Abstract: Wound healing activity of methanol extract of <i style="mso-bidi-font-style:normal">Alternanthera brasiliana </i>[5% (w/w) ointment] <span style="color:black;mso-bidi-font-weight: bold">was evaluated in experimental burn wound model in rats. Healing<sup> </sup>potential was assessed by the rate of wound contraction, estimation of anti-oxidants like catalase, superoxide dismutase, reduced glutathione, protein, vitamin C and hydroxyproline, along with histopathological examination on 8<sup>th</sup> day post wounding. <span style="color:black;mso-bidi-font-style:italic">The statistical data indicated that there was significant <span style="mso-bidi-font-weight: bold">increase in wound contraction<span style="color:black; mso-bidi-font-weight:bold;mso-bidi-font-style:italic"> along with augmented level of antioxidants in<span style="color:black;mso-bidi-font-style: italic"> <span style="mso-bidi-font-weight:bold">granulation tissues in <i>A. brasiliana </i>treated group. Histopathological assessment of the granulation tissue revealed formation of epidermis with keratin layer and deposition of collagen fibers after <span style="color:black;mso-bidi-font-style:italic">treatment with the plant extract. </span></span></span></span></span></span></span>
