DuPont offered to divest its global alginates
business, including all tangible and intangible assets for the sourcing, development, manufacturing, packaging or sale of alginates
Despite these advantages, certain drawbacks of this irreversible hydrocolloid have led to efforts to improve the properties of conventional alginates
The present study was designed to improve the parent strain of Azotobacter vinelandii NRRL-14641 for hyper-production of alginate
by random mutagenesis.
dressings are best suited for pressure and diabetic foot ulcers and venous leg ulcers, post-operative wounds, cavity wounds, traumatic wounds, malignant wounds, pilonidal sinus wounds, partial thickness burns, graft donor sites, and abrasions.
Summary: Urease enzyme was extracted from Apergillus fumigatus and immobilized in calcium alginate
In this context and from the point of using natural and renewable raw materials, alginates
are used as a biosorbent for metal ions.
as a useful natural polymer for microencapsulation and therapeutic applications.
Other studies demonstrated marked reduction in symptom severity scores and gastroesophageal reflux with alginates
compared to the reflux medication Propulsid[R] (cisapride) (21) and to the acid blocker Prilosec[R] (omeprazole).
2002) demonstrated benefits of alginates
to immobilize plant growth promoting bacteria (PGPB) and its benefits to agriculture, highlighting it as one the most compatible polymers with this bacteria, with the ability to protect them against adverse environmental conditions (Yabur et al.
After drying, they were divided into groups and immersed in the solutions of 1% sodium alginate
(10 g 1 [L.
2, 3 and 500 sodium alginate
concentrations were used for production and reusability of immobilized cells for 5 more trials.
Object of study was vegetative analogue of pharmaceutical gelatin: alginate
The researchers found that alginates
containing more of a sugar molecule called guluronate were best at blocking fat digestion.
- chemicals from seaweed - are already used in foods, such as stabilisers in jam and to maintain the head on a pint of beer.
have been used as gelling agents in food and healthcare industries, including in wound dressings, for many years, but the alginate
being studied for the programme has never been used before to combat infectious diseases.
