Diabetes-related foot disease in Australia: a systematic review of the prevalence and incidence of risk factors, disease and amputation in Australian populations.
Zhang Y, van Netten JJ, Baba M, Cheng Q, Pacella R, McPhail SM, Cramb S, Lazzarini PA.
We aimed to systematically review the literature reporting the prevalence and incidence of risk factors for DFD (e.g. neuropathy, peripheral artery disease), of DFD (ulcers and infection), and of diabetes-related amputation (total, minor and major amputation) in Australian populations.

Efficacy of a topical concentrated surfactant gel on microbial communities in non-healing diabetic foot ulcers with chronic biofilm infections: A proof-of-concept study.
Malone M, Radzieta M, Schwarzer S, Jensen SO, Lavery LA.
This proof-of-concept study sought to determine the effects of standard of care (SOC) and a topically applied concentrated surfactant gel (SG) on the total microbial load, community composition, and community diversity in non-healing diabetic foot ulcers (DFUs) with chronic biofilm infections.
