3 Abstract: Aqueous extracts of barley grains (Hordeum vulgare L.) and fenugreek seeds (Trigonella foenum- graecum L.) were administered to a group of Albino rats (n= 42) previously subjected to aspirin at 400mg/kg b.w., for gastric ulcer induction. Two levels of intakes were used 13 ml/kg b.w. (L ) and 26 ml /kg b.w. (L ) of 12 each extract as well as a mixture of both (1:1 v:v) of L. Six rats were used for each treatment .Treated rats with 1 aqueous extracts showed significant decline in…

Effect of Aqueous Licorice (Glycyrrhiza glabra) Extract on Gastric Ulcer Induced by Aspirin in Rats

The results of this study suggest that licorice can be used for the treatment of peptic ulcer and can protect the stomach against nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs induced ulcers.

Treatment of Gastric Ulcers with Fenugreek Seed Extract; In Vitro, In Vivo and In Silico Approaches

The objective of the present study was to evaluate the antiulcer or gastroprotective potential of fenugreek seed aqueous extract using in vitro and in vivo models and to elucidate the possible


Aspirin administration caused marked gastric damage in negative control group which was prevented in ranitidine and Nigella sativa extracts treated groups significantly, and the protective effect was maximum with runningitidine followed by ethanolic extract and then aqueous extract in dose dependent manner.

Comparative study on the effectiveness of gum arabic Acacia senegal and Moringa oleifera extracts on prevention of peptic ulcer in the experimental rats

The results indicated that rats in groups G6 and G3 had the highest increase in number of their WBC and in their HP as compared to (G+), while Histological study revealed the absence of histopathological changes in G3 and G6, while other groups showed mucosal vascular congestion and submucosal edema with inflammatory cell infiltration.

Evaluation of antiulcer activity of indole-3-carbinol and/or omeprazole on aspirin-induced gastric ulcer in rats

The results of this study suggested that administration of antiulcer natural substances such as I3C in combination with the perused treatment such as OMP is a very important initiative in the development of new strategies in ulcer healing.

Therapeutic Uses of Fenugreek (Trigonella Foenum-Graecum L.)

Fenugreek was reported to have gastroprotective effect, antimicrobial activities, anticancer effect, used in treatment of arthritis, reducing weight, increasing milk production and may regulate hyperthyroidism.

Effects of Fenugreek Seed on the Severity and Systemic Symptoms of Dysmenorrhea

Prescription of fenugreek seed powder during menstruation can reduce the severity of dysmenorrhea, according to data, which suggest that prescription of the plant with anti-inflammato-ry and analgesic properties should be considered as a treatment for menstruation-related pain.

Protective Effect of Trigonella foenum-graecum and Foeniculum vulgare Mature Leaf Against t-BHP Induced Toxicity in Primary Rat Hepatocytes

The results suggest cytoprotective, antioxidant and hepatoprotective properties of TFG and FV leaf extracts which may be used in the form of dietary component and also in formulations against liver diseases.

Therapeutic Profile of Fenugreek (Trigonella foenum-

An insight into the therapeutic efficacy of this Unani herb of great merit is provided through extensive literature review and critical analysis of various experimental as well as clinical trials pertinent to the subject.



Hypolipidaemic Effect of Fenugreek Seeds: a Chronic Study in Non‐insulin Dependent Diabetic Patients

Results indicate the beneficial effect of fenugreek seeds in diabetic subjects and result in a significant reduction of total cholesterol, LDL and VLDL cholesterol and triglyceride levels.

Involvement of reactive oxygen species in gastric ulceration: protection by melatonin.

The role of reactive oxygen species in gastric ulceration, drugs controlling them with their merits and demerits and, the role of melatonin, a pineal hormone in protecting the gastric lesions are described.

Therapeutic applications of fenugreek.

Preliminary animal and human trials suggest possible hypoglycemic and antihyperlipidemic properties of oral fenugreek seed powder.

Diets containing barley significantly reduce lipids in mildly hypercholesterolemic men and women.

The addition of barley to a healthy diet may be effective in lowering total and LDL cholesterol in both men and women.

Comparative study of the safety and efficacy of ebrotidine versus ranitidine and placebo in the prevention of piroxicam-induced gastroduodenal lesions.

The results of this study showed that the most powerful protective effect against mucosal gastric lesions induced by piroxicam was achieved with 800 mg/day of ebrotidine.

Role of active oxygen, lipid peroxidation, and antioxidants in the pathogenesis of gastric mucosal injury induced by indomethacin in rats.

It is suggested that active oxygen species and lipid peroxidation play an important part in the pathogenesis of gastric mucosal injury induced by indomethacin, and that the decreased glutathione peroxidase activity aggravated the injury due to accelerated accumulation of hydrogen peroxide and lipidperoxides in the gastricucosal cell.

Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs

Bias is common in the design and analysis of the trials, to such an extent that a systematic review identified false significant findings favouring new drugs over control drugs in 6% of trials.

Long-Term Intake of Dietary Fiber and Decreased Risk of Cholecystectomy in Women

Increased long-term consumption of dietary fiber, particularly insoluble fiber, can reduce risk of cholecystectomy in women, and soluble fiber was significantly associated with a reduced risk.
