CD BioGlyco has professional glycomedicine development teams and first-class carbohydrate-based glycomedicine development platform, which provide customers with unparalleled glycomedicine development services and complete after-sales services.
Animals are one of the important sources of natural polysaccharides. Animal-derived carbohydrate-based glycomedicines play an important role in the fields of pharmacy, medicine, biology, and materials. Chitosan/chitin, chondroitin sulfate, and hyaluronic acid are several major animal polysaccharides. Oligomers from partial acid hydrolysis of chitin and chitosan were recognized for their bioactivity, including hemostatic action, anti-inflammatory effect, antitumoral, antibacterial, and fungicidal properties, eliciting chitinase, and regulating plant growth. Growing evidence reveals the previously less or unperceived functions of chondroitin sulfate, for example being a key molecule of the brain extracellular matrix, regulating the cell adhesion, proliferation and migration during wound healing. In addition, hyaluronic acid is an essential component of the extracellular matrix, mediating cellular signaling, wound repair, morphogenesis, and matrix organization. Therefore, it has become an inevitable trend to increase a deeper understanding of animal-derived carbohydrate-based glycomedicine development.
