and the collagen matrix study arms showed substantial improvements in achieving wound closure as compared to standard of care, which is the FDA-accepted control considered appropriate for product registration studies. Approximately 45% of patients receiving the collagen matrix in the Phase 2b study had complete wound closure by 12 weeks, compared to a 31% wound closure rate for the standard of c
