Many plants have been recorded to be useful in wound healing. In the present study, Callophyllum inophyllum and Hydnocarpus alpina were evaluated for their wound healing property on incision and excision wound models on Albino Wistar rats. Treatment with Callophyllum inophyllum and Hydnocarpus alpina promoted wound contraction and reduced the time for closure showing better healing potential compared to marketed formulation Neosporin H. Results reveal better healing with test formulations showing faster epithelization and fibrosis.
