The SMOOTH Trial

In this clinical trial, which involves civilians and military veterans with scars that are over a year old recruited from Burns Centres in Birmingham and Swansea, we are assessing the effectiveness of laser therapy to breakdown scar tissue from burn and blast injuries and restore lost function. Our researchers are also investigating the use of lasers as a new way of delivering anti-scarring drugs. This research is led by Professor Naiem Moiemen and Professor Janet Lord.
