Anti-ulcerogenic activity of ayurvedic preparation Taramanduram – a preliminary study
NR Pillai, C Seshadri, G Santhakumari
Taramanduram a compound ayurvedic preparation used for peptic ulcer was investigated for anti ulcerogenic activity against gastric and duodenal ulcer models in rats and guinea pigs. The drug in a large single dose of 480 mg/kg (p.o.) showed significant protection against Shay ulcers. It markedly reduced the incidence of drug induced duodenal lessions. It is neither antisecretory nor antipeptic and hence the anti-ulcerogenic effect may be due to some no specific activity.
