Anti ulcer effects of Clausena excavata

What is it about?

Gastric ulcers are common problems among individuals of all ages. Here we explored the potential anti-ulcer activity of a natural plant (C. excavata) against the development of gastric ulcer as well as progression of the condition in model rats. The methanolic extract of the plant showed promising preventive effects against ulcer development and resolution.

Why is it important?

The use of natural alternative therapies that are safe and effective need to be explored in order to identify better and more effective drug candidates.
