SEM: Standard deviation, PGE: Punica granatum peel extract, OMZ: Omeprazole, SCF: Sucralfate, CMC: Carboxymethyl cellulose, URS: Unrestraint stress, UI: Ulcer index

Therefore, the mean ulcer score and ulcer index
of SDGE were 0.
was calculated as a mean ulcer value of each animal.
To assess the effect of maprotiline on macroscopic features in the rat model of colitis, two parameters including colon wet weight and ulcer index
were evaluated in both normal and reserpinised (6 mg/kg, i.
30) Administration of strawberry extract in rats with alcohol-induced ulcers significantly reduced the animals' ulcer index
, in large part by inhibiting peroxidation of cell membrane lipids.
Subsequently the stomachs were incised along the greater curvature and the ulcer index
small size, incomplete reporting of data, varied outcomes) comparing chlorhexidine with placebo reported that in 2 of 3 studies that measured the ulcer index
, chlorhexidine reduced the index more than placebo (eg, 0.
The stomach was opened and the ulcer index
was determined (23).
The sum of all the lesions/ulcer in all the animals for each group (total ulcer score) was used to calculate the ulcer index
Data of ulcer index
was analyzed by non-parametric ANOVA while one-way analysis of variance (ANOVA) was used for statistical comparison of other results, followed by Newman-Keul's multiple comparison test.
Mean scores for each group were calculated and expressed as ulcer index
The stomachs were cut open along the greater curvature rinsed with normal saline for the scoring of ulcer index
