PPP-14: STUDY OF PROPERTIES HEALING Aloe COMPARED WITH SHOSTASKOWKY BALM IN THE MALE ALBINO RATS
Cardosa E, Dorado L.
Introduction: The use of aloe (Aloe vera/Aloe barbadensis) was popularized in many Western countries during the 50s attributing various medicinal properties. The population has used topically for its antibacterial and healing effects so that a preclinical experimental study was conducted to scientifically prove the healing time of wounds using the plant in its natural form compared with the balm of Shostaskowsky as standard. Material and Methods: For this purpose were used 48 male albino rats, with weigh between 130 and 150 g and not subject to any previous study. These were divided into three groups: control group, experimental group (with aloe, aloe pure) and a group with a scar pattern (Russian Balm Shostakowsky). In the rats were underwent an incisional wound of 1 cm in length affecting the skin and subcutaneous tissue. The product was applied one time at day until spontaneous fall of the crust with smooth and shiny surface which was the criterion for considering the wound healed using as measured by daily observation and histological studies of the affected area for which a rat from each group was sacrificed daily randomly selected. With the reorganiza-tion was accelerated colagenasen fibers showed the experimental group. Results and Conclusions: The healing time of lesions in the animals of experimental group was significantly lower for the group with regard to control and pattern.
