d-Panthenol is effective in accelerating the wound healing process. A study was conducted using a 5% d-panthenol ointment versus no treatment. The untreated wound took 104 hours to close completely whereas epithelisation of the wound treated with panthenol took 68 hours to close completely. Similar results were obtained by repeated comparison of panthenol ointment with placebo. The mean time to healing under placebo was 99 hours, whereas application of the preparation containing d-panthenol reduced this time to 70 hours. 1
Weisser and Erlemann have shown that even low concentrations of d-panthenol have a positive influence on epithelisation.
