Chitosan is a potential material for the preparation of nerve repair conduits. In order to find a better chitosan for the application in peripheral nerve regeneration, the effects of the degree of deacetylation (DD) on the physicochemical properties and Schwann cell affinity of chitosan films have been evaluated. Six kinds of chitosan samples with similar(More)
Biodegradable nerve guidance conduits (NGCs) represent a promising alternative to current clinical nerve repair procedures. Chitosan, a natural polysaccharide that has excellent biocompatibility and biodegradability, can be used as a nerve conduit material. The purpose of this work was to study the nerve cell affinity of chitosan modified by blending with(More)
