In vitro Anti-inflammatory activity of Silymarin/Hydroxyapatite/Chitosan Nanocomposites and its cytotoxic effect using Brine shrimp lethality assay

2021 Journal of Population Therapeutics and Clinical Pharmacology  
Silymarin, a bioactive compound, is one of the most prominent drugs used in liver diseases. Chitosan and hydroxyapatite (HAP) are the major materials used employed in many biomedical processes like drug delivery, osteointegration, etc. The nanoparticles and nanocomposites are advanced materials with many biomedical applications in diagnosis and therapeutics. In this study, HAP and chitosan were used as a polymeric material, silymarin as a bioactive compound, and other nanoparticle based
