The present study was conducted to investigate the effect of Rheum emodi (Rhubarb) root powder on the expression of wound healing genes Ccr1, EGF, Keratin 6 and EGR-1 in rabbits of different age groups. The wounds treated with Rhubarb powder showed enhanced expression of Ccr1, EGF, K6 and EGR-1 by using reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction against normal saline treated wounds in all the groups. The expression was more pronounced in group A and B treated wounds as against group C… Expand

HEALING POTENTIAL OF RHEUM EMODI (RHUBARB) ROOT POWDER ON EXCISION WOUNDS IN RABBIT
TLDR
Rheum emodi root powder is a natural and safe herbal agent with a high wound healing potential and exhibited the prominent wounds healing potential of the herb. Expand
Immuno-enhancing effects of the herbal extract from Himalayan rhubarb Rheum emodi Wall. ex Meissn
TLDR
The data indicate that R. emodi extract may have anti-tumour effects by regulating Th-1 and Th-2 immune response in vivo and effects on signal transduction parameters that could pave the way for understanding some of the treatment principles of the plant extracts. Expand
The effects of ageing on wound healing: immunolocalisation of growth factors and their receptors in a murine incisional model
TLDR
The quantity and distribution patterns of the various growth factors and their receptors may explain the age‐related differences in wound healing speed and quality, and possibly suggest new therapeutic targets for manipulating wound healing in the aged. Expand
Effect of growth factors on cell proliferation and epithelialization in human skin.
TLDR
It is postulate that FGF, IGF-1, and EGF are important mitogens for wound healing and that EGF in particular is capable of stimulating epithelialization. Expand
RHUBARB: THE WONDROUS DRUG. A REVIEW
Rhubarb (Rheum emodi) is an important medicinal plant, which finds an extensive use in Ayurveda and Unani system of medicine. Rhubarb (Rheum emodi, family Polygonaceae) has been traditionally used asExpand
EGFR enhances early healing after cutaneous incisional wounding.
TLDR
Examination of EGFR null- and wild-type skin after injury demonstrates that EGFR regulates multiple facets of cutaneous wound healing, including inflammation, wound contraction, proliferation, migration, and angiogenesis. Expand
The Use of a Rabbit Model to Evaluate the Influence of Age on Excision Wound Healing
TLDR
Wounds in aged heal more slowly than those in younger, mainly because of co morbidities that occurs as one ages, but significant increase in the influence of age on wound healing is found. Expand
Essential roles for early growth response transcription factor Egr-1 in tissue fibrosis and wound healing.
TLDR
Using the model of bleomycin-induced scleroderma, it is found that the early influx of inflammatory cells into the skin and lungs, and the subsequent development of fibrosis in these organs, were markedly attenuated in Egr-1 null mice. Expand
Tracking angiogenesis induced by skin wounding and contact hypersensitivity using a Vegfr2-luciferase transgenic mouse.
TLDR
A transgenic mouse, Vegfr2-luc, is described, in which a luciferase reporter is under control of the murine VEGFR2 promoter, which will be valuable in monitoring the ability of drugs to affect angiogenesis in vivo. Expand
