Abstract

A new keratin-based hydrogel wound dressing was applied to the neck of a patient who was suffering from recessive dystrophic epidermolysis bullosa. A significant improvement was observed in the robustness of skin in this area: reduced propensity to blister and improved healing of blisters. The improvement allowed the cessation of use of secondary dressings for this area. The factors gave a significant improvement in quality of life for the patient.
