Background: Derived from polyose, chitosan is an outstanding natural linear polysaccharide
comprised of random arrangement of β-(1-4)-linked D-Glucosamine and N-acetyl-DGlucosamine
Objective: Researchers have been using chitosan as a network forming or gelling agent with economically
available, present polyose, low immunogenicity, biocompatibility, non-toxicity, biodegradability,
protects against secretion from irritation and don’t suffer the danger of transmission animal
Methods: Furthermore, recent studies gear up the chitosan used in the development of various biopharmaceutical
formulations, including nanoparticles, hydrogels, implants, films, fibers, etc.
Results: These formulations produce potential activities as antimicrobials, cancer treatment, medical
aid, and wound healing, controlled unleash device or drug trigger retarding device and 3DBiomedical
Conclusion: The present article discusses the development of various drug formulations utilizing
chitosan as biopolymers for the repairing of broken tissues and healing in case of wound infection.
