ABSTRACT

Ficus religiosa is being used in Ayurvedic medicine for the treatment of various diseases including gastric ulcer. The present study was undertaken to validate the anti-ulcer potential of the ethanolic extract of the stem bark of F. religiosa against aspirin – induced gastric ulcer. The plant extract (200 mg /kg) reduced the ulcer and also increased the pH of gastric acid while at the same time reduced the volume of gastric juice and total acidity. In conclusion, the present study provides preliminary data on the anti-ulcer potential of F. religiosa stem bark and supports the traditional use of the plant for the treatment of gastric ulcer.

Keywords: KEYWORDS: Gastric ulcer, aspirin induced, Ficus religiosa, ayurvedic medicine, anti-ulcer potential.
