The 1st work group meeting on Asia-Pacific Skin Banking guidelines, with the theme on discussing Asia Pacific Burn Association (APBA) Guidelines for Skin Banking in therapeutic applications was successfully held at 18th May 2018 in Radisson Blue Hotel, Chongqing China. Totally 7 regional representatives including Prof. Gaoxing Luo, Weifeng He, Dr. Guangping Liang from China, Prof. Rajeev Ahuja from India, Dr. Nandita Melati from Indonesia, Dr. Alvin Chua from Singapore, and Prof. Hsian-Jenn Wang from Taipei, China attended the meeting.

Then, each regional representative made an overview introduction of skin banking istatus in their region by making a 15 min presentation respectively. After that they discussed draft of Asia-Pacific Skin Banking Guideline and reach an agreement that the revised guidelines will be further reviewed at the 2nd Work Group Meeting on Asia-Pacific Skin Banking guidelines which will be held in August at Taiwan, while more APBA leading members as well as working group members will attend.

Asia pacific region manages the most number of burn casualties, however, there is no single regional authority for tissue/skin banking guidelines. Creating a set of guidelines for skin banking not only helps with clinical assurances for patients, research and education, but also can support each other from different Asia-Pacific counties during humanitarian crisis. Until now, members involved in Asia-Pacific Skin Banking guidelines include China, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Taipei China, Bangladesh, Thailand, Singapore and Japan, total nine countries and regions.

With the progress of the guidelines, it will lay the foundation for further substantive cooperation among respective member countries or regions in the Asia Pacific Skin Banking Organization.
