Abstract

The effects of an aqueous root extract from Rumex patientia (D-1) compared to COX-2 selective inhibitors on indomethacine and ethanol induced stomach ulcers were investigated. Adult male Wistar albino rats, weighing between 185-200 g were used. It was determined that D-1 does not show its gastroprotective activity via a COX enzyme in indomethacine induced ulcers. Antioxidant effects protect the gastrointestinal system. The effect of D-1 in ethanol induced ulcers may also be due to its antioxidant effect.
