|Abstract:||<b><i>Sargassum polycystum</i> C. Ag.</b>, a marine brown alga found in Gulf of Mannar, Rameswaram, was collected by researchers at Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, University of Madras, Chennai to evaluate efficacy of its hot water extract against HCl-ethanol induced gastric mucosal injury in rats. Effect of pre-treatment with hot water extract of marine brown alga <b><i>S</i>. <i>polycystum</i> </b>(100 mg/kg body wt, orally for period of 15 days) on HCl-ethanol (150 mM of HCl-ethanol mixture containing 0.15 N HCl in 70% v/v ethanol given orally) induced gastric mucosal injury in rats was examined with respect to lipid peroxides, antioxidant enzyme status, acid/pepsin and glycoproteins in the gastric mucosa.|
