Brush, B., Lamb, C. 1942. Surgery. 12:355-363

Wounds made on the abdominal wall of guinea pigs were treated with various substances, including chloramines, urea crystals and chlorophyll ointment. None were found to consistently exert an accelerating effect on wound healing. In the chlorophyll group 4 animals showed accelerated healing and 7 displayed no effect.
