Abstract
Chitosan is the only natural basic polysaccharide detected so far, it is a natural polymer chitin to take off the acetylation. Chitin sources rich and content, production capacity of about 1013 ~ 1014 kg of the nature, it is the second largest polysaccharide next to cellulose material. Because not only chitin has three biological functions of decreasing hematic fat, blood pressure and blood sugar, but also has an effect of inhibiting of cancer and anticancer, tumor cells metastasis and improves human immunity and protect liver detoxification. Especially suitable for disease such as diabetes, kidney disease, high blood pressure, obesity etc. In favor of preventing cancer cell lesion and fractionation radiation treatment of tumor diseases. So this article from the characteristics of chitosan, application, preparation of modified and its in clinical application of these four aspects were summarized with a deeper understanding of the biological functions and the research progress of chitosan.
