Wound healing potential of Tinospora Crispa (Willd.) Miers [Menispermaceae] stem on diabetic mice

Ryan O Arcueno, Jinger Lyn B Retumban, Joycelyn E Echano, Jonathan Jaime G Guerrero

Tinospora crispa of the family Menispermaceae has been traditionally used in the Philippines to treat a variety of illnesses, including diabetes milletus and its accompanying complications. This study aimed to compare the effect of Tinospora crispa on healing of diabetic wound among albino mice when given intraperitoneally and when administered along with an ointment topically applied to the wound. Results showed a significant reduction in blood glucose level among mice given the plant extract. However, it may be suggestive that the additional ointment had not contributed significantly to wound healing as the wound healing time and percent wound contraction between the two groups are not significantly different.
