The researchers;
Venkat Raghavan K, Mary Babu, Rama Rajaram and Korrapati Purna Sai,
Department of Biomaterials
Central Leather Research Institute
Chennai, India; recently published an article in "Lipids in Health and Disease listed in PubMed and archived at PubMed Central", where they have found potential use of frog lipid in wound healing. I quote;
" The current study envisages the role of frog skin lipids in the inflammatory phase of wound healing. The lipid moiety of the frog skin dominated by phospholipids exhibited a dose dependent acceleration of healing irrespective of the mode of application. The efficiency of the extract is attributed partially to the anti-inflammatory activity as observed by the histochemical and immunostimulatory together with plethysmographic studies.
Conclusions: Thus, frog skin for the first time has been demonstrated to possess lipidcomponents with pharmaceutical and therapeutic potential. The identification and characterization of such natural healing molecules and evaluating their mechanism of actionwould therefore provide basis for understanding the cues of Nature and hence can be used for application in medicine."
