Absorbent alginate fibres modified with hydrolysed chitosan for wound care dressings--II. Pilot scale development.

Abstract

Fibres have been used extensively in wound dressing applications as they provide a high surface area for absorption, ease of fabrication and softness. It is common practice for commercial wound dressings to be produced from natural materials, such a marine polysaccharides, as they are predominantly biocompatible, non-toxic, and often display bioactive… (More)
