It is hypothesised that IL-10 may be a potentially beneficial therapy for the reduction of scarring in Non Caucasians of African-Caribbean ancestry.
This Renovo clinical trial will be carried out primarily to establish the effects of four doses of Prevascar on 1cm incisional and excisional scars in subjects of African Continental Group ancestry, as compared to placebo, and to further investigate the safety and tolerance of intradermally injected Prevascar in wounds.
Allocation: Randomized, Control: Placebo Control, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Double Blind (Subject, Caregiver, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor), Primary Purpose: Treatment
