Abstract: Ethnopharmacological relevance: Leaves from Combretum mucronatum Schum. &Thonn. are traditionally used for wound healing inWestern Africa. Aqueous and hydroalcoholic extracts of the dried leaves recently have been shown to stimulate viability of human keratinocytes and dermal fibroblasts. Aim of the study: Phytochemical characterization of the herbal material, development of a validated HPLC methodology for quality control, and pinpointing the underlying pharmacological mechanism under in vitro conditions to understand the impact of C. mucronatum extracts on human skin cells. Materials and methods: Extracts obtained from the leaves from C. mucronatum by using solvents with different polarities.......
