Objective: To investigate the protective effect of teprenone on gastric mucosal injury induced by dual antiplatelet therapy in rats.
Methods: Healthy, specifically pathogen free SD, rats were selected and divided into 4 groups: Normal group (normal rats, without any treatment), Model group (rats received dual antiplatelet therapy: aspirin and clopidogrel), Teprenone group (rats received dual antiplatelet therapy and teprenone) and Pantoprazole group (rats received dual antiplatelet therapy and pantoprazole). The gastric mucosal blood flow, ulcer index, gastric gel mucus thickness, the levels of gastrin (Gas), prostaglandin (PG), prostaglandin E (PGE), endothelin-1 (ET-1) tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-α, interleukin (IL)-1β, IL-6 and IL-10 in serum, the levels of malondialdehyde (MDA), glutathione (GSH), superoxide dismutase (SOD) and myeloperoxidase (MPO) in the gastric mucosa, as well as the expression of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) in the rat's stomach were measured.
