Member Submitted Study Seeking Participants:
Autologous Stem cell skin research for people with limb loss
The goal of this study is to permanently convert the skin on an amputee's residual limb to help reduce skin breakdown by making the residual limb skin more like the skin on the palm and sole, which is much more resistant to breakdown and wounds. We will take a sample of the palm/sole skin from the participant, grow the stem cells, inject them into the residual limb, and monitor for changes in the skin on the residual limb. We know that this might help many amputees to more fully use their prosthetic devices, since prosthetic use is often significantly limited by skin breakdown at the residual limb.
Potential subjects should be within 2 hours driving distance from Baltimore.
