Aim of the study was to investigate Gastroprotective and anti-secretory effect of Pep-Up Tablet on pyloric ligation-induced gastric ulcer model in rats. Pep-Up Tablet is an Ayurvedic proprietary formulation which is manufactured and marketed by Vasu Healthcare Pvt. Ltd., Vadodara. The selected animals were divided into two groups and each group consisted of six animals. Group-I was considered as disease control and Group-II was as test drug (Pep-Up Tablet) treated group. Pep-Up Tablet (200 mg/kg/day, p.o.) was administered for 7 days by oral route in Group-II. Pep-Up Tablet was studied for its effect on ulcer index, gastric wall secretory parameters and mucin activity. Pretreatment of Pep-Up Tablet showed significant reduction in ulcer index, gastric acid secretion and pepsin activity. Pep-Up Tablet significantly increased mucin activity (TC:TP ratio) as well which was due to significant increase in the total carbohydrate content. From the available data of present study, it can be concluded that Pep-Up Tablet plays important role mainly on inhibition of acid secretion and in increase of mucin secretion which in turn enhances the stability of gastric mucosal barrier. Pep-Up Tablet provided significant gastric cytoprotection against pyloric ligation-induced gastric ulceration in rats.
