Carica papaya L. incorporated nanofibrous scaffold as a potential wound dressing

Abstract:

Chronic wound care remains an issue of paramount clinical importance, and an area for entrepreneurial development. The fruit and leaves of the Carica papaya Linn tree possess proteolytic enzymes (papain and chymopapain), various phytochemicals including flavonoids, and Vitamin C that confer proteolytic, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and antimicrobial properties, in addition to promoting collagen synthesis.
