Scientists at the Institute of Chemical-Energy Technologies in Biisk, in the Altay region in South Siberia, have unveiled their new bacterial biocompatible cellulose which could be used to replace damaged living tissues in the human body, Rossiiskaya Gazeta reported. According to Vera Budaeva, the head of a bioconversion lab, the new project ?is very important to people when it comes to treating burns and wounds on the skin and in other tissues.? She believes the biocompatible material could be used to ?make blood vessels and cartilages.? The bacterial cellulose looks like a very fine fabric. Its fiber is no more than five nanometers in diameter. Ms. Budaeva claims there?s ?a large number? of companies in the Altay region that could undertake to start making this unique fabric. Most of those operate in the Altay biopharmaceutical cluster...
