Abstract:

The ACT study finished its sixth year of operation reaching two milestones. First, all subject enrollment and data collection was concluded. Final total number of subjects in the study was 307. Second, with the over sampling of larger burns during the past year, the results stayed the course. Data analyses showed that for all burn groups, small and large, that increased burn rehabilitation time provided during acute hospitalization resulted in less burn scar contracture. Due to high fiscal responsibility, a final no cost extension was requested to support further data analyses.
