Chitosan is a natural product that is produced commercially through the deacetylation of chitin, which is found in the exoskeleton of crustaceans. It has been suggested that chitosan has a...
A randomized clinical trial that aims to study the effect of chitosan nanoparticles (CS-np) versus sodium hypochlorite as a root canal irrigant on postoperative pain and antibacterial acti...
It is well known that Chitosan oligosaccharide is low molecular weight and water soluble and chitosan oligosaccharide has been shown to reduce blood cholesterol and blood pressure, increas...
This study will examine the utility of chitosan for reduction of blood or tissue levels of AGEs in patients with prostate cancer who are clinically stable on androgen-deprivation therapy.
The "dry eye syndrome" DES is a highly prevalent ocular disease, in particular in the elderly population. One mainstay of therapy for patients suffering from DES is the use of topically ad...
This study aimed to evaluate in vitro the antimicrobial effect of a bioadhesive chitosan-based oral membrane with chlorhexidine for local treatment of infections in the oral tissues. Five oral membran...
Since the application of chitosan magnetic cationic microspheres in brain drug delivery by Gallo in 1993, chitosan has been extensively studied in brain drug delivery. As the only natural alkaline pol...
Actually, the most common cancer in women is the breast cancer which is the second most widespread cancer overall. In 2018, there were over two million new cases of women breast cancer. Particularly, ...
Novel chitosan-quinoline nanoparticles as anticancer drug nanocarriers were prepared using 2-chloro-3-formylquinoline and 3-formylquinolin-2(1H)-one as non-toxic modifying agents via oil-in-water nano...
In this study, fucoidan/chitosan nanoparticles were developed for the topical delivery of methotrexate towards the treatment of skin-related inflammatory diseases. Based on the fucoidan/chitosan (F/C)...
A linear polysaccharide of beta-1->4 linked units of ACETYLGLUCOSAMINE. It is the second most abundant biopolymer on earth, found especially in INSECTS and FUNGI. When deacetylated it is called CHITOSAN.
Deacetylated CHITIN, a linear polysaccharide of deacetylated beta-1,4-D-glucosamine. It is used in HYDROGEL and to treat WOUNDS.
Antimony complex where the metal may exist in either the pentavalent or trivalent states. The pentavalent gluconate is used in leishmaniasis. The trivalent gluconate is most frequently used in schistosomiasis.
Nanometer-sized particles that are nanoscale in three dimensions. They include nanocrystaline materials; NANOCAPSULES; METAL NANOPARTICLES; DENDRIMERS, and QUANTUM DOTS. The uses of nanoparticles include DRUG DELIVERY SYSTEMS and cancer targeting and imaging.
A dental specialty concerned with the maintenance of the dental pulp in a state of health and the treatment of the pulp cavity (pulp chamber and pulp canal).
