In this study we present a novel silver complex of hyaluronan-lipoate (SHLS12) in a gel-state form. NMR analysis, conductometry and elemental analysis demonstrated stable non-covalent interactions between silver ions and the polysaccharide-lipoate backbone, whereas rheological investigations confirmed its gel-like physical-chemical behavior. Biological studies showed the ability of SHLS12 to exert a straightforward activity against different bacterial strains grown in sessile/planktonic state. The biocompatibility was also proved toward two eukaryotic cell lines. By considering both its ability to preserve antibacterial properties when exposed to the serum protein BSA and its low susceptibility to be degraded by hyaluronidase enzyme, this novel complex may be considered as a promising biomaterial for future in vivo applications.

Abstract

In this study we present a novel silver complex of hyaluronan-lipoate (SHLS12) in a gel-state form. NMR analysis, conductometry and elemental analysis demonstrated stable non-covalent interactions between silver ions and the polysaccharide-lipoate backbone, whereas rheological investigations confirmed its gel-like physical-chemical behavior. Biological studies showed the ability of SHLS12 to exert a straightforward activity against different bacterial strains grown in sessile/planktonic state. The biocompatibility was also proved toward two eukaryotic cell lines. By considering both its ability to preserve antibacterial properties when exposed to the serum protein BSA and its low susceptibility to be degraded by hyaluronidase enzyme, this novel complex may be considered as a promising biomaterial for future in vivo applications.
