Chitin is widely distributed in nature and is often present in crustaceans’ exoskeleton. Chitosan is the deacetylated derivative of chitin. Based on previous investigations, chitin-based scaffolds are reported to have beneficial effects on nerve regeneration by combination of many different substrates; bioactive molecules cell therapy can improve injured peripheral nerves. Here, we mentioned combinational therapy of chitin-based scaffolds in peripheral nerve injuries.
