Clinical Trials to begin at Southern Illinois University and McGill University

Applied Tissue Technologies has enrolled the Xpansion Skin Grafting Instrument kit in two clinical trials.  The trials will start in the 2nd quarter of 2013, and provide data to support the efficacy of the device and procedure (to transplant minced split thickness skin autografts (STSG)s.  Additionally the use of negative pressure wound therapy will be tested as a wound dressing as compared to standard dressing protocols.

The trials will utilize the Silhouette Camera system by Aranz to precisely monitor the healing progress of the wounds, and the development of the micrografts.
