Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Number of patients having obtained 95% or greater re-epithelialization of target burn at Day 28. [ Time Frame: 28 days of treatment period ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Degree of scarring at Day 28 and Day 56. [ Time Frame: 28 days of treatment period plus 28 days of post treatment period ]

Estimated Enrollment: 14
Anticipated Study Start Date: January 2, 2018
Estimated Study Completion Date: June 2019
Estimated Primary Completion Date: June 2019 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: MEBO Wound Ointment (MEBO) Drug: MEBO Wound Ointment (MEBO)
Topical application twice a day
Active Comparator: Standard of care Procedure: Standard practice for partial thickness burns
Daily application of collagenase ointment with polysporin powder and covered with gauze dressings

Detailed Description:
MEBO-BPII-001 is a single-center, randomized, standard care-controlled pilot study of topically applied MEBO in subjects with partial thickness burns expected to heal in 14 days. Twice daily application of MEBO versus standard of care will be evaluated in a parallel design. Fourteen subjects will be randomized (7 subjects per treatment arm) to one of two treatment groups.
