I would like to bring forth an interesting study used to treat vitiligo. Vitiligo is a loss of skin pigment. Dark skin turns white in vitiigo. When you do a strip surgery, you find that the scar is often bright pink or white. One way we have treated these white strip scars in the past is to place grafts from FIT into the scar. We have found that this often helps to make the scars regain some pigment through the production of melanin. In this study normal skin grafts were placed into the white areas of skin. They also developed pigment and turned a more natural state of brown in this dark skinned individual.
