Phase 3, Open-label Clinical Trial of EB-101 for the Treatment of Recessive Dystrophic Epidermolysis Bullosa (RDEB)

The purpose of this trial is to evaluate safety and efficacy of surgical application of EB-101 (autologous, gene-corrected keratinocyte sheets) as a treatment of recessive dystrophic epidermolysis bullosa (RDEB).

Stanford is currently accepting patients for this trial.
