Efficacy of neem (Azadirachta indica) leaf extracts in wound healing in animals

Author(s):
Smriti, Kumari N and Sharma VK
Abstract:
A total of 30 clinical wounds present on various body locations in animals were treated using different Neem leaf extract formulations in order to evaluate their wound healing potential. The formulations comprised of the aqueous and alcoholic extracts. The qualitative assessment of wound healing was done on the basis of clinical, histopathological and histo-chemical observations. The overall healing of wounds was better and faster in all the treatment groups compared to the control. Amongst the treatment groups, early regression of inflammatory signs and higher percent contraction were observed with the alcoholic extract in comparison to the aqueous extract treated wounds. Current research could be continued further with breed age and sex specific experimental animals to find the effect of these factors on efficacy of Neem in wound healing.
