EB House Austria

Help - Cure - Learn: These are three words which speak for themselves and clearly describe the three organisational units and the focus of the efforts of the EB House Austria. The three pillars are EB Outpatient Unit, EB Research Unit and EB Academy.

This special clinic for people with EB - the youngest of whom are often called "butterfly children" - was founded in 2005 by the patient organisation DEBRA Austria. The EB House Austria, located at and affiliated to the General Hospital Salzburg has become a well-known centre of expertise - both in Austria and abroad. For the treatment of a multi-systemic disease like EB, specific knowledge, years of experience and much empathy is required. EB patients are able to find all of this in the EB House established by the patient organisation DEBRA Austria.

The EB House Austria consists of 3 units:

  • In the EB Outpatient Unit, doctors and therapists collaborate with other departments of the General Hospital Salzburg to offer the best possible medical treatment. At present, only the symptoms of EB can be treated; there is no cure for the underlying cause.
  • In the EB Research Unit, a research team works on techniques for the alleviation and healing of EB. The newest scientific findings in the areas of skin cancer research, gene and cell therapy offer hope for a life without blisters, wounds or pain.
  • The EB Academy provides training and education for those living with the disease as well as for medical staff. In addition, it is responsible for the national and international networking of doctors and researchers to facilitate the mutual exchange of specialised knowledge and practice.
