Silica-based ordered mesoporous materials are very attractive matrices to prepare smart depot systems for several kinds of therapeutic agents. This work focuses on the well-known SBA-15 mesoporous silica and lysozyme, an antimicrobial protein. In order to improve the bioadhesion properties of SBA-15 particles, the effect of hyaluronic acid (HA) functionalization on lysozyme adsorption was investigated. SBA-15 samples having high (H-SBA) and low (L-SBA) levels of functionalization were analyzed...[Show more]
