The anti-ulcerogenic and anti-oxidant effects of various flavonoids have been frequently reported. We investigated the cytoprotective properties of quercetin, a natural flavone, in gastric mucosal injury induced by 50% ethanol, since in this experimental model the pathogenesis of the lesions has been related with production of reactive oxygen species. The involvement of neutrophil infiltration and the capacity of this flavonoid to restrain the oxidative process produced in the gastric tissue… CONTINUE READING
