Here's an article from Podiatry Today that discusses the trial of APC by Dr. Barrett.

DaveP:

This is the most fascinating article I have read here in a very long time!
If you proceed with this, would you please report back here on your experience?
You have made me aware - and I assume others - of an area of study and treatment of this condition that I had not previously even heard of. Now I will look into further.
While reading the article you posted, I did wonder this: since 'neovascularization' seems to be a result of this treatment, and since that is also an outcome of using the Anodyne Light Therapy, (vis a vis nitric oxide), why wouldn't the light therapy do the same thing - but without an injection of anything?? From what I have read it is very effective for neuropathy, at least.
I'm just curious now about these two therapies (the APC and Anodyne Light).
Anyway, VERY interesting. Thank for you posting this here - and I hope you will keep us informed.

Dorothy,

Dr. Z said he will be evaluating the procedure in December, so hopefully he will provide much needed feedback. Intriguing, indeed.
