Study Of An Investigational Medical Device To Transplant Cells For Repigmentation Of Vitiligo

Description

Seeking men and women with stable vitiligo for a study of an investigational device for transplanting healthy skin cells to return skin color to areas that have lost their pigmentation due to stable vitiligo.

Overview

We are studying whether a medical device that is used to treat people with burn injuries is safe and effective for repigmentation of skin due to stable vitiligo. Volunteers will have three different amounts of their healthy skin cells transplanted to three different areas of their skin using the investigational device. A fourth area will receive no treatment. The fifth area will receive the standard Melanocyte Keratinocyte Transplantation Procedure (MKTP).

What we're hoping for

We hope to evaluate a medical device to see if it is safe and effective for transplanting skin cells to return skin color to areas that have lost their pigmentation due to vitiligo.
