I don't know anything about this drug but I thought it would be of interest
to anyone using it.

The FDA is conducting a safety review based on study data suggesting there
may be an increased risk of death from cancer in diabetic patients using
Regranex (becaplermin) Gel, a skin product used to heal leg and foot ulcers.
While the review is ongoing, the FDA recommends health care professionals
discuss the potential risks and benefits of using Regranex with their
patients.

This early communication is in keeping with FDA's commitment to inform the
public about its ongoing safety reviews of drugs. As soon as this review is
complete, FDA will communicate the conclusions and recommendations to the
public.
