Epidermolysis Bullosa (Yasuyuki Fujita, Associate Professor)

The Special Clinic for Epidermolysis Bullosa (EB) is open on the 1st and 3rd Friday afternoons of the month. Dr. Ken Natsuga, Dr. Shota Takashima and I see the patients. Patients from all over the nation consult us, we conduct screenings and other investigations in order to make initial diagnoses, and we provide daily care and other ongoing treatment to patients who are diagnosed as EB. We cooperate with Ms. Hayashi, a wound, ostomy and continence (WOC) nurse who specializes in wound treatment at Hokkaido University Hospital. It’s possible for us to give advice on better daily habits and to introduce and prescribe wound dressings. In cases of severe EB, the following may occur: esophageal stenosis (difficulty in swallowing), malnutrition and anemia, deformation of the digits, malignant tumors and other complications. We check for the above symptoms and cooperate with other departments whenever necessary. In FY 2017, companies conducted a clinical trial for dystrophic EB. I’ll develop a treatment that’s convenient for patients, and I’ll make ongoing efforts to put in into practical use.
