Described herein are methods of treating wounds, the method comprising administering to a subject an effective amount of a composition comprising a soluble or derivatized chitosan wherein the soluble or derivatized chitosan when administered contacts the wound, thereby treating the wound.


Described herein are compositions comprising a derivatized polyglucosamine and a small molecule, peptide, or protein and related methods of use, e.g., to deliver a small molecule, peptide, or protein to cells (e.g., cancer cells) or tissues (e.g., mucosal membrane and epithelial membrane), e.g., to treat a disease or condition in a subject.


Described herein are methods of treating a subject that has been or will be exposed to radiation, trauma or shock, the method comprising identifying a subject that has been or will be exposed to radiation, and treating the subject with a compound that treats, reduces the severity or delays the onset of sepsis or reduces the likelihood of mortality in a subject upon administration of a therapeutically effective amount the compound to the subject.


A method of treating a surface, the method comprising contacting (e.g., spraying) an effective amount of a composition comprising a chitosan (e.g., soluble or derivatized chitosan) with the surface, thereby treating the surface. Non-pharmaceutical compositions (e.g., liquid or dry powder compositions) include chitosan (e.g., a soluble or derivatized chitosan). The compounds and compositions described herein are biocompatible (e.g., non-toxic) and/or biodegradable (e.g., eco-friendly). Methods using the compositions described herein include methods of treating a surface (e.g., an inert and/or non-animal surface, e.g., a synthetic or semi-synthetic surface (e.g., cellulose, ceramic, plastic, metal, glass, wood, or stone); or a food or food product surface, the method comprising contacting (e.g., spraying) an effective amount of a composition comprising a chitosan (e.g., a soluble or derivatized chitosan described herein) with the inert and/or non-animal surface, or the food or food product surface, thereby treating the surface.


Described herein are methods of inhibiting the growth of or killing a bacterium in an animal subject, preventing or delaying onset of an infection with a bacterium in an animal subject, preventing or delaying onset of a pathogen mediated disease or disorder in an animal subject, or reducing bacterial load in an animal subject, comprising administering an effective amount of a derivatized chitosan to the animal. Also described herein are preparations comprising a chitosan derivative for administration to an animal.
