Potential Biomedical Applications of Marine Polysaccharides from Algae

There is a contemporary trend toward bioactive natural goods that can be used in a variety of industries, including pharmaceuticals, biomedical products, cosmetics, and food. This has shifted the focus of research to marine organisms, such as macroalgae and microalgae. Polysaccharides of marine origin are one type of these biochemical compounds that have already demonstrated a number of important properties, including anticoagulant and/or antithrombotic, immunomodulatory ability, antitumor and cancer prevention, antilipidaemic and hypoglycaemic, antibiotics, anti-inflammatory, and antioxidant properties, making them promising bioactive products and biomaterials with a wide range of applications. Their qualities are primarily determined by their structure and physicochemical properties, which are dependent on the organism that produces them. Algal polysaccharides can be employed in controlled medication delivery, wound treatment, and regenerative therapy in the biomedical area. The biological applications of marine polysaccharides from algae will be the subject of this editorial.
