Based on the origin, textiles are categorized into natural and synthetic materials. Chitosan is the deacetylated form of chitin. Chitosan is the second most abundant polysaccharide in nature after cellulose, and has been extensively used in agriculture, cosmetics, food and nutrition, environmental protection, and material sciences. This biomaterial is a promising topic of research for future studies concerning biomedical textiles. Chitosan has been studied for a number of useful properties such as biocompatibility, biodegradability, anti-inflammatory, wound healing, antitumor effects and antibacterial properties in most available biomaterials have been tested in different approaches by different groups. Here, the purpose is to mention the application of chitosan, a biopolymer, and chitosan derivatives in medical textiles and purposes.
