The effect of mastic, a concrete resinous exudate obtained from the stem of the tree Pistacia lentiscus, has been studied on experimentally-induced gastric and duodenal ulcers in rats. Mastic at an oral dose of 500 mg/kg produced a significant reduction in the intensity of gastric mucosal damage induced by pyloric ligation, aspirin, phenylbutazone, reserpine and restraint + cold stress. It produced a significant decrease of free acidity in 6-h pylorus-ligated rats and a marked cytoprotective… Expand
The Use of Pistacia Lentiscus Chia Resin Versus Omeprazole in Protecting Male Rats Peptic Mucosa Against Cold Restraint Stress
TLDR
The natural Chios mastic gum is a promising nutritional supplement with protective properties to the peptic mucosa against CRS, exerting anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects. Expand
Chios gum mastic: A review of its biological activities.
TLDR
Modern scientific research has justified the beneficial action of mastic to gastric diseases, by revealing its in vivo and in vitro activity against Helicobacter pylori, which is considered as the main cause for gastric ulcers. Expand
Anti-Ulcer and Wound Healing Activities of Dipteracanthus Patulus (Jacq) Leaf Extracts
TLDR
The extracts of the Dipteracanthus patulus has significantly protected the gastric mucosa against ethanol challenge as shown by reduced values of ulcer index as compared to control group signifying its potent cytoprotective effect. Expand
Antiulcerogenic effects of two Maytenus species in laboratory animals.
TLDR
The extract was shown to cause an increase in volume and pH of gastric juice of the animals with the pH effects comparable to those of cimetidine, which tends to confirm the popular use of the plant. Expand
In Vitro and In Vivo Activities of Chios Mastic Gum Extracts and Constituents against Helicobacter pylori
TLDR
Results show that administration of TMEWP may be effective in reducing H. pylori colonization and that the major triterpenic acids in the acid extract may be responsible for such an activity. Expand
Anti-Ulcerogenic Evaluation of the Persian Tooth Brush Tree (Salvadora Persica)
TLDR
Salvadora persica shows some increase in gastric mucus with a certain diminution in the ulcer index in cold stress-induced ulcers, however, the drug failed to heal ethanol and indomethacin- induced ulcers. Expand
Protective effect of essential oil of Pistacia atlantica Desf. on peptic ulcer: role of α-pinene.
TLDR
Protective effect of standardized Pistacia atlantica essential oil against ethanol-induced gastric ulcer and its antibacterial activity on Helicobacter pylori is exhibited and α-pinene might be the responsible agent. Expand
Effects of mastic gum Pistacia lentiscus var. Chia on innate cellular immune effectors
TLDR
AGPs/CMG inhibit neutrophil activation in the presence of HP-NAP, playing a crucial role in H. pylori-associated pathologies in gastric mucosa. Expand
Mastic gum kills Helicobacter pylori.
TLDR
It is found that mastic is active against Helicobacter pylori, which could explain its therapeutic effect in patients with peptic ulcers. Expand
Review: Chios mastic gum: a plant-produced resin exhibiting numerous diverse pharmaceutical and biomedical properties.
TLDR
These numerous and diverse medical and pharmaceutical properties of CMG and MGO warrant further research in an effort to enhance specific properties and identify specific constituent(s) that might be associated with each property. Expand

Gastric emptying in the rat is inhibited by the duodenal ulcerogens, cysteamine and propionitrile.
TLDR
The possibility that this action of cysteamine and propionitrile to delay gastric emptying may be required for experimental ulcer formation is suggested. Expand
Pathogenesis of duodenal ulcer. Gastric hyperacidity caused by propionitrile and cysteamine in rats.
TLDR
Enhanced gastric acid output may play an important role in the pathogenesis of duodenal ulcer produced by propionitrile and cysteamine. Expand
Cysteamine-induced duodenal ulcer and acid secretion in the rat.
TLDR
The results indicate that, although some acid in the duodenum is required for ulcer formation, the hypersecretion of acid induced by cysteamine is not the only factor responsible for the development of duodenal ulcer. Expand
Gastric acid stimulating action of cysteamine in the rat.
TLDR
The results suggest that a cholinergic mechanism is involved in the gastric secretion induced by cysteamine, and that this mechanism is dose-dependently influenced by atropine methylbromide or hexamethonium. Expand
Cytoprotection by Prostaglandins in Rats Prevention of Gastric Necrosis Produced by Alcohol, HCl, NaOH, Hypertonic NaCl, and Thermal Injury
TLDR
It is suggested that certain prostaglandins, by a mechanism other than the inhibition of gastric acid secretion, maintain the cellular integrity of the gastric mucosa, and might be beneficial in the treatment of a variety of diseases in which Gastric mucosal injury is present. Expand
VAGAL RELEASE OF GASTRIN IN CATS FOLLOWING RESERPINE.

TLDR
It is suggested that reserpine causes release of antral and duodenal gastrin by central vagal activation, probably by a centrally induced enhancement of vagal tone. Expand
Mechanism of ulcerogenic activity of reserpine in albino rats.
TLDR
Reserpine-induced gastric ulceration was significantly prevented by α-adrenoceptor blockers but not by propanolol or by bilateral adrenalectomy, and Pretreatment with 6-hydroxydopamine or atropine methyl nitrate protected the animals from the ulcerogenic activity of reserpine. Expand
Prevention of Aspirin-Induced Gastric Ulceration in Rats by α-Methyldopa and Disulfiram
Aspirin at the dose of 200 mg/kg, administered orally, produced gastric mucosal ulceration in 100% of rats after 4 h. Pretreatment of animals with α-methyldopa at the doses of 25 and 50 mg/kg and/or d
Salicylate damage to the gastric mucosal barrier.
TLDR
A standard scientific method of studying any system is to introduce a perturbation and to see what happens, and because salicylates — acetylsalicylic and salicylic acids – destroy the gastric mucosal barrier, the Gastric mucosa contains a barrier that prevents the digestive juice from attacking the wall of the stomach.

Effect of nicotine and caffeine pretreatment on the gastric mucosal damage induced by aspirin, phenylbutazone, and reserpine in rats.
TLDR
The enhancement of gastric ulcers in the groups pretreated with the combination of nicotine and caffeine followed by one of the drugs was significantly greater than in thegroups treated by either of them alone. Expand
