A recent study from the Department of Preventive Dentistry, Peking University School and Hospital of Stomatology, Beijing 100081, China; and Department of Periodontics, School of Dental Medicine, Philadelphia  shows that “FOXO1 differentially regulates both normal and diabetic wound healing.” This study was published in the 27 April  2015 issue of Journal of Cell Biology (JCB) by Prof Dana T. Graves & Chenying Zhang, and others.

On the foundation of this interesting finding, Dr L Boominathan PhD, Director-cum-chief Scientist of GBMD, reports that: Natural product-based accelerated healing therapy for Diabetic patients: Oleic acid, the main component of Neem oil, enhances wound healing in diabetic patients via down regulation of its target gene.

Significance: 

This study suggests a small molecule-based wound healing therapy for diabetic patients. Oleic acid, by increasing the expression of its target gene, it may: (1) increase TGF-β1 expression and its down stream target genes; (2) increase keratinocyte migration; and (3) promote wound closure. Thereby, it may accelerate wound  healing. Thus, pharmacological formulations encompassing “Oleic acid or its analogues” may be used to accelerate would healing.
