  Purpose

This clinical trial tests the hypothesis that engineered human skin can reduce the requirements for harvesting of conventional skin autografts by providing more skin for grafting from the donor skin used to treat the wounds. In life-threatening burns (e.g., greater than 50% of the total body surface area), greater availability of skin may be definitive to patient survival, and may reduce scar formation at the donor site, and from use of widely-meshed skin autograft.

Further study details as provided by University of Cincinnati:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • The ratio of closed wound area to donor skin area for engineered skin substitutes compared to meshed, split-thickness skin autograft. [ Time Frame: Post-operative day 28+/-3 ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Qualitative outcome of scar formation of engineered skin substitutes or meshed, split-thickness skin autograft by the Vancouver Scar Scale which evaluates erythema (redness), pigmentation (color), pliability (softness), and scar height (smoothness). [ Time Frame: Post operative days 28+/-3 and 365+/-30 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
