Trial To Assess Efficacy Of A Chimeric Skin In Patients With Epidermolysys Bullosa

2014-07-23 21:12:37 | BioPortfolio

Summary

A phase II, comparative, open label, prospective, multicentre clinical trial where each patient will undergo two procedures; implant of a patch of cultured chimeric skin (experimental therapy) in a half of the skin lesion and an occlusive non-adherent dressing (control) in the other half for 12 months of follow-up in two Spanish centres.

Description

Reconstruction of interdigital commisures in patients with severe skin syndactyly using laminar grafts that will be uniformly and systematically taken with an electrical or compressed air dermatome on an aseptic area and with the same extent and depth in microns in all patients.

Immediately after the surgical procedure, a patch of cultured chimeric skin (experimental therapy) will be implanted in a half of the skin defect of the patient, and an occlusive non - adherent dressing (control) will be implanted in the other half.

Patients will initially be followed up every two days until epithelisation occurs (approximately 21 days after surgery) and at 3,8,and 12 months of follow-up.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A form of epidermolysis bullosa characterized by serous bullae that heal without scarring. Mutations in the genes that encode KERATIN-5 and KERATIN-14 have been associated with several subtypes of epidermolysis bullosa simplex.

Form of epidermolysis bullosa characterized by atrophy of blistered areas, severe scarring, and nail changes. It is most often present at birth or in early infancy and occurs in both autosomal dominant and recessive forms. All forms of dystrophic epidermolysis bullosa result from mutations in COLLAGEN TYPE VII, a major component fibrils of BASEMENT MEMBRANE and EPIDERMIS.

Form of epidermolysis bullosa characterized by trauma-induced, subepidermal blistering with no family history of the disease. Direct immunofluorescence shows IMMUNOGLOBULIN G deposited at the dermo-epidermal junction.

Form of epidermolysis bullosa having onset at birth or during the neonatal period and transmitted through autosomal recessive inheritance. It is characterized by generalized blister formation, extensive denudation, and separation and cleavage of the basal cell plasma membranes from the basement membrane.

Group of genetically determined disorders characterized by the blistering of skin and mucosae. There are four major forms: acquired, simple, junctional, and dystrophic. Each of the latter three has several varieties.
