New Treatment Helps Victims of Serious Burns

A new experimental treatment for burn victims has already been tested at the Maricopa Medical Center in Phoenix and has produced amazing results for one patient at the facility. Tiara Del Rio was treated for injuries she sustained in a house explosion. An innovative new skin spray that incorporates cells from her own body along with an enzyme solution was used to help her regrow skin on severely burned areas. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration provided permission for the center to use this new treatment on Miss Del Rio, which is expected to reduce scarring and to speed healing for her burns as she continues treatment.
