Epidermolysis Bullosa is a rare inherited disorder in which the skin is fragile and forms liquid filled blisters at sites of rubbing. These blisters can become infected, causing emotional and physical distress to sufferers and reducing their ability to participate in day today life. Standard-of-care management aims to treat the blisters and to prevent them from forming. There are currently no curative treatments.
Mariposa’s approach is showing promise in managing both blister formation and infection in relevant subtypes of this condition.
