Brief Summary:
This is a randomized, within-patient controlled study to compare the clinical performance of the ReCell Device with that of Split-thickness Meshed Skin Grafts for the treatment of second degree burns. The hypothesis to be supported are: 1) non-inferiority with the primary efficacy endpoint defined as recipient site wound closure at week 4 follow-up visit of the ReCell-treated area as compared to that of the STMSG-treated area, and 2)superiority in the healing of the ReCell donor site as compared to the STMSG donor site at week 1.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: all participants
All participants will receive both ReCell and split-thickness skin graft
Device: ReCell and Split-thickness skin graft
The surgeon will be required to select two similar non-contiguous injury areas with both areas being at least 100cm2 and second degree depth/severity. One area will be treated using ReCell and the second using Split-thickness Skin Graft.




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Recipient site wound closure for both ReCell and STMSG [ Time Frame: 4 weeks ]
    Recipient site wound closure for both ReCell and STMSG will be defined as the presence of >95% epithelialization with contiguous layer of viable epithelium without the need for secondary surgical intervention. The outcomes of the recipient site wound closure will be documented photographically using standardized digital photographic techniques and will be transferred to a Central Reading Facility to be reviewed by qualified Independent Clinical Experts. Avita Medical expects that the wound closure of the ReCell treated recipient sites will be no worse than that obtained using STMSG.

  2. Superiority of the ReCell donor site healing as compared to STMSG donor site [ Time Frame: 1 week ]
    Donor site healing will be considered as complete (100%) wound closure, defined as the ability to separate the dressing from the wound bed and the visible presence over the entirety of the wound of dry, opalescent-pink external surface of the newly formed outer layer of the epidermis. The outcomes of wound closure will be documented using standardized photographic techniques and will be transferred to a Central Reading Facility to be reviewed by qualified Independent Clinical Experts. Avita Medical expects the wound closure of the ReCell donor sites will be superior to the STMSG donor site.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Percent of epithelialization of the ReCell and STMSG treated areas [ Time Frame: all follow-up visits up to week 16 ]
    The percent epithelialization of the ReCell and STMSG treated areas will be assessed using standardized planimetry/tracing procedures and will be forwarded to the Central Reading Facility for calculation using a computerized measurement technique.

  2. recipient site wound closure [ Time Frame: week 2 ]
    The recipient site wound closure at week 2 will be evaluated using Investigators assessment of wound healing

  3. Pain and appearance at the ReCell and STMSG treatment areas and at donor sites [ Time Frame: all follow up visits up to week 16 ]
    Subject assessment of pain at the ReCell and STMSG treatment and donor sites will be performed at all study follow-up visits up to week 16. The subject assessments will be performed using VAS ( visual analogue scale) style questionnaires.

Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • The subject requires primary skin grafting as a result of an acute thermal burn injury
  • The area of the burn injury is at least 200cm2 (1% TBSA in adults) if a contiguous wound, or at least 100cm2 for each of 2 noon-contiguous wounds
  • The area of total burn injury is 1-20% TBSA
  • The burn injured area can be divided into two treatment areas ( control and treatment) with 100-320cm2 area for each treatment type
  • The study treatment area is a second degree burn injury
  • The subject is between 18-65 years of age
  • The subject is willing to complete all follow-up evaluations required by the study protocol
  • The subject is to abstain from any other treatment of the wound(s) for the duration of the study unless medically necessary
  • The subject agrees to abstain from enrollment in any other clinical trial for the duration of the study
  • The subject and/or guardian are able to read and understand instructions and give informed, voluntary, written consent
  • The subject is able and willing to follow the protocol requirements

Exclusion Criteria:

  • The subject's burn injuries were caused by chemicals, electricity, and/or radioactive substances
  • The total subject burn injury is less than 1% or more than 20% TBSA
  • The subject has a microbiologically proven pre-existing local or systemic bacterial infection
  • The subject has been receiving a systemic antibiotic for more than 48 hours prior to grafting
  • The subject is known to have a pre-existing condition that may interfere with wound healing ( e.g. malignancy, diabetes, or autoimmune disease)
  • The subject is unable to follow the protocol
  • The subject is taking medication known to have an effect on wound healing or skin pigmentation ( e.g. systemic corticosteroids, retinoids, etc)
  • The subject has other concurrent conditions that in the opinion of the investigator may compromise patient safety or study objectives
  • The subject has a known hypersensitivity to Trypsin or Compound sodium Lactate for Irrigation (Hartmann's) solution
