Gellan gum-based hydrogels have been proposed for biomedical applications including bone repair and cartilaginous tissue regeneration. This polysaccharide has the ability to form stable gels without the use of harsh reagents and offers excellent gel stability and flexibility. Gellan gum can function as a minimally invasive injectable system, gelling inside the body in situ under physiological conditions and efficiently adapting to the defect site. This work presents an overview of the recent advances in the research on gellan gum for biomedical applications.

Keywords: Gellan Gum; Hydrogel; Cartilage Regeneration
