Fibroin has been used in textile manufacturing and for several biomaterial applications, whereas sericin is considered a waste material in the textile industry; however, after mixing with other polymers and cross-linking it can form a film or a scaffold with good characteristics that can be used in the cosmetic and pharmaceutical industries.

It is found that SS produced from various extraction methods has different molecular weights, zeta potential, particle size and amino acid content, and SS from all extraction methods could still promote collagen production in a concentration-dependent manner, even at high concentrations that are toxic to cells.

INH-proliposomes were evidently nontoxic to respiratory-associated cells, and did not activate AM to produce inflammatory mediators—including interleukin-1β, tumor necrosis factor-α (TNF-α), and nitric oxide—at a toxic level, and are potential candidates for an alternative tuberculosis treatment.
Monitoring of inflammatory mediators induced by silk sericin.
