Evolution of Kerecis™

Dermal substitutes or surrogates are a rapidly expanding area of medical technology. Absent of the morbidity and mortality associated with skin grafting, these products confer various benefits when attempting to heal or cover large soft tissue defects or slowly healing wounds. Research has demonstrated the ability of these products to recruit stem cells, decrease wound healing time, serve as scaffolds for eventual skin graft, and prevent future surgeries or procedures, all without donor site morbidity. Sources for these grafts vary from mammalian to fish and reptilian, and vary in size, composition, and anticipated use.
