Skin Grafts

University Research Park Company Creates New Method for Treating Burns

by Laura Braden

When people become severely burned, there are limited options available to repair the skin and tissue that have been affected. People must undergo painful and tedious surgery and skin transplants to repair the damaged skin and tissues. Stratatech Corp., a Madison, WI based company, has been focused on creating new treatment options for severe burns and recently developed new human skin tissue called StrataGraft that was used to heal severe burn wounds in 30 patients during a recent clinical trial.
