At the European Academy of Dermatology and Venereology (EADV) Congress 2023, epidermolysis bullosa (EB) experts discussed investigational treatments for EB and experience in practice with currently approved treatments in an Industry Expert Hub session sponsored by Amryt Pharmaceuticals

The session was chaired by Professor Cristina Has and featured presentations from Dr Alexander Nyström and Dr Su Lwin on preclinical models and pathophysiology of EB, wound healing, and translating research into investigational therapies. In the second half, Professor Christine Bodemer and Dr Mauricio Torres explored real-world experience and what the latest data could mean for people living with EB.
