Conversion of dermal proteins of an Algerian camel to an antimicrobial agent for wound healing
The aim of this study was the conversion of the camelin dermal proteins as a natural product that has an antimicrobial power used for tissue repair and wound healing. After dehairing, fleshings, deliming the animal tissues (Camelin) and purification, we supplied and fixed the essential oils of Lavandula officinalis, Eucalyptus globules and Eugenia caryophyllata. The product obtained is a spongy material communicating with open voids between the fibers. With a light yellow color, it has a remarkable antibacterial power and a very strong inhibitory activity on all the bacterial strains tested whose average diameter of the inhibition zones exceeds 15mm. It is also characterized by a smell which can be aromatic, pleasant and spicy or fresh and spicy depending on the essential oil used.
