Beneficial effects of a novel shark-skin collagen dressing for the promotion of seawater immersion wound healing

Seawater immersion can exacerbate wounds due to its low temperature, high sodium content, hyperosmolality and large microorganism population. Rarely dressings have been reported for the treatment of seawater-immersed wounds, but common medical dressings have little effect on the prevention of seawater immersion. In this study, an acid-soluble shark skin collagen (SSC) was isolated from the skin of blue sharks and a shark skin collagen sponge (SSCS) was developed.
