As blood coagulation is a prelude for wound healing, a systemic haemocoagulant (Botropase) and local procoagulants (thrombin and fibrin) were evaluated on physical (wound breaking strength, wound half-closure time and period of epithelization), biochemical (granuloma-hydroxyproline and hexosamine) and histological attributes of healing wounds in albino rats. Botropase prompted all phases of tissue repair. Thrombin delayed wound contraction whereas fibrin had no discernable action. The findings that proco~gulants modify healing process has bearing on their surg;cal use.
