Became a method of healing wounds without scars
A group of Chinese scientists created a gel based on silk protein, which can heal wounds without leaving scars.
According to the journal Biomaterial Science, the researchers used sericin which in large quantities contained in the silk fibers. After extraction of silk professionals have used ultraviolet light and photoinitiator. This is required for cross connection chains of the protein substances.
The result was obtained a gel that can grow to the cells. However, he is virtually immune response, inhibits inflammation and helps to develop new blood vessels. In the end, at the site of damage scar tissue instead of growing new skin without scars.
In addition, scientists developed the drug has antiseptic properties, preventing bacteria to get into the wound. For this reason, it is quicker to take.
