Table 5 Effect of extract and fractions on epithelialisation time in rats

From: Potentials of leaves of Aspilia africana (Compositae) in wound care: an experimental evaluation

Extract/fractions Dose (mg/kg) Epithelialisation
   Time (Days) Reduction (%)
ME 200 7.67 ± 0.33a 25.75
  400 8.33 ± 0.33a 19.36
HF 200 8.00 ± 0.00a 22.56
  400 8.30 ± 0.33a 19.65
MF 200 6.67 ± 0.67a 35.43
  400 7.67 ± 0.88a 25.75
Control - 10.33 ± 0.67 -
  1. a P < 0.05 compared to Control (ANOVA;LSD post hoc); Values of epithelialisation time shown are Mean ± SEM (n = 3); ME = Methanol extract; HF = n-Hexane fraction; MF = Methanol fraction
