    KRF Clinical Practice Guidelines for Treatment of Keloids:

    (January 11, 2019) KRF is proud to announce publication of several Keloid Treatment Guidelines. Authoring and production of these Guidelines has been a time-consuming task, yet one that has been long waited for. These Guidelines reflect the most up to date approach to treatment of keloids. We hope that the Guideline allow for establishment of standards in treating keloid patients across the globe. KRF Practice Guidelines.

    Journal of Keloid Research:

    (December 3, 2016)KRF is proud to announce establishment of Keloid Research, an open access scientific publication of the Keloid Research Foundation. Until now, keloid manuscripts have been published in a variety of journals. Our goal is to create a centralized publishing platform for all researchers who are passionate about this disorder, so that relevant clinical and laboratory research can be published in one place and under one umbrella. The journal is aiming to provide an international forum for the publication of original work, describing basic science, translational and clinical investigations in keloid disorder.

    Keloid Staging System:

    (August 19, 2016) In his most recent publication, "Neck Keloids: evaluation of risk factors and recommendation for keloid staging system" Dr. Tirgan has designed a staging system that allows for proper categorization and grouping of keloid patients into various stages.

    To assess each keloid patient properly, to better understand the natural history of this disorder, and to be able to compare future keloid study results among various patients groups, we clearly need a staging system that can allow us to describe the severity keloid disorder based on the size, location and/or extent of the keloidal lesions; as well as history of surgery or radiation therapy, and perhaps other factors that are currently unknown to us.
