Hyaluronic acid is an essential part of connective, epithelial and neural tissues, and contributes to cell proliferation and migration. It is used as a stimulating agent for collagen synthesis and is a common ingredient in skin-care products, a multi-billion dollar industry, as it is believed to be a key factor in fighting the aging process. Hyaluronic Acid: Production, Properties, Application.
Hyaluronan (HA) is among the most important bioactive polymers in mammals, playing a key role in a number of biological functions. In the last decades, it has been increasingly studied as a biomaterial for drug delivery systems, thanks to its physico-chemical features and ability to target and enter certain cells.

The aim of this book is to collect within one volume information on hyaluronan. This polysaccharide has received rapid attention for two reasons: it has important regulative functions within cell biology; and it has become a commercially important product because of its use in ophthalmic surgery and treatment of joint diease.
A number of other practical applications are. Today its official name is hyaluronan, and modern-day research on this polysaccharide continues to grow.
Expertly written by leading scientists in the field, this book provides readers with a broad, yet detailed review of the chemistry of hyaluronan, and the role it plays in human biology and pathology.

(English) In: In:The Chemistry, Biology and Medical Applications of Hyaluronan and its Derivatives.". The medical use of viscous hyaluronan solutions for the treatment of arthritis is called viscosupplementation. The use of the natural, highly purified, high molecular size hyaluronan did not fulfill all the medical needs for elastoviscous fluids.
Therefore, in the mids the development of crosslinked derivatives of hyaluronan began. Hyaluronic Acid: Production, Properties, Application in Biology and Medicine consists of six chapters discussing the various issues of hyaluronic acid research.
In Chapter 1, a historical analysis recounts the discovery and milestones of the research leading to the practical applications of hyaluronan.

A novel protocol to control the molecular degradation of hyaluronic acid (HA) was successfully developed. HA has a different conformational structure in water and in organic solvent, and the carboxyl group of HA is known to be the recognition site of CD44 and hyaluronidase.
Based on these facts, HA was chemically modified in the mixed solvent of water and ethanol by grafting .Hyaluronan and its derivatives has developed very quickly in the last few years from a scientific novelty into an important new material for a diverse range of medical and biomaterial applications.
