Paranthyadi Taila has been mentioned in classics in the context of mandali visha chikitsa for the treatment of the wound caused by the bite of mandala sarpa. It has also mentioned that it is also a better choice of treatment for healing of any types of wounds. Wound is disease according to system of Ayurveda & vrana shodhana and ropana methods have been mentioned as a line of treatment. Three groups (control, standard and trial) had been taken for the study, each group containing 6 rats. In the trial group, Paranthyadi taila was applied over the wounded area. In excision wound model, percentage of wound contraction and period of epithelisation were the parameters for the study and this was achieved by using Planimetry (Technique developed by Mortone and Mallone). In Paranthyadi taila applied group more of mature collagen, good granulation tissue formation and profuse number of adnexia especially hair follicles in different stage of development were observed. This clearly shows that quality of wound healing process is enhanced by its application.
