Development of a systemic antibody therapy for burns

Burns are one of the most painful injuries a child can sustain and survive. Unfortunately current treatments are still a long drawn out process relying heavily on wound dressings that need regular and painful changes and still result in horrific scarring and contractures. We have taken the novel approach to develop a systemic, injectable antibody therapy that heals wounds from the “inside out”. This ground breaking approach could be life changing for the many children who suffer extensive burns.
