This document will address terminology for products that contain living cells or constitute tissue-based products for the management or treatment of skin wounds. This document will also describe a classification and nomenclature for CTPs based on their composition. Products meeting the following three criteria are included in the classification: 1.Are used for the management or treatment of skin wounds. 2.Contain viable (living) cells OR are processed animal or human tissue OR are designed based on essential features of living tissue such as biomechanics, structure, or biochemical composition, inclusive of products derived from biologic, synthetic or biosynthetic materials. 3.Are incorporated into the tissue (eg, through degradation and/or remodeling in vivo). For the purposes of this document, bilayered or multilayered products are considered tissue-based products even if only one layer meets all of the aforementioned criteria.
KeywordsChronic wounds, wound healing, skin wounds, ulcers, matrix, scaffold, cellular therapy, dressings
