Background: The aim of the study was to investigate the effects of morin on skin breaking strength, hydroxyproline, lysyl oxidase, DNA and RNA content of experimentally inflicted wounds in rats. Methods: This study was performed on albino rats of either sex at the Central Animal Research Facility (CARF), Manipal University. Results: Morin showed signifi cant wound contraction on day 7 as compared to control with mean closure of 47.44 ± 6.07 % in excision wound model. Granulation tissue breaking strength was signifi cantly increased (p < 0.05) in the morin treated group with 180.2 ± 7.94 g when compared to control at 151.2 ± 6.99 g. There was a signifi cant increase in hydroxyproline content with the morin treated group when compared to control with 3.41 ± 0.33 μ g/mg of granulation tissue. Similarly, the wound parameters were improved with the morin treated group in dexamethasone delayed healing. Conclusions: Our results suggest that morin treatment accelerates the healing process delayed by concurrent use of steroids.
