Example text

The binding strength of the chitosan hydrogel prepared from 30–50 mg/mL of Az-CH-LA was similar to that of fibrin glue. Compared to the fibrin glue, the chitosan hydrogel more effectively sealed air leakage from pinholes on isolated small intestine and aorta and from incisions on isolated trachea. Neither Az-CH-LA nor its hydrogel showed any cytotoxicity in cell culture tests of human skin fibroblasts, coronar endothelial cells, and smooth muscle cells. These results suggest that the photocrosslinkable chitosan developed here has the potential of serving as a new tissue adhesive in medical use.

Novel CS and CS/ethylene oxide–propylene oxide block copolymer (PEO-PPO) nanoparticles and their potential for the association and controlled release of proteins and vaccines were studied by Calvo et al. (536). The mechanism of protein association was elucidated using several proteins, bovine serum albumin, and tetanus and diphtheria toxoids, and varying the formulation conditions (different pH values and concentrations of PEO-PPO) and the stage of protein incorporation into the nanoparticle formation medium.

The decrease of cholesterol levels in liver and serum and its increase in feces could explain the beneficial effect of including these fibbers in the diet to prevent some currently very frequent diseases (420). Because a high daily consumption of polysaccharidecontaining food is assessed to decrease the risk of cancer of the gastrointestinal system, different types of carbohydrates were investigated for their antimutagenic activity against different standard mutagens. Within the screening pronounced antimutagenic effects were found for xyloglucan and different pectins and pectinlike rhamnogalacturonans against 1-nitropyrene–induced mutagenicity.
