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.
