Molecular Concept of Diabetic Wound Healing: Effective Role of Herbal Remedies

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The incidence of diabetes mellitus (DM) is on the rise, worldwide. One of the main complications in DM is delayed wound healing and it often requires amputation. Various drugs were used to treat DM but they presented with adverse effects. Often, patients failed to comply with such treatment. This opened the door for complementary and alternative medicine. In the present review, we explored the molecular concept of wound healing occurring in different stages with special emphasis to DM. We also highlighted the potential herbal products such as NF3 (Chinese 2-Herb Formula), Zicao, Jing Wan Hong ointment, Aleo vera, mixture of Adiantum capillus-veneris, Commiphora molmol, Aloe vera, and henna, Phenol-rich compound sweet gel, Jinchuang ointment, San-huang-sheng-fu (S) oil, Yi Bu A Jie extract, Astragali Radix (AR) and Rehmanniae Radix (RR), Yiqi Huayu, Tangzu yuyang ointment, Shengji Huayu recipe, Angelica sinensis, Lithospermun erythrorhison, Hippophae rhamnoides L., Curcuma longa and Momordica charantia that could be used effectively to treat DM wounds. Future clinical trials are needed for designing potential drugs which may be effective in treating DM wounds.
