What is it about?

Being the most versatile biopolymer, chitooligosaccharide/chitosan oligosaccharide (COS) has been extensively studied for a range of exceptional biological activities and potential developments of novel medical devices and systems in biomedical and pharmaceutical fields. While possessing intrinsic biocompatibility, mucoadhesiveness, and non-toxicity it gained more interests in the biomedical development of novel systems, devices, and pharmaceutical formulations. The bioactive relativity of chitosan and COS are of highly significant and thus explored in this paper while highlighting its multiple biological activities and promising biomedical applications.
