Title: Inhibition of gastric mucosal damage by methylglyoxal pretreatment in rats.
Authors: Al-Shabanah OA

Abstract: The effect of methylglyoxal pretreatment on gastric mucosal injuries caused by 80% ethanol, 25% NaCl and 0.2 M NaOH, was investigated in rats. The effects caused by pylorous ligation accumulated gastric acid secretions and ethanol-induced changes in gastric mucus secretions, levels of proteins, nucleic acid, malondialdehyde (MDA) and non-protein sulfhydryl groups were also investigated. Methylglyoxal pretreatment at oral doses of 50, 100 and 200 mg/kg body weight was found to provide a dose-dependent protection against the ulcerogenic effects of different necrotizing agents used. With the same dose regimen methylglyoxal offered significant protection against ethanol-induced damage on the parameters evaluated for histopathology. Furthermore, the pretreatment afforded a dose-dependent inhibition of pylorous ligated accumulation of gastric acid secretions and ethanol-induced depletion of stomach wall mucus, proteins, nucleic acids, NP-SH contents and an increase in the MDA levels in gastric tissue. The protective effect of methylglyoxal against ethanol-induced damage to the gastric wall mucosa may be mediated through its effect on mucous production, proteins, nucleic acids, NP-SH groups and its free-radical scavenging property under the influence of polyamines stimulated by ornithine decarboxylase activity (ODC).
