Summary of "Spirulina ameliorates aspirin-induced gastric ulcer in albino mice by alleviating oxidative stress and inflammation."

Aspirin is a commonly prescribed non steroidal anti-inflammatory drug, but its prolonged use injures the gastric mucosa. The present study was carried out to evaluate the ameliorative effect of spirulina against aspirin-induced gastric ulcer in albino mice. Gastric ulcer was induced by oral administration of aspirin (500 mg/kg bw). Spirulina (250 and 500 mg/kg bw) was given orally for 3 days after the induction of gastric ulcer. Spirulina ameliorated aspirin-induced gastric ulcer by improving the gross morphology, histology and mucous layer of gastric tissue, augmenting the endogenous enzymatic and non-enzymatic antioxidants (reduced glutathione, glutathione peroxidase, glutathione reductase, superoxide dismutase and catalase) and the cytoprotective marker (COX-1), and by alleviating tissue levels of the lipid peroxidation marker (malondialdehyde) and inflammatory mediators (TNF-α, COX-2 and NO). In conclusion, spirulina has a therapeutic potential in aspirin-induced gastric injury by alleviating oxidative stress and inflammation.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Asthmatic adverse reaction (e.g., BRONCHOCONSTRICTION) to conventional NSAIDS including aspirin use.

Ulcer that occurs in the regions of the GASTROINTESTINAL TRACT which come into contact with GASTRIC JUICE containing PEPSIN and GASTRIC ACID. It occurs when there are defects in the MUCOSA barrier. The common forms of peptic ulcers are associated with HELICOBACTER PYLORI and the consumption of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS).

A synthetic methylprostaglandin E1 analog that reduces gastric acid secretion and enhances the gastric mucus-bicarbonate barrier. It is effective in the therapy of gastric ulcers and gives significant protection against NSAID-induced gastric mucosal damage. The drug also prevents cyclosporin A-induced damage to endocrine and exocrine pancreatic secretions. It shows a low order of acute toxicity and there is no evidence of embryotoxicity, fetotoxicity, teratogenicity, or mutagenicity in animal studies.

Ulceration of the GASTRIC MUCOSA due to contact with GASTRIC JUICE. It is often associated with HELICOBACTER PYLORI infection or consumption of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS).

That portion of the stomach remaining after gastric surgery, usually gastrectomy or gastroenterostomy for cancer of the stomach or peptic ulcer. It is a common site of cancer referred to as stump cancer or carcinoma of the gastric stump.
