Abstract

Chitosan is a kind of biodegradable materials with excellent biocompatibility. This article interpreted the progress and outlook of using chitosan related materials in nerve regeneration from the following points: the positive charges on chitosan, its ability to adsorb proteins, the specific adhesion of nerve cells on chitosan, and the surface roughness, aperture and surface topography of chitosan.
