Formulatuon and Evaluation of Neomycin Patches for Wound Healing Activity
The purpose of this project work to develop a antibacterial patch that may stick to the wounds, providing protection against bacterial infection without disturbing the healthy tissues present around the wound. As there is no external agent that can heal the wound, as body has its own wound healing mechanism, only thing that can be done is protecting the wounds against bacteria so healing can be fast. Here is film is prepared using neomycin antibacterial agent and using polymer gelatin that too has anti bacterial effect. The neomycin patch will be biocompatible material without given any side effect to the applied natural systems. The incorporation of PEG with gelatin has the aim of developing a material that would have good mechanical strength, be thermally stable on human body, and have good swelling property and effective water absorption capacity. The prepared will enhance both the rapidity of healing including reducing infection, pain, and scarring. An improved dressing also will reduce cost by improving the rate of wound healing and shorter the duration the treatment.
