How We Got Here

It has been known for decades that there are two isoforms of Stem Cell Factor, a short form and a long form.  Based on the research of our scientific founders it was discovered that only the long form of SCF was up regulated at sites of chronic inflammation.  It was this discovery that led to the formation of Opsidio and the development of OpSCF.
