[automatically translated] Subject of this invention is a method and the related production technology for the preparation of wire from multifunctional suture possessing antibiotic properties and / or wound-healing and / or antimicrobial modulated in function of the preparation conditions. The wires may have such properties individually or simultaneously. In particular, it was developed a technology that provides for the incorporation of a molten antibiotic agent and / or healing and / or antimicrobial agent during the preparation of suture threads. The spinning process is in line and by means of a modulation of the amount of substance, the stretching conditions (isothermal and non-isothermal), it is possible to adjust the final diameter achieved, the mechanical strength and the release of the required amount of substance,
