  • Abstract

    A review study was undertaken to find out the prevalence of wounds in Asian elephants. Antibiotics were used to treat the Asian Elephant wounds. This study primarily focus on the efficacy and better dosage forms of the various medicines that were used to treat the wounds in Asian elephants. Recent studies showed that nano-formulated curcumin//gelatin-blended nanofibrous mats (NMs) accelerates acute wound healing through Dkk-1-mediated fibroblast mobilization and MCP-1- mediated anti-inflammation and recently new approach has been designed in ulcer prevention and wound healing treatment for animal diseases using Doxycycline and Amoxicillin/LDH Nanocomposites. In future, nanotechnology can be used for the management of wounds in elephants.
