Role of Medicinal Plants in Wound Healing

Badri Prakash Nagori and Renu Solanki

Wounds are a major cause of physical disabilities. Wound healing consists of orderly progression of a series of events that establish the integrity of the damaged tissue. Normal wound healing can be adversely affected by many factors. If the healing fails to progress in the usual stepwise manner then it may lead to development of chronic wound. Many medicinal plants are found useful in treating wounds. This study describes role of Alternanthera sessilis, Morinda citrifolia, Lycopodium serratum, Sesamum indicum, Catharanthus roseus, Cecropia peltata, Euphorbia hirta, Ginkgo biloba, Clerodendrum serratum, Pterocarpus santalinus, Lawsonia alba, Napoleona imperialis, Kaempferia galangal, Radix paeoniae, Prosopis cineraria and Trigonella foenum-graecum in wound healing. A review of some patents on herbal products for wound treatment is provided to through light on the recent technical advancements in this area.
