This investigation was designed to evaluate the role of Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) on healing of experimentally wounded skin in ten adult bucks, aged 2-3 years and weighing 25-30 kg. The animals divided randomly and equally into (control and treatment groups). Four of 33 cm of full-thickness square cutaneous wounds was induced on both sides of the lateral thoracic region of each animal under the effect of local anesthetic proceeding by xylazine hydrochloride as a sedative. A pair of left wounds was treated by injection with 5 mL of autonomous PRP (treatment group), 2 mm lateral to the wound edges and in the wound center. While, the right wound were injected by 5 mL of sterile saline by the same procedure (control group). Each group was divided into five subgroups (four wounds of each), for morph metrical and histopathological evaluations of wound healing process represented by percent of wound contraction, epithelialization and total healing at 3, 7, 14, 21 and 28 days post-wounding. The morphometrical appearance of the wounds which treated with PRP, showed that the contraction, re-epithelialization and healing percent were statically significant (p<0.05) in comparison with control wounds during four weeks study. Based on histopathological results, there was re-epithelialization of epidermis, with highly cellular granulation tissue, well differentiated keratinocytes of epidermis with scar formation in the dermis of the sectioned skin. We conclude that local injection of PRP leads to accelerate and improvement of wound healing in comparison to control wounds.
