&NA; Previous studies showed that twice‐daily application of emu oil lotion (mixture of emu oil/fat, vitamin E, and botanical oil) immediately after creation of full‐thickness skin defects delayed wound healing 6 days later, perhaps owing to its antiinflammatory actions. If administration was delayed for 48 hours, a two‐fold promotion of wound contraction, epithelialization, and infiltration of organized granulation tissue was observed. In the present study, emu oil lotion was applied to full… 
A comparison of wound healing following treatment with Lavandula x allardii honey or essential oil
TLDR
Data suggest that L. x allardii honey, but not essential oil, has a beneficial action in wound healing, and suggests that scar maturation in these animals was more advanced than in other groups.
IN VIVO ANTIINFLAMMATORY EFFECT OF EMU OIL (DROMAIS NOVAEHOLLANDIAE) AND VIRGIN COCONUT OIL (COCOS NUCIFERA) ON PHORBOL ESTER INDUCED ACUTE INFLAMMATORY MODEL
Inflammation is a cellular reaction to injury and plays a central role in pathophysiology of a variety of diseases. Oil derived from Emu (Dromais novaehollandiae) fat, is reported to have healing
Effects of Topical Emu Oil on Burn Wounds in the Skin of Balb/c Mice
TLDR
The findings indicate that although Emu oil delays the healing process, it has a positive effect on wound healing and it increases the number of hair follicles in the margins of the wound.
The emu oil emulsified in egg lecithin and butylated hydroxytoluene enhanced the proliferation, stemness gene expression, and in vitro wound healing of adipose-derived stem cells
TLDR
Emu oil treatment could maintain the stemness of ex vivo cultivated ASCs and enhance their regenerative potential, according to the findings of this study.
Comparing the efficacy of Emu oil with clotrimazole and hydrocortisone in the treatment of seborrheic dermatitis: A clinical trial
TLDR
Emmu oil is a potentially useful agent that significantly improves itching, erythema and scales associated with SD; however, it was less effective than hydrocortisone and clotrimazole which are routinely prescribed to treat SD.
Antagonism of croton oil inflammation by topical emu oil in CD-1 mice
TLDR
It is indicated that topical emu oil has anti-inflammatory properties in the CD-1 mouse that are associated with decreased auricular thickness and weight, and with the cytokines IL-1α and TNF-α.
Pharmacological modulation of wound healing in experimental burns.
Ratite oils promote keratinocyte cell growth and inhibit leukocyte activation.
TLDR
It is suggested that emu oil might promote wound healing by accelerating the growth rate of keratinocytes and combined with anti-inflammatory properties, ratite oil may serve as a useful component in bandages and ointments for the treatment of wounds and inflammatory skin conditions.
Preparation, Characterization and Analgesic Evaluation of a Novel Physical Hydrogel Composed of Opened-ring poly (Vinyl Pyrrolidone) and Chitosan Containing Ostrich Oil in Mice
TLDR
It was showed that ostrich oil hydrogel could reduce inflammation and central pain and was found to have good analgesic effects.

Prostaglandin I3 is formed in vivo in man after dietary eicosapentaenoic acid
TLDR
It is shown here that the major urinary metabolite of endogenous prostaglandin I3 is present in subjects that have ingested either cod liver oil or mackerel, and provides the first direct evidence for in vivo formation of prostaglandsin I2 in man.

TLDR
The disease pattern of the Greenlanders differs from that of West-European populations, having a higher frequency of apoplexy and epilepsy but a lower frequency or absence of acute myocardial infarction, diabetes mellitus, thyrotoxicosis, bronchial asthma, multiple sclerosis and psoriasis.

TLDR
The effect of inhibitors on the spleen elastase showed it to be a serine proteinase with a specificity similar to that of porcine pancreatic elastsase, and it was shown to be immunologically identical with the lysosomalElastase of human neutrophil leucocytes.
