Abstract In this work, a composite sponge was produced by physically mixing hydroxybutyl chitosan with chitosan to form a porous spongy material through vacuum freeze-drying. Hydrophilic and macroporous composite hydroxybutyl chitosan sponge was developed via the incorporation of chitosan into hydroxybutyl chitosan. The composite sponge showed higher porosity (about 85%), greater water absorption (about 25 times), better softness and lower blood-clotting index (BCI) than those of chitosan sponge and hydroxybutyl chitosan sponge. The composite sponge with good hydrophilic could absorb the moisture in the blood to increase blood concentration and viscosity, and become a semi-swelling viscous colloid to clog the capillaries. Cytocompatibility tests with L929 cells and HUVEC cells demonstrated that composite sponge were no cytotoxicity, and could promote the growth of fibroblasts. It made up for the shortcomings of hydroxybutyl chitosan with unfavorable antibacterial effect to achieve a higher level of antibacterial (>99.99% reduction). Eventually, the vivo evaluations in Sprague–Dawley rats revealed that epithelial cells attached to the composite sponge and penetrated into the interior, in addition to this, it was also proved that the composite sponge (HC-1) had a better ability to promote wound healing and helped for faster formation of skin glands and re-epithelialization. The obtained data encourage the use of this composite sponge for wound dressings.

Cutaneous chronic wounds are characterized by impaired wound healing which may lead to infection and even amputation. To surmount this problem, we developed a chitin whisker (CW)/carboxymethyl chitosan nanoparticles (CMCS NPs)/thermosensitive hydroxybutyl chitosan (HBC) composite hydrogel (CW/NPs/HBC-HG) as a wound dressing for treating chronic wounds. Upon introduction of CWs, the composite hydrogel exhibited a significant decrease in gelation temperature and enhanced mechanical properties. The...

In situ hydrogels have attracted considerable attention in tissue engineering because of their minimal invasiveness and ability to match the irregular tissue defects. However, hydrous physiological environments and the high level of moisture in hydrogels severely hamper binding to the target tissue and easily cause wound infection, thereby limiting the effectiveness in wound care management. Thus, forming an intimate assembly of the hydrogel to the tissue and preventing wound infecting still rem...

Uncontrolled hemorrhage leads to high death risk both in military and civilian trauma. Current hemostatic agents still have various limitations and side effects. In this study, natural diatom silica obtained from diatomite and diatom culture was purified and developed for hemorrhage control. To improve the biocompatibility and hemostatic performance of diatom silica, a series of chitosan-coated diatom (CS-diatom) was developed. The composition of CS-diatom prepared was optimized by in vitro hemo...

Abstract A series of deoxycholate-chitosan-hydroxybutyl (DAHBCs) with different degrees of substitution (DS) of hydrophobic deoxycholate (DOCA) were successfully synthesized. The lower critical solution temperature (LCST) of various DAHBCs could be adjusted from 35.4 °C to 42.1 °C by controlling the graft density of DOCA. DAHBCs could self-assemble into nanoparticles (NPs) which gradually evolved from irregular aggregates to spherical particles with the decrease of the DS of DOCA groups. The siz...

A method was developed in which cellulose (CEL) and/or chitosan (CS) were added to keratin (KER) to enable [CEL/CS+KER] composites formed to have better mechanical strength and wider utilization. Butylmethylimmidazolium chloride ([BMIm+Cl–]), an ionic liquid, was used as the sole solvent, and because the majority of [BMIm+Cl–] used (at least 88%) was recovered, the method is green and recyclable. FTIR, XRD, 13C CP-MAS NMR and SEM results confirm that KER, CS and CEL remain chemically intact and ...

A novel silver nanoparticles (AgNPs)/chitosan composite dressing with asymmetric wettability surfaces was successfully prepared via a simple two-step method for biomedical applications as wound healing materials. First, AgNPs were assembled into the chitosan sponge which was prepared by lyophilization process. Then one side of the sponge was modified by a thin layer of stearic acid. The incorporation of AgNPs into chitosan dressing could enhance the antibacterial activity against drug-sensitive ...

Abstract Positively-charged chitosan gauzes stop bleeding from wounds by electrostatically interacting with negatively-charged cell membranes of erythrocytes to cause erythrocyte agglutination and by sealing wounds through tissue adhesion. In the following work, nonwoven chitosan gauze was impregnated with PolySTAT, a synthetic polymer that enhances coagulation by cross-linking fibrin, to generate PolySTAT/chitosan gauzes with improved hemostatic efficacy. When comparing nonwoven chitosan and Po...

Abstract The objective of this study was to develop a novel surface fluid-swellable chitosan (SFSC) fiber for potential wound dressing. The SFSC fiber was successfully prepared by surface modification of chitosan fiber with succinic anhydride, which was characterized by FTIR and solid-state 13 C NMR. The SFSC fiber exhibited better water absorption capacity (approx. 2980%) and stronger antibacterial activities (both above 90%) against Escherichia coli ( E. coli ) and Staphylococcus aureus ( S. a...

Abstract Uncontrolled hemorrhage before hospitalization and infection are two great challenges for the safety of human life. Although chitin (CH) is a kind of effective hemostatic materials, it presents poor softness and antibacterial activity, which hinders its potential application. Herein, for the first time, loose corn stalk (CS) and silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) were used to adjust the dense structures and poor antibacterial activities of solo chitin sponge. And then the crosslinked CH/CS/Ag...

Abstract null null Electrospun nanofibers have been widely used in various biomedical applications. However, electrospinning methods generally focus on monolithic and coaxial fibers while ignoring Janus fibers. In this study, Janus-structured nanofibers for wound healing were fabricated via uniaxial electrospinning based on the phase separation of polyvinylpyrrolidone and polycaprolactone in solution. To enhance the bioactivity and antibacterial activity of wound dressings based on the Janus nan...

Although a series of biomass-derived hemostats has been developed, the desire for green-prepared hemostatic materials with biosafety has not decreased. Herein, we constructed porous carboxymethyl chitosan/sodium alginate/Ca(OH)2 powders (PCSCPs) with suitable adaptability for instant control of irregular hemorrhage via a facile and green approach. By one-pot chemical crosslinking of carboxymethyl chitosan and sodium alginate, hydrogels were formed and immediately ionically cross-linked along wit...

In this study, an efficient composite hemostatic material (DA-diatom-T) was prepared, using a polydopamine layer as a linker to immobilize thrombin on the surface of diatom biosilica. DA-diatom-T retained the porous structure of the diatom with high water absorption capacity, which can absorb 31 times its own weight of water. The thrombin activity of DA-diatom-T was as high as 5.81 U mg-1 that could be maintained at 67% after 30 days at room temperature. DA-diatom-T exhibited non-toxicity to mou...
