General information

Name of the project:   Biotechnology of new materials

Goals and objectives

Research directions: Synthesis and study of biomaterials, developing products for biomedicine

Project objective: Creating a scientific basis for application of biodestructible polymers of set structure in biomedical technologies and experimental justification of their application

The practical value of the study

Scientific results:

We have developed products for medicine on the basis of biodegradable polymer materials of natural origin. A comprehensive research of the physical and chemical properties of biopolymers belonging to the class of polyhydroxyalkanoates Cupriavidus necator B-10646 has been conducted. The bacterial cellulose Komagataeibacter xylinus В-12068 was also researched. Both substances are synthesized by the Laboratory for the use in biomedical engineering. We have researched various aspects of the biological safety and biocompatibility of materials of various compositions, trends of biodegradation in various biological systems, including when introduced to the organism with various localizations of implantation. A comprehensive assessment of the functional properties of experimental samples of biodegradable polymer products for various applications in medicine has been conducted. The trends of reactions of cells of various types upon direct contact with samples of medical products of various types have been stilted. Our researchers have demonstrated the possibility of depositing various compounds with good indicators in terms of the efficiency of inclusion, yields as well as size distributions and zeta potentials of carrier particles into a polymer matrix; we have characterized  the biological, physical and mechanical properties of film, electrostatic formation, granulate, porous blocks, and other 3D samples.   

Implemented results of research:

The use of wound dressings based on the bacterial cellulose Komagataeibacter xylinus В-12068 for the treatment of chronic wounds against the background of chronic venous insufficiency in the form of limited clinical testing on the basis of Krasnoyarsk State Medical University named after professor Valentin F. Voyno-Yasenetskiy.
