Abstract : A project to develop a rapidly applied, sprayable, film-forming plastic to be dispensed from aerosol bombs or other spraying equipment, for the mass local therapy of burns was begun. This report of the achievements of this project is divided into three Sections: Section 1 is concerned with the treatment of experimental burns on hogs with the plastic dressing and the evaluation of the plastic for possible local and systemic toxicity. Section II deals with studies on comparative wound healing rates in rats using the plastic dressing and a control dressing of vaseline gauze. Section III describes the clinical trials of the aeroplast dressing on burns and a wide variety of surgical wounds in humans.
