Search for an Herbal Medicine: Anti-Ulcer Activity of Methanolic Extract of Haldina cordifolia.
In this study, we were determining the anti-ulcer effect of Haldina cordifolia in NSAID induced rats. The methanolic extract was given orally 100mg/kg and 50 mg/kg body weight at 8 hrs interval. Diclofenac sodium was used as the inducing agent for the ulcer. The result was satisfactory as there is a marked improvement in the ulcerated part. The extract was able to decrease the acid secretion in stomach and increase the mucosal damage.
