Asparagus racemosus is a well known plant of medicinal value, with proved antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and immunomodulatory properties. Antioxidants are reported to enhance wound healing. The present study is aimed to investigate the wound healing profile of Asparagus racemosus on incision and excision wound models in rats. The aqueous extract of the roots of Asparagus racemosus is made use of to study the effect on wound healing in albino rats using incision and excision wound models in 200mg/kg and 400mg/kg orally for 10 to22 days. The skin breaking strength, epithelialisation period, wound contraction rate were estimated. The extract showed significant improvement in the epithelialisation period, remarkable enhancement of wound contraction rate, increased skin breaking strength in the test groups suggesting the possible utility of this plant to enhance wound healing
