Abstract

Platelet lysate (PL) was loaded into dressings based on chitosan glutamate (CSG) low and high molecular weight, sericin (Ser), and glycine (Gly). A synergic effect of Ser and PL on fibroblast proliferation was proved in vitro. Two different PL loading approaches were considered: the first provided to prepare dressings by freeze-drying a mixture of PL and CSG/Gly/Ser solution, the second approach consisted in the extemporarily loading of PL in the CSG/Gly/Ser freeze-dried dressings. As for the first approach, PL loading did not produce any variation in dressing mechanical properties. Such dressings absorbed a high amount (about 8-fold of dry weight) of phosphate-buffered saline (fluid mimicking wound exudate), forming a gel with pseudoplastic and elastic properties. Platelet-derived growth factor AB assay indicated that neither freeze-drying nor the excipients alter PL growth factor content. As for the second approach, mechanical and rheological properties of the gel formed upon PL absorption enabled to choose a PL loading of about 90 μL/cm2. Upon contact with fibroblasts, all PL loaded formulations increased the number not only of viable cells but also of those in the proliferative phase. Histological studies effected on human skin strips pointed out the positive effect of PL loaded dressings on dermal matrix reconstruction.
