In this study, we investigated in vitro the role of the degree of acetylation (DA) on some biological properties of chitosan films. We noticed that, whatever the DA, all chitosan films were cytocompatible towards keratinocytes and fibroblasts. We also demonstrated that the higher the DA of chitosan, the lower was the cell adhesion on the films. Fibroblasts appear to adhere twice as much as keratinocytes on these materials. We observed that keratinocyte proliferation increases when the DA of… CONTINUE READING
