The Ford Fallout: "We discovered a way to grow skin for burn victims. Now our research is in jeopardy"
from Toronto Life
“For burn patients to survive, you have to heal their wounds. Currently, we remove burned tissue in surgery and cover those areas with the patient’s healthy skin, extracted from somewhere else on the body. If it’s a big burn—40 per cent or more of total body surface area—finding adequate unburned skin is difficult." Marc Jeschke, a surgeon and director of the Ross Tilley Burn Centre at Sunnybrook, on the provincial funding cuts.
