Chitosan in a teabag? – National Deskfast Day in the US

Tea or coffee is certainly a philosophical question. What is the first thing you drink when you arrive at work? In all cases, it's about getting the day off to a good start. But is too much caffeine good? Can't you do something with chitosan? We looked around and found what we were looking for in South Korea. A new type of tea bag that decaffeinates the tea in the cup itself. An alginate-chitosan hydrogel was used for this.

Carboxymethyl chitosan alginate as an enhancer of bone cement repair activity

Critical bone defects often require the use of bone grafts or artificial bone substitutes such as calcium phosphate cement (CPC) or magnesium phosphate cement (MPC). In the study presented here, MPC is modified with CMC and sodium alginate to form a novel bone cement and its properties are investigated in vivo and in vitro.

Wound treatment with chitosan

The healing process of a wound injury follows the steps of hemostasis, inflammation, cell proliferation, and regeneration until complete healing of the damaged tissue. In chronic wounds, the progress of these steps is disturbed, leaving the wounds inflamed for a long time. In an aging society with bad health habits (poor diet, little exercise), the number of chronic wounds is going to increase. Therefore, the research on materials that improve wound healing is important. The publications presented below are devoted to research about chitosan-based materials for the treatment of chronic wounds.

Publications in January 2017 - layer-by-layer coating with chitosan

The year 2017 started in January with a high number of new publications about chitosan and chitosan derivatives (383 articles). Top countries in publishing about chitosan were China (75), the United States (39) and India (25). This time we focus on the layer-by-layer (LbL) assembly of chitosan mostly together with other biomaterials and possible applications.

Publications in May 2011

In May the publication rate of chitosan issues slightly dropped again. 84 articles were published which means six less than in April 2011, but two publications more than in May 2010.

Revolution: coming soon - universal donated blood

The team of Prof. Maryam Tabrizian from McGill University in Montreal, Canada developed a procedure that might be the basis for the application of donated blood independently from the blood group.
