Effects of Chitosan and Nanoparticles on Survival of Schwann Cells and Dorsal Root Ganglion Neurons

We have systematically examined the effects of chitosan film or chitosan in combination with nanometal particles (nanogold or nanosilver particles) on the growth of Schwann cells (S16) and DRG neurons (50B 11). Our results strongly suggest chitosan and chitosan in combination with nanogold particles had no effects on the growth kinetics of Schwann cells but… CONTINUE READING
