Polymer fibres containing methylcellulose, bioactive glasses and Manuka honey for novel wound dressings

Our new publication entitled: “Production of a novel poly(ɛ-caprolactone)-methylcellulose electrospun wound dressing by incorporating bioactive glass and Manuka honey” is online in “Journal of Biomedical Materials Research Part B: Applied Biomaterials”. The paper (OpenAccess) focuses on the fabrication of PCL-methylcellulose based electrospun fiber mats crosslinked with Manuka honey and containing additionally bioactive glass particles. The electrospun fiber mats showed suitable physical and chemical properties as wound dressings and cell biology tests indicate the great potential of the electrospun fiber mats by releasing Manuka honey  and biologically active ions from the bioactive glass [1]. *
