Gastroduodenal Mucosal Protection Induced by Dehydroleucodine: Mucus Secretion and Role of Monoamines
In previous work we have demonstrated thatdehydroleucodine (DhL) prevents gastric damage inducedby necrosis-inducing agents such as absolute ethanol(EtOH). In this study we examine the effects of DhLExpand
