At PolarityTE, we are leveraging our patient-specific approach to develop novel treatments for patients dealing with a wide range of the most complex wounds.
Skin is more than cells creating a barrier. It is the largest organ of the human body, with complex architecture and appendages, such as hair follicles and sweat glands, and important physiologic functions, such as the ability to fight infection and regulate body temperature.
Wounds are a breakdown of the skin caused by various factors such as pressure, poor blood flow, and infection. In some patients, the damage to the skin is severe enough that wounds stay open for months or years, a condition known as chronic wound.
