Wound healing response of the proteolytic enzyme curcain
LK Nath, SK Dutta
Wound healing property of curcain, the protease isolated from the latex of Jalropha curcas Linn was determined in mice. Two ointments of curcain were prepared by incorporating 0.5% and 1.0% (w/w) of curcain powder into the washable ointment base. Healing of the wound by the curcain ointments was found to be better than nitrofurazone ointment and propamidine isethionate cream in mice.
