Abstract

Wound healing is a well-orchestrated and tightly controlled process in which several cell types, cytokines and growth factor take place in an orderly fashion. Any break in the process would cause delay in healing which would increase hospitalization time, cost, mortality and morbidity. Scientists and clinicians are trying to find effective, safe and cheap methods to treat and manage acute and non-healing chronic wounds. Medicinal plants, in this line, have been widely investigated, and gained remarkable attention in this field due to having vital therapeutic molecules.
