Wound healing activity of Euphorbia nivulia Buch.-Ham. (Euphorbiaceae) was evaluated using excision wound model in albino mice by applying latex topically on the area of excised wound once a day for 23 days. Plant latex significantly enhanced the rate of wound contraction and period of epithelialization, which is comparable to Soframycin. Latex of this plant significantly reduces the bleeding and whole blood clotting time. Phytochemical analysis revealed the presence of alkaloids, cynogenic glycosides, phenolics, tannins and saponins. The latex of Euphorbia nivulia possesses natural ingredients capable of arresting wound bleeding and accelerating wound healing properties which suggests healing potential to cure wound.
