Project Description: We have developed a minimally manipulated amnion-derived biomaterial for burns and wounds. Our preliminary studies have demonstrated safety and efficacy in wound closure and scar-free healing. To enhance our licensing position we propose commercially focused research objectives to establish SOPs for production, product release criteria, and packaging and storage conditions.
