Brief Summary:
To compare MW-III to Silvadene® Cream 1% (Silver Sulfadiazine) with respect to "time to healing" in second-degree thermal burns

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Burns Drug: MW-III Procedure: Silver Sulfadiazine Phase 2

Detailed Description:
This is an open-label, randomized, active-controlled pilot study to evaluate the efficacy and safety profile of topical MW-III versus an active control (Silvadene® Cream 1% [Silver Sulfadiazine]) in the treatment of second-degree thermal burns in adults. Approximately 30 subjects per treatment group will be enrolled and 60 subjects in total.
