THYME OIL LOADED CASSAVA STARCH TRANSDERMAL FILM FOR WOUND HEALING
by Ms. Vinita Ashish Pawar, 14 Jul 2019

Biodegradable cassava starch-based transdermal film loaded with thyme essential oil was prepared by solvent casting method for wound healing activity. The tensile strength, antimicrobial properties and water vapour permeability of the film were measured. The films were evaluated for drug –excipient compatibility studies by differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), Fourier transformed infrared spectroscopy (FTIR). The film was tested to determine its potential to increase the number of capillaries on the treated CAM surfaces from three days old fertilized chick eggs. Cassava starch loaded thyme oil films exhibited angiogenic potential required in the treatment of wound healing. The formulated film loaded with thyme essential oil exhibited good anti-microbial activity against Staphylococcus aureus and Pseudomonas aeruginosa.
