Keloid scar project -RAFT
RAFT is working on the development of a dermal scaffold intended for use after surgical excision of a keloid. A dermal scaffold is a type of treatment used by surgeons, which acts as a template to guide the growth of new skin at a wound site and avoid scarring. However, RAFT’s scaffold for keloid treatment will be specifically designed to inhibit the recurrence of keloid scarring.

This novel treatment could allow surgical intervention while keloids are smaller and reduce the amount of time that patients would be burdened with the appearance and symptoms of a keloid. This has the potential to transform the lives of keloid sufferers, and deliver cost savings to the NHS by decreasing the time spent on follow up and aftercare.
