Title Biomechanical Soldier Treatment and Regeneration Consortium (STRaC): Preclinical Study to evaluate the use of UBM-ECM for Partial Thickness Skin Wounds
Summary This award provides support to evaluate the use of a biologic scaffold harvested from the porcine urinary bladder (UBM) for the treatment of burn injuries. The clinical trial will be conducted at the Institute for Surgical Research at Fort Sam Houston in San Antonio, TX. The pilot study will involve the treatment of donor sites for patients that require split-thickness skin grafts. The subsequent trial will involve treatment of the primary wound itself, thus obviating the need for a donor tissue harvest.
