Wound Healing Potential of Aloe vera Leaf Gel Studied in Experimental Rabbits

S. Subramanian , D. Sathish Kumar and P. Arulselvan

Abstract:
The objective of this study was to evaluate the wound healing potential of Aloe vera leaf gel in experimental rabbits. The ethanolic extract in the form of an ointment (10%) was used for evaluating the wound healing potential in an excision wound model. The prophylactic effect elicited by the extract in terms of wound contraction and related biochemical parameters strongly support the healing and sealing properties of Aloe vera leaf gel.
