The Mechanisms of Centalla asiatica’s Wound Healing Molecule, Asiaticoside
Asiaticoside is a triterpene obtained from Centella asiatica and demonstrated to have healing potential against various wound models. Wounds are inflicted for constructive reasons even though more often they are results of accidents. This work aims at identifying molecular targets which account for the therapeutic results attributed to the use of asiaticoside. Even though exact mechanisms of action have not been reported, experimental evidences point at the inhibition of pro-inflammation and enhanced tissue regeneration.
