Gamma-poly(glutamic acid) (gamma-PGA), a hydrophilic and biodegradable polymer, was chosen to modify chitosan matrices to produce a gamma-PGA/chitosan composite biomaterial. Three types of both dense and porous composite matrices containing different amounts of gamma-PGA were fabricated. Chitosan and gamma-PGA matrices were also prepared as controls… CONTINUE READING
