In recent years, the scientific community has undertaken research on plant extracts, searching for compounds with pharmacological activities that can be used in diverse fields of medicine. Calendula officinalis L. is known to have antioxidant, anti‐inflammatory, antibacterial, and wound healing properties when used to treat skin burns. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to analyze the effects of C. officinalis on the initial phase of Achilles tendon healing. Wistar rats were separated in…

Acmella oleracea extract increases collagen content and organization in partially transected tendons
TLDR
Topical application of 20% A. oleracea ointment increased the molecular organization and content of collagen, thus indicating a potential application in tendon repair.
Use of Some Asteraceae Plants for the Treatment of Wounds: From Ethnopharmacological Studies to Scientific Evidences
TLDR
It is suggested that Asteraceae plants represent important sources of compounds that may act as new and efficient healing products.
Green Tea and Glycine Modulate the Activity of Metalloproteinases and Collagen in the Tendinitis of the Myotendinous Junction of the Achilles Tendon
TLDR
Green tea and glycine modulated the inflammatory process and induced the synthesis of the elements involved in the post‐lesion recovery of the tissue, indicating that each region of the inflamed tendon can exhibit different responses during the treatment and therefore, modify its extracellular matrix components to facilitate recovery and repair.

TLDR
This review is to summarize the botanical drugs in traditional Chinese medicine with wound healing properties and the underlying mechanisms of them, which can contribute to the research of wound healing and drug development.
The healing properties of medicinal plants used in the Brazilian public health system: a systematic review.
TLDR
A systematic review of the healing potential of medicinal plants belonging to the Brazilian National List of Medicinal Plants of Interest to the Unified Health System (RENISUS) from 2010 to June 2016 may encourage and contribute to the appropriate use of medicinal Plants in the public health system in Brazil.
Injured Achilles Tendons Treated with Adipose-Derived Stem Cells Transplantation and GDF-5
TLDR
Although the literature describes the benefic effect of GDF-5 for the tendon healing process, the results show that its application, isolated or associated with ADMSC, cannot improve the repair process of partial transected tendons, indicating the higher effectiveness of the application of AD MSC in injured Achilles tendons.

TLDR
This study suggests that the anti-oxidant constituents of the pineapple plant are concentrated in the flesh while the bark and flesh extracts have the potential to promote healing by stimulating tenoblast proliferation.
Influence of the physiological regeneration and epithelialization using fractions isolated from Calendula officinalis.
TLDR
The drug combination applied markedly stimulates physiological regeneration and epithelialization in Wistar albino rats, assumed to be due to more intensive metabolism of glycoproteins, nucleoproteins and collagen proteins during the regenerative period in the tissues.
