ABSTRACT

The effect of Citron (Citrus medica Linn.) fruit aqueous extract on gastric ulcers was evaluated by using Indomethacin induced ulcer model in rats. Citron Fruit Aqueous Extract was administered orally at two different doses of 250mg/kg and 500mg/kg. Both the doses showed a significant reduction in ulcer formation and increase the inhibition of gastric lesions. The results suggest that, the fruits of Citron possess significant antiulcer activity against Indomethacin induced ulcers in rats and the antiulcer activity could be due to the presence of flavonoids as these compounds have well documented antiulcer activity.

Keywords: Citron, Gastric ulcer, Indomethacin, Flavonoids.
