Abstract

Bum injuries, trauma, and surgical procedures result in complex skin wounds which can lead to inflammation, infection, and scarring. Management of complex wounds remains a critical challenge for the medical community and effective, localized treatments that provide sustained drug release, are limited. Recent advancements in nanotechnology offer a unique opportunity to deliver therapeutics to wounds and improve healing. The overall goal of our work is to combine non-toxic, biodegradable nanomaterials with therapeutics in order to design a topical drug delivery system for controlled release into skin. In this study we demonstrate the potential of combining solid lipid nanoparticles (SLNs) and bacterial cellulose into a novel system for controlled topical drug delivery.
