Carboxymethylcellulose sodium is a viscous polysaccharide that belongs to a high molecular weight category. It has mucoadhesive property and is used during eye surgery. Carboxymethylcellulose sodium promotes re-epithelialization of the epithelial cells in corneal wounds. It is useful for the study of attached cell and three-dimensional tissue culture models.
Carboxymethylcellulose sodium has been used as a vehicle for tamoxifen citrate, sorafenib, and savolitinib. It has also been used as a component of serum-free medium (SFM) for the suspension of human umbilical vein endothelial spheroids.
