F. N Oguwike | D. P. M. Onubueze

Abstract: The efficacy of Lemon (Citrus lemonirisso) juice on wound healing of albino wistar rat was investigated; also the potential haemostatic mechanism associated with administration of the extract was investigated. Results showed that lemon juice extract decreased haemoglobin concentration, packed cell volume while it has no significant effect on platelet count, white blood cell count and white cell differential counts in albino rats. Furthermore, the bleeding and clotting times were shortened and the period of healing of wound using lemon juice could possess some elements that is affecting the haemostatic mechanism.
