Abstract: A<b> </b>significant decrease in alkaline phosphatase (AP) activity and mucosal thickness and increase in ulcer index (UI) was observed in aspirin treated stomach and duodenum of albino rats. However, pretreatment with <i style="">C. pepo</i> fruit pulp extract for 14 consecutive days showed increase in AP activity and mucosal thickness along with decrease in UI, suggesting gastro-duodenal protective and anti-ulcerogenic properties of <i style="">C. pepo</i>.
