Current Primary Outcome Measures  ICMJE
 (submitted: June 18, 2021)
  • Percent Area of Treatment Sites Requiring Autografting by Month 3 [ Time Frame: 3 Months ]
    Percent area autografted by Month 3 is the sum of the percent areas at each study session/visit, up to and including Study Session 7/Month 3 (± 14 d).
  • Number of Participants Classified as a Responder (Based on Durable Wound Closure at Month 3) [ Time Frame: Month 3 ]
    Wound closure of the treatment site was defined as complete skin re-epithelialization and the absence of drainage. A participant whose StrataGraft treatment site achieves durable wound closure without autograft placement is classified as a responder.
Original Primary Outcome Measures  ICMJE
 (submitted: December 22, 2016)
  • The difference in the percent area of the StrataGraft treatment site and control autograft treatment site that is autografted by 3 months [ Time Frame: 3 Months ]
  • The proportion of subjects achieving durable wound closure of the StrataGraft treatment site at 3 months without autograft placement [ Time Frame: 3 Months ]
Change History
Current Secondary Outcome Measures  ICMJE
 (submitted: July 12, 2021)
  • Pain at the Designated Donor Sites by Day 14 [ Time Frame: Day 3, Day 7 and Day 14, average of the 3 days reported ]
    Pain scores from the FACES scale range from 0 (no pain) to 5 (worst pain). Pain scores from Day 3, Day 7, and Day 14 (where available) are averaged for the summary statistics.
  • Total Scar Assessment (POSAS) Score by Observer at Month 3 [ Time Frame: at Month 3 ]
    Total Score is the sum of the scores for vascularization, pigmentation, thickness, relief, pliability, and surface area. For each of the 6 assessment categories, the scale ranged from 1=normal skin to 10=worst scar imaginable, with the highest possible score of 10. A higher score indicates worse scarring, so the best possible total score for the 6 categories is 6, and the worst possible score is 60.

Descriptive Information
Brief Title  ICMJE StrataGraft® Skin Tissue in the Promotion of Autologous Skin Regeneration of Complex Skin Defects Due to Thermal Burns That Contain Intact Dermal Elements
Official Title  ICMJE A Phase III Open-label, Controlled, Randomized, Multicenter Study Evaluating the Efficacy and Safety of StrataGraft Skin Tissue in Promoting Autologous Skin Tissue Regeneration of Complex Skin Defects Due to Thermal Burns That Contain Intact Dermal Elements and for Which Excision and Autografts Are Clinically Indicated
Brief Summary

About 70 participants will be enrolled. They will have complex skin defects because of burns caused by heat.

The burns will:

  • be on 3-49% of the participant's total body surface area (TBSA)
  • require surgery for skin replacement
  • include intact dermal elements

The burns are called deep, partial-thickness thermal burns because the skin was damaged by heat but still has some dermis that was not damaged.

The dermis is the layer of skin under the outer layer (epidermis). It is the thickest layer of the skin that provides strength and flexibility to the skin.

All patients will receive both treatments, but on different areas of their burns. Their wounds will not be compared to other patients. One treatment area on their own body will be compared to the other one.

This will help to find out if StrataGraft is safe and effective for deep partial thickness burns. It will also see if StrataGraft might help healing enough to use it instead of the patient's own healthy skin to repair the damage.

Condition  ICMJE Burn, Thermal
Intervention  ICMJE
  • Biological: StrataGraft Skin Tissue
    StrataGraft® skin tissue is provided as a suturable rectangular piece of stratified epithelial tissue composed of a living dermal matrix containing dermal fibroblasts overlaid with human epidermal keratinocytes (NIKS®).
  • Procedure: Autograft
    The current standard of care procedure for the treatment of severe burns. The procedure involves the removal of a sheet of healthy skin from an uninjured site on the patient and using it to cover the original burn wound.
Study Arms  ICMJE Experimental: StrataGraft Skin Tissue
  • Biological: StrataGraft Skin Tissue
  • Procedure: Autograft
