TheraSkin is a biologically active, cryopreserved real human skin allograft. As real living skin, TheraSkin retains the body’s superior blueprint for healing and a more robust supply of key ingredients necessary for wound healing and repair.
TheraSkin® provides a broad spectrum of the major growth factors, cytokines* and types of collagen recognized to be important and relevant characteristics associated with wound healing and wound repair. In fact, compared to bioengineered skin substitutes (BSSs) on the market today, TheraSkin provides a significantly higher quantity of human collagen** and a more complete profile of human collagen. TheraSkin has the relevant, biological wound healing characteristics of human skin…because it is human skin.
Twelve (12) different growth factors were found in TheraSkin®, including those from the five (5) major growth factor families and proteins involved in skin wound healing
Sixteen (16) different cytokines were found in TheraSkin®, including several pro-inflammatory and anti-inflammatory cytokines necessary to regulate interactions between cells that participate in the immune response of healing.
Fourteen (14) types of human collagen were found in TheraSkin®, including three major types (I, III and IV) necessary to promote healing.
