Project Description:

In our previous study, using BC produced from Kombucha culture confirmed that the rate of the wound healing process could be enhanced. We aim to further enhance the wound healing process by incorporating probiotics into the bacterial cellulose matrix and evaluating its effect on the wound healing process. Some probiotics can inhibit the growth of pathogenic bacteria that cause infection.
