Biopolymeric materials containing brown algae polysaccharides

This article describes the use of polymeric systems created on the basis of natural or synthetic polymers. One of the most safe and biocompatible is fucoidan. Therefore, were proposed and developed the idea of creating films based on methylcellulose with fucoidan with the addition of various plasticizers. It was found that surface films affect the healing of wounds, as it causes the ability of the cells adhesion, the adsorption of water molecules. Also was investigated the physical properties of the films with different plasticizers, for example use as a plasticizer of the lactic acid allows to increase the capacity for swelling, as well as increase the ability to retain adsorbed, which is necessary for healing of wounds after burns. The use of glycerin or propylene glycol resulted in a decrease in the degree of swelling, and the absence of the plasticizer contributes to enhancement of the adsorption of water molecules. Data from biological films possess high ability to swell, and therefore not only applicable for the treatment of wounds with lots of exudate, but due to the high holding capacity applicable for low exudative wounds.

Entomology and Applied Science Letters is an international double-blind peer reviewed publication which publishes scientific research & review articles related to insects that contain information of interest to a wider audience, e.g. papers bearing on the theoretical, genetic, agricultural, medical and biodiversity issues. Emphasis is also placed on the selection of comprehensive, revisionary or integrated systematics studies of broader biological or zoogeographical relevance. In addition to full-length research articles and reviews, the journal publishes interpretive articles in a Forum section, Short Communications, and Letters to the Editor. The journal publishes reports on all phases of medical entomology and medical acarology, including the systematics and biology of insects, acarines, and other arthropods of public health and veterinary significance.

Entomology and Applied Science Letters supports the submission of entomological papers that contain information of interest to a wider reader groups e. g. papers bearing on taxonomy, phylogeny, biodiversity, ecology, systematic, agriculture, morphology. The selection of comprehensive, revisionary or integrated systematics studies of broader biological or zoogeographical relevance is also important. Distinguished entomologists drawn from different parts of the world serve as honorary members of the Editorial Board. The journal encompasses all the varied aspects of entomological research.
