Atopic dermatitis (AD) is a chronic inflammatory skin disease that affects a large percent of the world́s population. This long-lasting skin disease has been treated by different approaches according to its causative agent and severity. Nonetheless, the use of advanced biomaterials to treat AD is poorly explored. The present study assessed the protective(More)
Chondroitin sulfate (ChS), a sulfated glycosaminoglycan, poly(vinyl alcohol) (PVA) and bovine bone powder (BBP) were blended to form a novel eco-friendly biocomposite through cyclic freeze-thawing under mild conditions. The systematic investigation reveals that the content of BBP has a remarkable effect on the pore size, porosity, mechanical and liquid(More)
In this study, copper nanoparticles (CuNPs) were synthesized and stabilized into a chitosan/poly(vinyl alcohol) (CP) based film using a simple protocol under mild conditions. The polymeric matrix utilized in this study allows synthesizing stable nanoparticle with narrow size distribution within the film matrix. Further, this system showed very attractive(More)
