Antibacterial, multifunctional hydrogel based on carboxymethylchitosan

Hydrogels can have versatile applications in biomedicine by forming a 3D network. In the study presented here, an antibacterial, adhesive, self-repairing hydrogel was prepared from carboxymethylchitosan (CMC) and oligomeric polycyanidin (OPC) and the influence of OPC content was investigated.

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.

CMC-containing hydrogels for the repair of skin injuries

Deeper skin injuries require appropriate wound dressings to promote healing. In the presented study, CMC-containing hyaluronic acid-dopamine hydrogels were synthesized, characterized and investigated in vivo for their wound healing properties.

Chitosan and its derivates in biomedicine

The development of nanotechnology has opened up new applications in the field of biomedicine. Chitosan and its derivatives can be used in a variety of ways, for example to enable targeted and sustained drug release. To give you an overview, we present a review that deals with the current research on the application of chitosan and its derivatives, especially carboxymthylchitosan (CMC), in biomedicine.

Publications in April 2016 - Tissue Engineering

In April 2016, 268 publications about chitosan were released. In addition to China (52) and the United States (25), Brazil (15) is on the third place of nations with the most publications. The following studies deal with chitosan as drug delivery system to support regeneration of dermal tissue or articular cartilage.
