Abstract

In this paper, for the first time, hydrogels containing Annexin A1 N-terminal derived peptide, Ac2-26, as a novel dressing were successfully developed for dermal wound repair application. High mannuronic (M) content alginate and low molecular weight chitosan have been used as hydrogel carrier. Peptide recovery analyses, FTIR studies and molecular modelling highlighted chemical interactions between peptide and hydrogel polymers. Ac2-26 resulted entrapped into chitosan hydrogel matrix that prevented its release, whereas such interaction in alginate hydrogel slowed down peptide diffusion enabling its sustained release till 72 h. In vivo wound healing studies conducted on mice dorsal wounds indicate that after the 9th day of post wounding Ac2-26/alginate hydrogels could significantly accelerate wound healing, with complete closure of the wound on day 14th. Therefore, these results suggest that the developed of Ac2-26 high M content alginate hydrogel could be a promising wound dressing with potential application in dermal wound healing.
