An anti-inflammatory system was created to reduce the inflammation and fibrotic scarring caused by a subcutaneous biosensor. This system was comprised of Titania nanotubes, chitosan hydrogel, and drug-releasing nanoparticles, and was aimed at reducing the adhesion and activation of macrophages. Testing suggests that the system reduces macrophage activity, and therefore the subsequent fibrotic encapsulation, in comparison to Ti foil, TiO2 nanotubes, and chitosan hydrogel acting in isolation.
