The methanolic extract of the leaves of C. mucronata was screened for anti-ulcer properties using animal models. On isolated guinea pig ileum the extract inhibited contractions evoked by acetylcholine, histamine and serotonin. The extract remarkably decreased the propulsive movement of gastrointestinal content. The extract exhibited significant anti-ulcer activity protecting rats from indomethacin, histamine and stress-induced ulcers. It inhibited the growth of both Gram-positive and Gram…

Antiulcer Properties of the Ethanol Root Extract of Cissampelos mucronata.

Results indicate that the ethanol root extract of C. mucronata exhibited anti-ulcer property especially against indomethacin-induced ulcer, and Cytoprotection and antispasmodic mechanisms of action may be responsible for the antiulcer properties.

Effect of methanolic leaf extract of Cissampelos mucronata A. Rich against indomethacin induced ulcer in rats.

Five fractions isolated from the methanolic leaf extract of Cissampelos mucronata A. Rich showed varying degree of protection against ulcer induced by indomethacin; the order of protection being F1>F4>F5>F2>F3.

Gastro-Protective Effects of the Leaf Extract and Fractions of Fleurya aestuans L (Urticaceae)

The leaf extracts of F. aestuans possess gatroprotective properties that could justify folklore uses of the plant in peptic ulcer diseases, and are significantly protected against ulcers induced by cold restraint (stress) in rats.

Anti-peptic Ulcer Activity of TLC Separated Fractions of Root Extract of Astilbe rivularis in rats

It was found out that one TLC separated fraction of root extract of Astilbe rivularis exerted anti peptic ulcer activity against all the models studied, which was less than that of omeprazole.

ANTI PEPTIC ULCER ACTIVITY OF THE LEAVES OF Amaranthus spinosus L. IN RATS

It was found out that the leaves of Amaranthus spinosus L. exerted anti peptic ulcer activity against ethanol and cysteamine induced peptic Ulcerations but the activity was less than that of omeprazole.

Comparative Evaluation of Anti Gastric Ulcer Activity of Root, Stem and Leaves of Amaranthus spinosus Linn. in Rats

Root of the plant, however, showed highest activity which was comparable to that of omeprazole, and significant anti gastric ulcer activity was noted in root, stem and leaves of Amaranthus spinosus Linn.

Emblica officinalis Fruits Afford Protection Against Experimental Gastric Ulcers in Rats

The results of the present study suggested the novel cytoprotective activity of E. officinalis fruits on gastric mucosal cells was found to be better than that of ranitidine (50 mg/kg).

Antiulcer Activity of an Isolated Compound (SP-1) from the Seeds of Nirmali (Strychnor potatorum Linn.)

An active compound (SP-1) was isolated from the seeds of Nirmali (Strychnor potatorum Linn.) and its antiulcer activity was studied against ethanol, hydrochloric acid, indomethacin, stress and

Anti Gastric Ulcer Activity of Amaranthus spinosus Linn. Leaves in Aspirin Induced Gastric Ulcer in Rats and the Underlying Mechanism

Problems: Search for new drugs of gastric ulcer. Experimental approach: Anti gastric ulcer activity of Amaranthus spinosus Linn. in aspirin induced gastric ulcers was studied in rats. Findings:

Effects of the methanol root extract of Cissampelos mucronata A. Rich on the kidney and liver of rats - a histological and biochemical study.

To determine the potential toxicologic effects of the methanol root extract of Cissampelos mucronata (A. Rich) on liver and kidney tissues, rats were used for acute and repeated toxicity studies.
