PHYTOCHEMICAL STUDY AND EVALUATION OF WOUND HEALING POTENTIAL OF CRUDE LEAVE EXTRACTS OF OROXYLUM INDICUM (L.) VENT IN WISTAR RATSAbstract
The present study was carried out to evaluate the wound healing potential of different extracts of Oroxylum indicum leave in two different types of wound models in albino rats viz., incision and excision, and compare the effects with povidine iodine ointment which is used as standard drug. Among all the extract, the ethanolic extract at a dose of (250 mg/kg) possesses significant increase in wound contraction and formation of scar in excision wound model. The extract showed significant increase in the breaking strength of resutured incision wound as compared to control group (p<0.05). The result of the present study indicate that ethanolic extract of O. indicum has more significant wound healing property than the other two extracts in excision and incision wound model.
