EXPLORATORY STUDIES ON DIABETIC WOUND HEALING POTENTIAL OF CIPADESSA BACCIFERA (ROTH.) MIQAbstract
Growing burden of degenerative metabolic diseases can be addressed with help of traditional and folkloric medicine. The purpose of this study is to evaluate an ethanolic defatted extract (EDE) of Cipadessa baccifera (CB) leaf for anti-diabetic wound healing activity in male albino Wistar rats. The defatted and non-defatted extracts were prepared using water and ethanol solvent system. They were evaluated for pharmacognostic study, wound healing activity using animal excision and incision models. Antioxidant activity was performed using DPPH assay. Ascorbic acid was used as reference standard for determination of antioxidant activity. The antimicrobial activity was also carried out by disc diffusion and well diffusion method using chloramphenicol as reference standard. The EDE of leaf showed higher total phenolic content. It was found to be 389.2 mg gal/l. These extract showed good DPPH radical scavenging activity, which was found to be 68.75% in comparison with ascorbic acid. This extract also showed a good zone of inhibition with disc diffusion and well diffusion method. On 16th day, the 200 mg/kg EDE treated group showed 95% wound closure while 100 mg/kg treated showed 75% wound closure. The EDE of CB leaf showed prominent antioxidant and anti-microbial activity. It also exhibited potential wound healing activity.
