Wound is perhaps an inescapable event in the life of an organism. Healing process begins during the early phase of inflammation, but reaches completion usually after the injurious influence has been neutralized. It should be emphasized that without inflammation wounds would never heal. Tridax procumbens Linn (Asteraceae) growing widely courtallam and surrounding regions peoples used who were suffered from minor cuts, scraps. The pharmacological screening of the ethanolic extract of Tridax procumbens were carried out the following parameters like Gross behavioural studies, Wound healing activity, Leucocytes count. The Tridax procumbens extract showed significant increase wound closure when compare to solvent control (P<0.001). In the Tridax extract the increase in the count of WBC is significantly differing from the solvent control (P<0.05). The present study indicates the potential wound healing property of the plant Tridax procumbens extract.
