Effects of the addition of chitosan in the base of dentures

Published on Category: Scientific news - Chitin and Chitosan

Tags: chitosan, antibacterial, denture substitutes, denture base

Good dentures are becoming increasingly important as the population ages. Conventional materials for the base of dentures are often porous and thus susceptible to deformation or microbial colonization. To prevent this, chitosan is added to polymethyl methacrylate resin in the presented study.

Antiviral activity of chitosan-based bioactive polymers against bacteriophage Phi6

Published on Category: Scientific news - Chitin and Chitosan

Tags: chitosan, antiviral drugs, SARS-CoV-2

The antiviral properties of chitosans, in contrast to chitosan derivatives, have been little considered. For this reason, the study presented here investigated the antiviral activity of three chitosans against the SARS-CoV-2 surrogate, bacteriophage phi6.

Antibacterial, multifunctional hydrogel based on carboxymethylchitosan

Published on Category: Scientific news - Chitin and Chitosan

Tags: hydrogels, antibacterial, CMC, Crosslinking

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.

Chitosan-coated selenium nanoparticles for brain cancer therapy

Published on Category: Scientific news - Chitin and Chitosan

Tags: chitosan, nanoparticles, Selenium, glioblastoma

Glioblastomas are difficult to treat due to the blood-brain barrier and drug resistance. To improve the efficacy of treating glioblastomas with selenium nanoparticles (Se-NPs), Se-NPs were coated with chitosan in the presented study.
