Eligibility Criteria

Male or female participants at least 18 years old.

Inclusion Criteria: - Subject is a minimum of 18 years of age. - Subject has read, understood, and signed an Institutional Review Board (IRB)-approved Informed Consent Form (ICF). - Subject is able and willing to follow study procedures and instructions. - Subject reports moderate VLU-related pain (defined as ≥4 based on maximum pain level over preceding 24 hours) on numeric rating scale (NRS) at both Week -2 and Day 0). - Subject has a partial or full-thickness VLU between 1-60 cm2 and 1-36 months duration, which, in the opinion of the Investigator, has not adequately responded to conventional ulcer therapy. - Female subject of childbearing potential has a documented negative urine pregnancy test. - Subject (male or female) agrees to use highly effective methods of contraception for the duration of the study. Exclusion Criteria: - Subject has more than 1 VLU. - Female subject who is lactating. - Subject with significant or severe non VLU-related chronic pain which, in the Investigator's opinion, would impact subject's ability to evaluate their VLU-related pain. Subject with non-VLU-related chronic pain must be on a stable pain medication regimen and must, in the Investigator's opinion, not be anticipated to require a new pain medication for the chronic pain condition during the course of the study. - Subject is not willing to discontinue the use of topical analgesics at the VLU (topical anesthetic is permitted for debridement). - Subject who has arterial disease, as determined by an ankle-brachial index (ABI), of <0.65. - Subject who has received an investigational drug, device, or biological/bioactive treatment within 30 days prior to study enrollment. - Subject who is scheduled to have a vascular intervention on the study extremity during the study. - Subject with a biopsy confirmed active malignancy at the VLU. Also, subject with any active malignancy not at the VLU, with the exception of squamous cell carcinoma or basal cell carcinoma. - Subject who is currently receiving, anticipates receiving, or has received, at any time within 30 days prior to Screening visit, topical corticosteroids at the VLU. - Subject has vasculitis, severe rheumatoid arthritis, and other collagen vascular diseases. - Subject has signs and symptoms of wound infection, cellulitis, or osteomyelitis at the VLU. - Subject has a VLU with an avascular wound bed. - Subject has a VLU with exposed bone, tendon, or fascia. - Subject has other wounds (DFU, surgical, etc.) on the same limb as the VLU. - Subject has a known hypersensitivity to bovine collagen or to the components of the Apligraf agarose shipping medium. - Subject previously treated with Apligraf, or any other cell or tissue-based product at the VLU within 30 days of the Screening visit. - Subject who, in the opinion of the Investigator, has a history of alcohol or substance abuse within the previous year that could interfere with study compliance (eg, inability to attend scheduled study visits). - Subject, who in the opinion of the Investigator, for any reason other than those listed above, will not be able to complete the study per protocol.
