Functionalization of bacterial cellulose wound dressings with the antimicrobial peptide ε-poly-L-Lysine.

Abstract

Wound dressings based on bacterial cellulose (BC) can form a soft and conformable protective layer that can stimulate wound healing while preventing bacteria from entering the wound. Bacteria already present in the wound can, however, thrive in the moist environment created by the BC dressing which can aggravate the healing process. Possibilities to render… (More)
