This work was aimed at investigating a series of chitosan films obtained from chitosan, chitosan-phosphate, chitosan-phosphate-d-(+)raffinose or chitosan-phosphate-d-(+)sucrose solutions to preliminarily select a suitable biomaterial for developing a cell substrate for tissue engineering. The prepared films were characterized in terms of physicochemical properties (FT-IR, XRD, optical microscopy, wettability, water absorption, and tensile stress) and effects on proliferation of different types of human cells (endothelial, HUVEC; fibroblast, WI-38).The obtained results indicated that the presence of sucrose or raffinose at high concentration along with phosphate salts in the chitosan film-forming solution affords smooth, amorphous and highly hydrophilic materials in the form of soft and elastic film with optimal cytocompatibility.Owing to improved physicochemical and mechanical properties as well as affinity for differentiated human cells, these novel chitosan films appear as promising candidate biomaterials for tissue regeneration and repair.The major finding is the possibility to improve the biocompatibility of chitosan films by simply modifying their solid state characteristics.
