Hi,
The FDA has added a cancer warning to this cream. In the article it says that diabetics use this for leg and foot ulcers. I just want you all to be aware of this. Below is the link.

From the Site said...
The FDA added its most serious warning to the company's cream medication Regranex, which is prescribed to treat severe foot and leg ulcers in diabetics. The new boxed warning states that patients who used three or more tubes of Regranex over a 20-month period were five times more likely to die of cancer.

When patients used lower amounts of the cream, the FDA said their chances of developing cancer were no higher than patients who had never used the drug.


Just wanted to get the word out.
