Formulation of Different Chitosan Hydrogels for Cartilage Tissue Repair

Research output: Contribution to conferenceOtherpeer-review


Biocompatibility analyses showed that formulated hydrogels were not toxic and didn’t induce apoptosis.Chondrocyte were alive but not proliferative, inflammation and immune responses were observed but undercertain acceptability threshold.The results of this preliminary work suggest that the formulated Chitosan hydrogels are cyto-compatible andinduce chondrocyte differentiation. The here tested synthesis process generated hydrogels, which arepotentially useful for cartilage regenerative processes. Further mechanical characterizations are in progress.
