Study of In Vivo Wound Healing Activity of Dyschoriste littoralis Extract in Rats Models
Herbal medicines are promising choice over modern synthetic drugs. They show minimum or no side effects and are considered to be safe. Medicinal plant Dyschoriste littoralis was studied for wound healing activity in induced wounded male rats. This herb was selected after an extensive survey of the folk literature and advice from the practicing physicians of Siddha systems of medicine. This plant is used in indigenous medicine against various health conditions. The objective of the present work is to study the wound healing effects of ethanol extract of D. littoralis on animal models. The results of this study indicate that ethanolic extracts of Dyschoriste littoralis have good potentials for use in wound healing. This report claims the traditional use of the selected medicinal plants against the wound healing activity.
