Polyelectrolyte complex materials consisting of antibacterial and cell-supporting layers

Journal Article


Abstract


  • The characterization of a polyelectrolyte complex material comprised of two biopolymers, a

    chitosan upper layer and a gellan gum under layer, is reported. It is shown that the upper layer

    of chitosan with incorporated levofloxacin displays an antibacterial activity, while the under

    layer of a gellan gum/TiO2 composite supports the growth

    of fibroblastic cells.
