Simple classification can help define and predict limb-threatening diabetic infections

Research groups from Texas, Chicago, Washington State and the Netherlands partnered to publish a landmark study validating the Infectious Disease Society of America's guidelines for the clinical classification of diabetic foot infections.

"We're all very pleased to see this study in print," noted co-author David G. Armstrong, DPM, PhD, Professor of Surgery at Scholl's Center for Lower Extremity Ambulatory Research (CLEAR) at Rosalind Franklin University. "What this provides us now is confirmation that a simple system that labels infections as mild, moderate or severe can have a dramatic impact on predicting hospitalization and amputation. This will go a long way toward helping us to most effectively guide therapy and communicate with our patients."
