StrataGraft (allogeneic cultured keratinocytes and fibroblasts)
Allogeneic cultured keratinocytes and fibroblasts is a biologic skin substitute for grafting deep partial-thickness burns. It is an allogeneic cellularized scaffold product containing metabolically active cells that produce and secrete a variety of growth factors and cytokines that are known to be involved in wound repair and regeneration.
Approval was based on the phase 3 STRATA2016 trial. Results showed that by 3-month follow-up, durable wound closure without the need for autografting had occurred at StrataGraft treatment sites in 59 (92%) of 64 patients. Burns. 2021 Apr 23; S0305-4179(21)00110-8
