This is amazing! Dystrophic epidermolysis bullosa is truly awful. Curious if the treatment can be used in the mucosal membranes as well to mitigate the malnutrition and anemia. Thanks for sharing!

Unfortunately only 1 of the participants had the dystrophic version of the disease, all others had the recessive, simplex version. I think we should hold off on full judgement until it's proven right. Though as someone with this, I'm very excited.

Edit: I'm wrong, disregard this comment

According to the study “all patients had recessive dystrophic epidermolysis bullosa except for one who had dominant form.”

If this was treating EBS then the published results would have said that. Having DEB was definitely a criteria when they were recruiting. I saw the recruitment go out from DEBRA.

You're totally right, I was mistaken. Apologies

No worries. There are a lot of sub types of EB and it can be hard to keep them all straight if you're not living with it, or studying it.

I would hope so. Trying to do oral surgery on a patient with EB was extremely challenging!
