The ethanol extract of the dried leaves of Desmodium triquetrum was studied for wound healing effect using incision, excision and dead space wound models in rats. Significant increase in wound contraction rate, skin breaking strength, granuloma strength and dry granuloma weight and significant decrease in epithelization period was observed. The prohealing actions seemed to be due to increased collagen deposition as well as better alignment and maturation.
