Many research groups are examining natural products for their vulnerary activity. On the basis of the countless years of folklore and clinical observations, these preparations are being fractionated and applied to wounds in a variety of animal species. Despite this work, the number of agents that have documented ability to enhance wound healing is minimal. This article provides a brief review of some of the major historical milestones in wound care and provides a framework for studying plant… Expand
(+)-Usnic acid enamines with remarkable cicatrizing properties.
TLDR
The design and synthesis of usnic acid enamines obtained through nucleophilic attack of amino acids or decarboxyamino acids at the acyl carbonyl of the enolized 1,3 diketone combine low cytotoxicity with high wound healing performance, suggesting their possible use in wound healing-promoting or antiage skin preparations.

The Extract of Lycium depressum Stocks Enhances Wound Healing in Streptozotocin-Induced Diabetic Rats
TLDR
The extract of L depressum leaves enhanced wound contraction, decreased epithelialization time, increased hydroxyproline content, and improved mechanical indices and histological characteristics in treatment groups compared with SHAM and FG (P < .05). Expand
Comparing the effects of nebivolol and dexpanthenol on wound healing: an experimental study
TLDR
The wound healing rates of the dexpanthenol and nebivolol groups were higher than those of the control group (P < 0·05), however, the wound healers were not significantly different. Expand
A review of the literature informing affordable, available wound management choices for rural areas of tropical developing countries.
TLDR
The results suggest that a moist wound environment can be maintained using improvised dressings such as banana leaves, saline-soaked furniture foam, and food wrap, and that these choices are superior to many commercial dressings. Expand

TLDR
More than 90% wound healing was recorded in the extract and cicatrin powder treated groups by 14 days post surgery, where as 72% healing was observed in the distilled water-treated group, significantly different from those of extract and antibiotic-treated groups. Expand
Acceleration of wound healing by topical application of honey. An animal model.
TLDR
It is suggested that honey applied topically on open wounds accelerates the healing process and seems to accelerate wound healing when applied topical due to its energy-producing properties, its hygroscopic effect on the wound, and its bacteriocidic properties. Expand
