A novel antimicrobial/anti-inflammatory coating developed by Protip in collaboration with University of Strasbourg, INSERM and University of Heidelberg has been covered widely by national and international press. Polyarginine/ Hyaluronic acid based polyelectrolyte multilayers have not only an antibacterial activity but also they attenuate the pro-inflammatory cytokine release by human macrophages.
