“…There are registers of the use of sutures with linen and gold in Ancient Egypt, as well as the use of cat's intestine in Europe, during the Middle Age 2 . Approximately thousand years ago, the use of mandible of ants for the approximation of the edges of an injury has been reported in the medical Indian text Charaka Sanhita 3 Based on this knowledge, an absorbable surgical clamp (MU9102934-1) has been designed, emulating the mechanics of bite produced by the mandible of the ant Atta laevigata.…”

“…Polysaccharides of microbial origin, such as chitosan, alginate, xanthan gum, and cellulose, are another class of biomaterials that have gained considerable interest for medical use because of their properties, including that they are renewable, biodegradable, and mimic the components of the extracellular matrix, which make them key elements in biological processes (Pires and Moraes, 2015; Pires et al, 2015). Chitosan can be easily recovered from the cell wall of fungi such as A. niger, Rhizopus oryzae, Cunninghamella elegans , and Mucor indicus , among others (Pochanavanich and Suntornsuk, 2002; Franco et al, 2004; Ruholahi et al, 2016; Abdel-Gawad et al, 2017).…”

“…Cellulose synthesized (in abundance) by bacteria such as Gluconacetobacter xylinus (e.g., Huang C. et al, 2016) displays the same polymeric structure of cellulose from plants but is superior in its mechanical properties, purity, and uniformity, allowing the production of higher-quality devices (Pires et al, 2015). These devices include dialysis membranes and scaffolds for tissue engineering (Svensson et al, 2005).…”

“…Diferentes atividades biológicas já foram descritas para a quitosana, como antimicrobiana e estimulante do processo cicatricial. 72,73 Entretanto, no que compete à terapia genética, é a habilidade de interagir com o material genético que torna atrativo o uso da quitosana. Um dos maiores limitantes do emprego da quitosana, não só em formulações para a terapia gênica ocular, mas para outras vias e aplicações, é a dificuldade na caracterização da matéria-prima.…”
