We previously established a model of cell damage induced by an acidified medium in the rat gastric epithelial cell line RGM1. Treatment of the cells with epidermal growth factor (EGF, 1-10 ng/ml) for 4 h prevented acid-induced cell damage in a concentration-dependent manner. In contrast, basic fibroblast growth factor (1-10 ng/ml) and platelet-derived… CONTINUE READING
