Biopolymer researchers have advanced new strategies to improve the properties of wound dressings over the last decade which is becoming one of the most swiftly growing fields in the biomedical and pharmacy. The advantages of these biopolymers (particularly chitosan) is that, they can be easily processed into different forms which needs to be for different biomedical applications. Chitosan is the well-known natural biopolymer which is safe to be use, biocompatible and biodegradable in nature. This review provides an outline of the chitosan properties and its biomedical properties toward applications in anti-inflammatory and wound caring management.
