This study was designed to determine the gastroprotective properties of cinitapride (CNT), a novel prokinetic benzamide derivative agonist of 5-HT4 and 5-HT1 receptors and 5-HT2 antagonist, on mucosal injury produced by 50% (v/v) ethanol. Results were compared with those for 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT: 10 mg kg-1). The possible involvements of gastric mucus secretion, endogenous prostaglandins (PGs) and sulfhydryl compounds (SH) in the protection mediated by CNT were also examined… 
Effects of cinitapride on gastric ulceration and secretion in rats
A new gastroprotective feature of CNT is demonstrated that could be partly explained not only through reduction of neutrophil toxicity but also by an increased synthesis of free-radical scavenging enzymes such as glutathione peroxidase.
The 5-HT4 receptor agonist mosapride attenuates NSAID-induced gastric mucosal damage
Results suggest that the mucosal protective action of mosapride may be mediated by an action on immune cells through the acceleration of ACh release from parasympathetic nerves via the activation of 5-HT4 receptors, followed by activation of the nicotinic anti-inflammatory system.
Dose-Dependent Effects of Verapamil on Ethanol- Induced Gastric Lesions in Rats
Results indicate that reduced acidity and lipid peroxidation and increased mucus secretion participate in the protective effects of verapamil against ethanol damage, on the other hand, a decrease in the nonprotein sulfhydryl content was observed with decreased gastroprotective effects of VERAPamil.
Effects of Oxicam Inhibitors of Cyclooxygenase on Oxidative Stress Generation in Rat Gastric Mucosa. A Comparative Study
Under experimental conditions, meloxicam, preferential COX-2 inhibitor causes rates of gastric lesion in rats comparable to those seen with the traditional NSAID piroxicam, preferentCOX-1 inhibitor.
Effects of Dipyrone on Inflammatory Infiltration and Oxidative Metabolism in Gastric Mucosa: Comparison with Acetaminophen and Diclofenac
These findings confirm the favorable gastric tolerability of dipyrone, since only the highest dose produced weak mucosal lesions similar to that obtained with acetaminophen, and this effect only could be related to a diminished glutathione metabolism.
Gastric toxicity of racemic ketoprofen and its enantiomers in rat: Oxygen radical generation and COX-expression
The gastric toxicity of racemic-ketoprofen and its enantiomers, oxygen free radical generation and neutrophil infiltration in response to damage were evaluated in rats, and the racemate induced the highest disturbances in oxidative metabolism.
Increased expression of tight junction protein occludin is associated with the protective effect of mosapride against aspirin-induced gastric injury.
The results of the present study suggest that mosapride exerts a gastroprotective action on aspirin-induced gastric mucosal injury at least in part via attenuating cell apoptosis and increasing occludin expression.
Efficacy and Safety of Cinitapride in the Treatment of Mild to Moderate Postprandial Distress Syndrome–predominant Functional Dyspepsia
This phase III trial has confirmed the noninferior efficacy of cinitapride over domperidone for patients with mild to moderate, postprandial distress syndrome–predominant FD, and its cardiovascular events need further evaluation.
Characterization of in vitro metabolic profiles of cinitapride obtained with liver microsomes of humans and various mammal species using UHPLC and chemometric methods for data analysis
An ultra-high performance liquid chromatographic method has been utilized to obtain metabolic profiles of cinitapride with liver microsomes of humans and various mammal species such as rats, mice,
