A dialkylcarbamoylchloride-coated dressing was assessed for its ability to manage or prevent infection - and promote healing - in a case series of diabetic foot ulcers. Target ulcers were treated with good traditional wound care and dressed with the test dressing for a period of up to 4 weeks. Reductions in the number and severity of the symptoms and signs of infection were seen in the large majority of ulcers, and wound size decreased in all, during the study period. A larger clinical trial is required to confirm these findings.
