Bletilla Striata Polysaccharide as Promising Multifunctional Biomedical Materials

Author(s): Jackson Clive

Bletilla striata polysaccharide (BSP) is a type of natural hydrophilic polymer that has been around for more than 1500 years and is derived from the plant. Due to its potential pharmacological activities, it has recently piqued the interest of researchers working in clinical transformation, material design, and basic research. All the more critically, BSP as promising biomaterials displays particular physicochemical properties (for example solvency, thickness, and film-framing capacity), biocompatibility, biodegradability and primary modifiability. Unmodified BSP is normally made into hydrogels, wipes, micro needles, films and lyophilized wafers alone or formed with different materials, though synthetic changed BSP is basically ready into micelles, microspheres, nanoparticles, nanofibers and natural frameworks. The various BSP-based biomaterials have high research and application values in material science and biomedical engineering and can be widely used in wound healing, targeted drug delivery, and tissue engineering. In this, the exploration is begun with the planning, portrayal and construction properties of BSP. BSP-based biomaterials before and after modification are summarized and emphasized with applications perspectives. Additionally, the ongoing difficulties and future viewpoints of BSP-based biomaterials are likewise featured. This review is intended to aid in the comprehension of natural biopolymers and provide guidelines for expanding the use of BSP as multifunctional materials in biomedicine
