It’s aim was to formulate quick, safe and low priced products to immediately stop blood by  procuring grail scale-up of chitosan and its water soluble derivatives, conducting chemical and biological re-evaluation of those products and then converting prototypes to commercially valuable outcome. It is expected that the grafts will become very effective for the treatment of burn and Diabetic Foot Ulcer (DFU) patients in Pakistan and all across the world.

Cotton Craft, industrial partner, has started working on attaining the certification from Drug Regularity Authority of Pakistan (DRAP) to start human trials and to manage commercial scale sterilisation and packaging. The project team is also undertaking all steps to find a clear way forward for product registration and manufacturing approval.
