Mechanism of action

Cx501 is an artificial skin graft obtained from bringing together keratinocytes from the patient and skin fibroblasts from a healthy donor. Both components are embedded in a plasma matrix which provides the adequate environment for natural healing to occur. These healthy fibroblasts provide the patient with the structural protein that is lacking in the skin of Epidermolysis bullosa (EB)patients.
