Hit, Lead & Candidate Discovery 
Gastroprotection of Calein D against Ethanol-Induced Gastric Lesions in Mice: Role of Prostaglandins, Nitric Oxide and Sulfhydryls
The mechanism of action of calein D does not involve NO, prostaglandins or sulfhydryl compounds, and was more potent than carbenoxolone, the reference drug. Expand
Gastroprotective Effect of Juanislamin on Ethanol-Induced Gastric Lesions in Rats: Role of Prostaglandins, Nitric Oxide and Sulfhydryl Groups in the Mechanism of Action
Juanislamin protected the gastric mucosa from ethanol-induced damage, and its mechanism of action apparently does not involve prostaglandins, nitric oxide and/or sulfhydryl groups. Expand
Chemistry and Biology of Selected Mexican Medicinal Plants.
The chapter shows that there is need to conduct additional clinical studies on herbal drugs, in particular because the longstanding traditional evidence for their safety is not always sufficient to assure their rational use. Expand


Gastroprotective flavonoid constituents from Oroxylum indicum Vent.
Two new flavonoid glycosides are identified in the stem bark of Oroxylum indicum along with seven known compounds, which were tested for their ulcer protective effects against various gastric ulceritis inducing models in rats. Expand
The effects of baicalein on gastric mucosal ulcerations in mice: Protective pathways and anti-secretory mechanisms.
There is convincing evidence that baicalein could be used as a cytoprotective (preventive effect) and anti-ulcerogenic (anti-secretory effect) agent in the gastric ulcers. Expand
Gastroprotective effect of cyanidin 3-glucoside on ethanol-induced gastric lesions in rats.
The results suggest that the gastroprotective effect of C3G removes the ethanol-induced lipid peroxides and free radicals and that it may offer a potential remedy for the treatment of gastric lesions. Expand
Protective role of nitric oxide in indomethacin-induced gastric ulceration by a mechanism independent of gastric acid secretion.
A new pathway for the potential treatment of NSAID gastric ulceration through modulation of NO synthesis is created, regardless of the effect on gastric acidity. Expand
Preconditioning by sesquiterpene lactone enhances H2O2-induced Nrf2/ARE activation.
It is suggested that preconditioning by sesquiterpene lactone may enhance activation of the Nrf2/ARE pathway and induction of phase II detoxification/antioxidant enzymes upon oxidative stress, thereby resulting in increased resistance to oxidative damage. Expand
Protective effects of pogostone from Pogostemonis Herba against ethanol-induced gastric ulcer in rats.
Results strongly indicate that PO could exert a gastro-protective effect against gastric ulceration, and the underlying mechanism might be associated with the stimulation of PGE2, improvement of antioxidant and anti-inflammatory status, as well as preservation of NP-SH. Expand
Dillapiole, Isolated from Peperomia pellucida, Shows Gastroprotector Activity against Ethanol-Induced Gastric Lesions in Wistar Rats
Dillapiole was identified as the most active compound in this extract of P. pellucida using an ethanol-induced gastric ulcer experimental rat model and suggests that the gastroprotective mechanism of action of dillapIOle does not involve prostaglandins, NO or sulfhydryl groups. Expand
Inhibition of Preadipocyte Differentiation by Germacranolides from Calea urticifolia in 3T3-L1 Cells
Results indicate that germacranolides isolated from Calea urticifolia are the specific inhibitors of preadipocyte differentiation. Expand
Proton pump inhibitor and histamine 2 receptor antagonist use and vitamin B12 deficiency.
Previous and current gastric acid inhibitor use was significantly associated with the presence of vitamin B12 deficiency and these findings should be considered when balancing the risks and benefits of using these medications. Expand
