Wound healing potential of medicinal plants with their screening models: A comprehensive review

  • sukhbir Kaur

Abstract

A wound is a breakage in tissue continuity that can be produced by physical, chemical and thermal damage. It is a generally called as physical injury that cause opening and breaking of skin. Healing of chronic cutaneous wound is a big problem and it involves the restoration of continuity after wounding. Wounds are treated with various medicinal herbs or their extracts. Plants provide various remedies to mankind and herbal plants are nature’s gift used to treat wound with much lesser side effects. Some of those plants are Acalypha langiana, Tinospora cardifolia, Tragia involucrata, Napoleona Imperialis, Prosopis cineria, Lawsonia alba,Ginkgo biloba, Aloe vera, Catharanthus roseus. This review discusses about the wound healing potential of herbal plants and provides overview on wound healing problems and solution.
