On the basis of its traditional use and literature references, this plant was selected for evaluation of its wound healing potential. An alcoholic extract of aerial parts of lndigofera enneaphylla Linn. Was examined for its wound healing activity in the form of ointment in two types of wound models in rats the excision wound model and the incision wound model.
