Abstract

The present study was performed to evaluate the wound healing activity of 10 indigenous plants (Jasminum grandiflorum, Azadirachta indica, Lawsonia inermis, Nerium indicum, Vinca rosea, Marsedinia volubilis, Tabernaemontana corymbosa, Calotropis gigantea, Tectona grandis and Andrographis paniculata) in albino rats. Wound breaking strength in incision wound model, epethelization period and percent wound contraction in excision wound model were studied. Significant result was found in Calotropis gigantea, Tectona grandis and Andrographis paniculata treated rats. Further screening studies were done using the alcoholic extracts of these three plants. Out of three plants screened, Andrographis paniculata has shown significant results which shows that it possesses a definite prohealing action.
