A Preclinical Study on Wound Healing Activity of Lawsonia ulba Linn.
V. Nithya and Anusha Baskar

Abstract:
Lawsonia ulba Linn., is a reputed medicinal plant used in the treatment of various skin diseases in the Indian system of medicine. The objective of the study presented in this article was to evaluate the wound-healing potential of the ethanolic extract. The study was done on Wistar albino rats using excision, and dead space wounds models. The extract of Lawsonia ulba Linn., treated wounds were found to epithelize faster and the rate of wound contraction was significantly increased as compared to control wounds (p<0.01). Wet and dry granulation tissue weights and granulation tissue tensil strength in a dead space wound model also increased at statistically Significant differences at p<0.001 when compared to control. From the results, it may be concluded that, the ethanolic extract of Lawsonia ulba Linn. had greater wound healing activity than the nitrofurazone ointment.
