Better outcomes using cultured, self-donated, epidermal cells for serious burn victims

from Cell Transplantation Center of Excellence for Aging and Brain Repair via Medical Xpress

The use of meshed split skin autographs is a standard treatment for large, deep burns. However, serious scarring is often a result. In an effort to improve wound healing and reduce scarring, a team of researchers in The Netherlands tested a treatment technique on patients with serious, deep burns that employed SSGs along with autologous cultured proliferating epidermal cells compared to SSGs alone. In a multicenter, 40-patient clinical trial they found that using SSGs in combination with autologous cultured proliferating epidermal cells provided better wound healing and less scarring than SSGs alone. more
