Duodenal Ulcer

Publication Title: 
Indian Journal of Experimental Biology

Biochemical and histochemical studies revealed decreased beta-glucuronidase activity in the Brunner's glands of duodenal ulcerated rats. The enzyme activity showed gradual increase during recovery. Rats treated with a mixture of Ayurvedic medicines (Glycyrrhiza glabra, Terminalia chebula, Piper longum and Shanka Bhasma) recovered faster with concomitant increase in beta-glucuronidase activity in the Brunner's glands.

Acupuncture today has more and more become accepted as an effective therapeutic method and has long overcome the savour of hypnosis and suggestion. For patients suffering from chronic pain due to a variety of conditions, particularly functional diseases, this method often proves to be the only help. We recommend to use acupuncture following extensive diagnostic measures. There is no risk for the patient; a good deal of benefit, however, can be expected.

30 patients with rapidly relapsing duodenal ulceration were studied to assess the possible benefit of hypnotherapy in relapse prevention. After the ulcer had healed on treatment with ranitidine, the drug was continued for a further 10 weeks during which time patients received either hypnotherapy or no hypnotherapy. The two randomly selected groups were comparable in terms of age, sex, smoking habits, and alcohol consumption. Follow-up of both groups of patients was continued for 12 months after the cessation of ranitidine.

Pongamia pinnata has been advocated in Ayurveda for the treatment of various inflammatory conditions and dyspepsia. The present work includes initial phytochemical screening and study of ulcer protective and healing effects of methanolic extract of seeds of P. pinnata (PPSM) in rats. Phytochemical tests indicated the presence of flavonoids in PPSM. PPSM when administered orally (po) showed dose-dependent (12.5-50 mg/kg for 5 days) ulcer protective effects against gastric ulcer induced by 2 h cold restraint stress.

To diminish the frequency of postoperative pulmonary complications following gastric resection and stay in hospital, a complex of preventive and therapeutic measures has been designed and tested in 165 patients. The complex involves early exercise, aerosol therapy, vibratory massage, heparin electrophoresis of the chest. Clinicophysiological data on respiratory function, pulmonary circulation, hemocoagulation support the effectiveness of the rehabilitation in patients after gastric resection.
