Regenerative Medicine Clinical Trials for Patients

At the UPMC Center for Innovation in Restorative Medicine, our clinical trials can help people who have suffered severe and debilitating injuries restore body function and lead normal and active lives.

Our current clinical trials allow patients to access new regenerative medicine techniques and promising treatments for:

Head and Facial Injuries Our experts are evaluating the effectiveness of using a patient’s own fat to correct facial deformities.
Severe Burns Using an investigative drug, we're working to advance the standard of care for restrictive scar tissue caused by burns.
Amputated Limb Pain Our experts are working to reduce pain at amputation sites using a patient’s own fat.
Traumatic Limb and Muscle Loss UPMC researchers and surgeons consistently strive to find better ways to restore muscles and tendons.
