Epidermal growth factor (EGF) exhibits its gastroprotective action against a variety of irritants and ulcerogens and plays an important role in healing of acute and chronic gastroduodenal ulcerations, but the mechanisms of these effects are not known. The present study was undertaken to determine whether polyamines (such as spermine or putrescine) and(More)
Leukotriene C4 (LTC4) and platelet activating-factor (PAF) were found to affect gastric microcirculation and mucosal integrity but their role in acute gastric damage has not been established. The present study with rats confirms that exogenous LTC4 (10 micrograms/kg.h s.c.) or PAF (10 micrograms/kg i.p.) alone caused only mild gastric mucosal injury but(More)
Sucralfate prevents the formation of acute gastric lesions induced by various ulcerogens and enhances the healing of chronic gastroduodenal ulcerations, but the mechanism of these effects has not been fully explained. This study was designed to determine the importance of intragastric pH in the sucralfate-induced gastroprotection against 100% ethanol,(More)
Nocloprost (9 beta-chloro-16,16-dimethyl prostaglandin E2 (PGE2)) was examined for gastroprotective and ulcer-healing activity and compared to 16,16-dimethyl PGE2 (dmPGE) in rats. Nocloprost given intragastrically (i.g.) at various doses (0.01-10 micrograms/kg) 30 min before 100% ethanol, acidified aspirin (ASA), acidified taurocholate, water immersion, or(More)
This study was designed to determine the specificity and physiological nature of short-term satiety effects of cholecystokinin (CCK) in rats with intact and transected vagal nerves. Rats with-the gastric fistulas, closed or open, were used for normal feeding or sham feeding of liquid meal offered for 30 min. CCK-8 (0.5-10 nmol/kg) injected intraperitoneally(More)
Antacids containing aluminum have been shown to stimulate the protective processes in the gastric mucosa and to enhance the healing of chronic gastroduodenal ulcerations, but the mechanisms of these effects are still unexplained. This study was designed to compare the protective effects of unmodified and acidified (pH 2.0) Maalox 70 and Al(OH)3 on the(More)
The aim of this paper was to assess the surgical and functional results of Syme's amputation in patients with infected necrosis of the fore- and midfoot caused by diabetes. The material consisted of 5 patients (4 men) age ranging from 44 to 78 years. No stump healing was achieved in a 44 year old man with arteriosclerosis who did not agree to a higher(More)
