Abstract

Epidermolisis Bullossa (EB) is classified as genodermatosis, a hereditary genetic skin disorder that causes severe, chronic skin blisters with painful and life-threatening complications. Currently, there is no effective therapy or cure for EB. Over the past decade, however, a number of important advances have been made that bring the clinic closer to new methods of treatment, including gene therapy, protein replacement therapy, cell therapy (allogeneic fibroblasts, Mesenchymal Stromal Cells (MSCs), bone marrow stem cells transplant, culture/vaccination of revertant mosaic keratinocytes, gene editing/engineering and the clinical application of inducible pluripotent stem cells. Tissue engineering scientists are still trying to develop structures that mimic the structure and natural healing process to promote skin reconstruction in the event of incurable injuries. Although the cure for EB remains elusive, recent animal model data and preliminary human clinical trials have raised the expectations of patients, clinicians and researchers whereby modifying the disease and improving life quality are attainable goals. In addition, the lessons learned from the treatment of EB may have a significant impact on improving the treatment of other genetic diseases.
