Main achievements
  • methods have been developed for the use of modified polysaccharides with various types of substituents and functional groups that have biological activity or are suitable for use in carrier polymers that provide prolongation of therapeutic action and targeted delivery of a drug to a target organ;
  • methods have been developed for the production of gel-forming phosphates of polysaccharides, characterized by a wide range of mono- and dibasic phosphoric acid groups, porous structure, high water-absorbing capacity, as well as the presence of antiproliferative activity against HeLa tumor cells;
  • a resource-saving and safe method has been developed to provide cationic starch for in-bulk sizing of paper and cardboard, to accelerate the dehydration of the paper pulp and increase the strength characteristics of the paper sheet;
  • mechanisms of sorption interactions of oxidized polysaccharides with aliphatic amines, amino acids, enzymes, antibiotics and cytostatics have been established; scientifically grounded approaches to the adsorption of drugs on oxidized cellulose have been developed to obtain bioabsorbable combined drugs with prolonged action;
  • methods for the immobilization of a number of anticancer drugs on gel-forming phosphate polysaccharides have been developed, a certain effect of the adsorption interaction mechanism on the release rate of cytostatic agents in biological media, the duration of the antipiferative effect, dosage forms have been synthesized as a means for use as chemotherapy for brain and stomach tumors.
