Roots of Hemidesmus indicus var. indicus are used for various ailments in Indian traditional medicines. The present study evaluated the antiulcerogenic property of aqueous ethanolic extracts of the roots in animal models. Modified pyloric ligated (Shay) rat model and aspirin-induced ulcerogenesis in pylorus ligated rat models were used for this study and analysed for gastric volume, ulcer score, pH, free and total acidity and sodium and potassium ion output. Bio-chemical estimations like total… CONTINUE READING
