Abstract:
The influence of roots and leaf extracts of Jasminum grandiflorum was studied for its wound healing activity using excision wound model. The roots and leaves of Jasminum grandiflorum were extracted with alcohol 90%, were subjected to phytochemical investigation. The root and leaf extracts were screened for wound healing activity. The animals were divided in to four groups in excision wound model, controls were treated with normal saline, standard were treated with Betadine and the experimental groups were treated with root and leaf extracts of Jasminum grandiflorum till complete epithelisation. The leaf extract treated wounds were found to epithelise faster as compared to control group. Leaf extract treated rats exhibited 61.346% reduction in the wound area when compared to control 55.72%. The demonstration of increased rate of wound contraction findings suggests the use of Jasminum grandiflorum leaf extract in the management of wound healing.
