Abstract

In this paper, alginate-pectin blend particles loaded with Annexin A1 derived peptide Ac2-26 as an in situ forming dressing was successfully developed for wound repair applications. High mannuronic (M) content alginate and amidated pectin blend have been used to encapsulate Ac2-26 in order to enhance stability of the peptide at room temperature and to control its release through the in situ formed gel. Ac2-26 recovery and FTIR studies suggests chemical interactions between peptide and polysaccharides blend able to improve the encapsulation efficiency of Ac2-26 into the polymer matrix and control its release, till 48 h. In vitro wound healing assay on HaCaT cells highlights the ability of Ac2-26 to significantly accelerate wound healing compared to unloaded particles, with complete closure of the wound model in 24 h. Therefore, all these results suggest that Ac2-26 loaded submicrometric in situ gelling powders could be a promising wound dressing to improve wound care armamentarium.
