What does a Defence laboratory have to do with medicine? Plenty, apparently. Soldiers might sustain burns, combat injuries, diabetic and pressure uclers and DRDO has developed a ‘Herbo Healer’, a cream, to treat such wounds. Call it ‘Burnol’ from DRDO labs, if you will. And DRDO offers it to the industry for licensing.
Healing of such indolent wounds is usually delayed due to several pathophysiological factors like sustained inflammation, vascular disorder, neuropathy, infection etc. The safe and effective wound care interventions are required, which are non-toxic, minimally-invasive and economically feasible for improving wound healing.
‘Herbo Healer’ in the form of topical cream is a well-standardized and characterized product developed using single herbal component, which augments healing of acute as well as impaired wounds. It is pure herbal and rich in natural, bioactive antioxidants like flavonoids (quercetin, isorhamnetin, kaempferol), polyphenols, phytosterols and vitamins (ascorbic acid, tocopherols). It possesses excellent wound healing, free radical scavenging and antimicrobial activities.
Potential Benefits of ‘Herbo Healer’:
