Abstract : Water soluble hydrogels of alkali metal alginate and glycerine have been found to be excellent wound dressings. The gels dry to an adherent, non-toxic pliable protective film which can be removed by water-washing when desired. The gels are also compatible with medicaments and hence can serve as vehicles or carriers for medicament application to wounds as well as a protective cover.
