The American Burn Association states that roughly 450,000 patients receive hospital and emergency room treatment for burns each year and this figure does not include treatment for burns at other healthcare facilities, such as private medical offices. Roughly 3,400 deaths occur each year from burns and are the third leading cause of death in the home, according to the Center for Disease Control. There is published data in the medical literature that FGF-1 can speed up the healing of burns that the drug is also an effective wound healing agent when applied to areas form which a skin graft has been removed. Zhittya Genesis Medicine plans to file an IND for the burn wound healing indication.
