  Diabetes foot ulcers are a major predictor of future lower-extremity amputation in patients with diabetes. The animal studies have indicated that treatment with a new herbal extract named ANGIPARS™ improves healing of chronic ulcers. The main objective of the study was to evaluate the safety and healing rates of diabetic foot ulcers in patients treated with ANGIPARS™.
Ten diabetic patients (7 males and 3 females) were eligible for enrollment in this single arm before-after clinical trial. The target wound`s greatest length and width was measured at baseline. The target wound was photographed at baseline and then every two weeks. The wound area was determined by means of planimetry.
The mean age of patients was 57± 2.3 years. The mean surface area of ulcers was 12.32±11 cm2, 9.55±9 cm2, and 6.96±6 cm2 at baseline, one month and two months of study, respectivly. Our results showed that the drug could reduce the wound size at least 50% during 8 weeks period. We found no adverse side effects in our patients.
The main conclusion of the present study was to show the efficacy and safety of ANGIPARS™ as a novel therapy in diabetic foot ulcers.

  Some diabetic foot ulcers, which are notoriously difficult to cure, are one of the most common health problems in diabetic patients .There are several surgical and medical options which already have been introduced for treatment of diabetic foot ulcers, so some patient will require amputation. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of intravenous Semelil (ANGIPARS™), a naive herbal extract to accelerate healing of diabetic foot ulcers. A multi-centric randomized controlled trial was conducted to evaluate intravenous Semelil for healing of diabetic foot ulcers. Sixteen diabetic patients were treated with intravenous Semelil, and nine other patients were treated with placebo as control group. Both groups were otherwise treated by wound debridement and irrigation with normal saline solution, systemic antibiotic therapy and daily wound dressing. Before and after intervention, the foot ulcer surface area was measured, by digital photography, mapping and planimetry. After 4 weeks, the mean foot ulcer surface area decreased from 479.93±379.75 mm2 to 198.93±143.75 mm2 in the intervention group (p = 0.000) and from 766.22±960.50 mm2 to 689.11±846.74 mm2 in the control group (p = 0.076). Average wound closure in the treatment group was significantly greater than placebo group (64% vs. 25%, p= 0.015). This herbal extract by intravenous rout in combination with conventional therapy is more effective than conventional therapy by itself probably without side effect. However, further studies are required in the future to confirm these results in larger population.
