Advanced Wound Dressing Material
Scientists from the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Kanpur, have developed an advanced, biodegradable, nonimmunogenic wound dressing material based on agarose (a natural polymer derived from seaweed agar) and by adding several additive molecules like iodine and citric acid.
This dressing material will help in the treatment of infected diabetic wounds and patients suffering from chronic wounds. This indigenously developed dressing is cost-effective.
