Assessment of Healing Potential of Formulated Herbal Cream on Burn Wound
The current protocol of the study was planned to assess the healing potential of formulated herbal cream containing different medicinal plant extracts. Formulated herbal cream was containing the methanolic extract of Chenopodium album, Coccinia indica, Momordica dioica, Precitrullus fistulosus and Trichosanthes dioica with cream base. Formulated herbal cream was assessed pharmacologically for healing potential in burn wound model. The formulation showed a significantly higher contraction rate, shortened epithelialization period, better tensile strength and increase in hydroxyproline content in the burn wound model. Thus, it is concluded that formulation has the potential wound healing activity which justifying its use as wound healer.
