CHITOSAN: A REVIEW ON ITS VARIED NOVEL THERAPEUTIC AND INDUSTRIAL APPLICATIONS
Chitosan and its nanoparticles, which are being studied extensively to understand their varied and unique functional properties, have attracted considerable interest due to their biological activities and potential applications in the food, pharmaceutical and environmental industries. This review focuses on the biological activities of Chitosan and its nanoparticles, based on othersâ€™ latest research results, including antitumor and anticancer effects, antimicrobial, wound healing activities, food preservative and so on, which are all correlated with their structural and physiological properties. The objective of this review is to give in-depth and comprehensive insights into the functionality of chitosan and its nanoparticles and a study of their inherent industrial and therapeutic applications.
Key words- Chitosan, nanoparticles, wound healing, antitumor, antimicrobial
