Development of new hydroactive dressings based on chitosan membranes: characterization and in vivo behavior.


Different poly(vinyl alcohol) (PVA)/chitosan lactate (ChL)-blended hydrogels containing nitrofurazone as a local anti-infective drug were prepared by the phase-inversion technique. The swelling degree, surface free energy, mechanical properties, and nitrofurazone release of these membranes were determined. Blood compatibility of these systems was evaluated… (More)
