Studies from R. Sankar and Colleagues Yield New Information about Nanoparticles (Wound healing activity of Origanum vulgare engineered titanium dioxide nanoparticles in Wistar Albino rats)

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Health & Medicine Week -- Investigators publish new report on Nanoparticles. According to news originating from Tiruchirappalli, India, by NewsRx correspondents, research stated, "The titanium dioxide nanoparticles (TiO2 center dot NPs) were synthesized utilizing Origanum vulgare under room temperature. The green synthesized TiO2 NPs excitation was confirmed using UV-Vis spectrophotometer at 320 nm."

Our news journalists obtained a quote from the research, "Scanning electron microscopy analysis showed TiO2 center dot NPs are spherical in shape and connected with one another. Dynamic light scattering analysis results specified high stability in nanoparticles, with an average particle size of 341 nm. Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy peaks revealed the presence of bioactive functional groups in Origanum vulgare aqueous leaf extract much needed for the TiO2 center dot NPs formation. X-ray diffraction spectra showed the TiO2 center dot NPs are amorphous in nature. Furthermore, the green synthesized TiO2 center dot NPs wound healing activity was examined in the excision wound model by measuring wound closure, histopathology and protein profiling, revealed significant wound healing activity in Albino rats."

According to the news editors, the research concluded: "Our results bared TiO2 center dot NPs have delivered a novel therapeutic route for wound treatment in clinical practice."
