Recently, we told you about ITMO researchers discovering nanofibers based on hyaluronic acid. This time, together with Petr Snetkov, the author of the paper and a PhD student at the Faculty of Applied Optics, we will tell you what hyaluronic acid actually is, why it is interesting, and how it can be applied in medicine and bioengineering.
Researchers from the International Scientific and Research Institute of Bioengineering are the first to obtain nanofiber based on hyaluronic acid with introduced curcumin and usnic acid, natural biologically active substances. Such nanofibers can be used to create wound dressings for treatment of melanomas, burns, and ulcers.
