  author={Ayesha Yousaf and Shaista Ali and Zahra Haider Bokhari and Attiya Khalid and Muhammad Amin Sheikh},
Background: To study the histomorphological changes in gastric mucosa induced in mice by Indomethacin and to assess the protective effect of vitamin E with variable duration of drugs. Methods: In this experimental study 48 adult albino mice were divided randomly in to four groups A, B, C and D each group comprising of 12 mice. Group A was the control group. Group B was given Vitamin E 400mg/kg. Group C was given Indomethacin 25mg/kg and Group D was given a combination of Indomethacin and… Expand


Adaptation of Rat Gastric Mucosa exposed to Indomethacin: A Histological Study
Indomethacin given in a maximum therapeutic dose initially induces lesions in stomach but almost no effects are noted when the duration of drug administration is prolonged, which is due to adaptation of gastric mucosa to the continued use of the drug. Expand
The Protective Effect of Vitamins E and C on The Gastric Mucosal Barrier in Rats Irradiated With X-Rays
The results indicate that vitamins E and C protect the gastric mucosal barrier against X- rays. Expand
Mechanisms of increased gastric protection after NSAID-administration in rats consuming virgin olive oil diets
This study demonstrates the beneficial role played by EVOO enriched diets with a reduction of pro-inflammatory mediators and an increase of mucus secretion and apoptotic responses. Expand
Histological changes in parts of foregut of rat after indomethacin administration.
It is suggested that indomethacin given in a maximum therapeutic dose, initially induces lesions in stomach pylorus and proximal duodenum but almost no effects were noted when duration of the drug administration was prolonged. Expand
Vitamin E protects against stress‐induced gastric mucosal lesions in rats more effectively than vitamin C
The results indicate that orally administered VE protects against WIRS‐induced gastric mucosal lesions in rats more effectively than orally administered VC, and suggest that the administered V E protects against gastrics mucosal lesion development through its antioxidant and anti‐inflammatory actions in the Gastric mucosa in the same way as the administered VC.

Protection by liquorice in alcohol induced gastric mucosa damage.
2 Abstract: Gastric diseases are widespread among the inhabitants of many countries and alcohol consumption is a known precipitating factor. This study investigates the protective effect ofExpand
The rodenticidal effect of indomethacin: pathogenesis and pathology
Indomethacin appears to cause widespread endothelial and mucosal damage, haemorrhage and vascular thrombosis, leading to ischaemic necrosis, with subsequent multiple organ failure and death, in mice and rats. Expand
Indomethacin inactivates gastric peroxidase to induce reactive-oxygen-mediated gastric mucosal injury and curcumin protects it by preventing peroxidase inactivation and scavenging reactive oxygen.
It is suggested that curcumin protects gastric damage by efficient removal of H( 2)O(2) and H (2)O-derived ()OH by preventing peroxidase inactivation by indomethacin. Expand
Role of prostaglandins in maintaining gastric mucus-cell permeability against acid exposure.
It is suggested that when gastric-surface mucus cells are exposed to acid, gastric epithelial permeability decreases rapidly to inhibit acid back-diffusion. Expand
Prostaglandins, NSAIDs, and gastric mucosal protection: why doesn't the stomach digest itself?
Better understanding of the mechanisms through which the stomach is able to resist injury in the presence of luminal irritants is helping to drive the development of safer anti-inflammatory drugs, and therapies to accelerate and improve the quality of ulcer healing. Expand
