Objective: To evaluate the effect of Sauropus androgynous on wound healing. Materials and methods: Excision and incision wound models were used to evaluate the wound healing activity of 5% Sauropus androgynous on wistar rats of either sex. Results: Sauropus androgynousextract promoted the wound healing activity significantly in both wound models studied, while no action was seen with ointment base. It augmented wound contraction significantly (P<0.001), re-epithelization very significantly (P<0.0001) and increase in wound breaking strength (P<0.001). Histological evaluation of wound tissue showed abundant collegenation, fibroblast and lesser macrophages in animal treated with 5% Sauropus androgynous when compared to control and ointment base. Conclusion: Extract of Sauropus androgynouspromotes wound healing activity.
