In CRS rats, ulcer index (UI) in CRS rats was calculated by adding the number of ulcer per stomach plus the severity of ulcer converted as one plus per stomach by a person unaware of the experimental protocol, [12] while in EtOH treated rats, UI was scored, based on the product of length and width of the ulcers present in the glandular portion of the stomach [mm.
The mean ulcer score for each animal was expressed as the ulcer index (Fahmy et al.
Animals treated with CO exhibited a low ulcer index as compared to control animals in three models.
The lesions of a gastric ulcer usually were received as Ulcer Index, which was converted from ulcer areas, and gastric ulcer area ([mm.
For each specimen ulcer index was calculated using the following equation [29]:
Animal studies demonstrate that ellagic acid reduced the standard ulcer index by 59%, while accelerating ulcer healing through induction of important growth factors.
Subsequently, the stomach was incised along the greater curvature and the ulcer index was calculated.
Beclomethasone also decreased the ulcer index (number of ulcers each day over time) in 2 of 4 RCTS (eg, 13 of 15 patients [drug] vs 0 of 15 patients [placebo]; P<.
01) reduction in gastric volume, free acidity and ulcer index as compared to control.
Erosions formed on the glandular portions of the stomach were counted and the ulcer index calculated as described by Main and Whittle [20].
Administration of indomethacin exhibits extreme levels of ulcer index (UI) and myeloperoxidase (MPO) activity.
