Title

GASTROPROTECTIVE EFFECT OF HYDROALCOHOLIC EXTRACT OF ALOE BUETTNERI

Pages

Abstract

ALOE BUETTNERI A. Berger is commonly used in traditional Togolese medicine to treat inflammatory and gastric ULCERs. The present study examined the gastro-protection effect of the hydro-alcoholic extract of A. buettneri on mucus production and gastric pH. A gastric ULCER is induced by ethanol 95° alone (1 mL/kg body weight), after pre-treatment with indomethacin (300 mg/kg) or by utilising L-NAME (40 mg/kg IV). In addition gastric mucus was removed by scraping and subsequently weighed. The experiment focused entirely on rats that had been subjected to fasting. The hydro-alcoholic extract of A. buettneri (500 mg/kg) significantly inhibited ULCERs that were induced by ethanol, indomethacin or L-NAME pre-treatment. A. buettneri was shown to increase the production of gastric mucus. Furthermore L-ARGININE significantly decreased the size of the induced ULCERs. The results achieved in the study carried out suggest that A. buettneri posses gastro-protective properties.
