CUTISS continues collaboration with Santobono Hospital in Naples to transform pediatric burn care

A significant milestone in pediatric burn care in Italy has been achieved with the inauguration of the new pediatric burn center at Santobono Hospital in Naples, a new center of excellence at European level.

Since 2021, Santobono has been the coordinating center in Italy for our Phase 2 clinical trial of denovoSkin™, the bioengineered autologous human skin tissue. Notably, Santobono was the first pediatric center in the world to perform a denovoSkin™ transplant in a neonate.

We feel incredibly proud and honored to collaborate on this groundbreaking project with Dr. Marcello Zamparelli, underscoring our commitment to change the status quo in skin surgery and improve patient outcomes with cutting-edge regenerative medicine. 

The new facility will enable quicker interventions for patients and allow continuous control, monitoring, and verification of the therapies and innovative treatments they receive.

Burns are the third leading cause of death in children. In Campania region of Italy, between 2022 and 2023, 120 young patients were treated. Of these, 70% had severe or very severe burns; 80% required surgical hospitalizations that lasted an average of 15 days. It is in this context that the new pediatric burn center at Santobono-Pausilipon has been inaugurated.

This news and announcement has featured across Italian media including in RAI, La Presse Il Mattino, ANSA, and Naples Today.
