The preparation of collagen scaffold impregnated with silver sulphadiazine (SSD) loaded alginate micropheres is capable of delivering the drug in a controlled manner, thus, reducing frequency of dressing change and making wound assessment and management easier.

Another product is collagen based wound dressing material to deliver ciprofloxacin, an antibiotic.
