In folklore the roots of this plant were used in treating wounds hence the main aim was to evaluate the wound healing potential
of Eriolaena hookeriana Wt. & Arn. Wound healing activity was studied in two types of model in rat?s viz. excision and incision.
In case of the excision wound model parameters like wound contraction and period of epithelization was studied while in incision
wound model, tensile strength of the wound was measured. In both the models treatment of wound with ointment containing 5%
(w/w) extracts showed good wound healing activity (p<0.01) in comparison with control. The results of present study suggest that
extracts of Eriolaena hookeriana Wt. & Arn. Possess potent wound healing activity justifying its use in folklore.
