[Gastroprotective properties of mexidol and hypoxen].Eksp Klin Farmakol 2010; 73(5):15-8EK
Experimental damage in the stomach mucosa of test rats was modeled by acetylsalicylic acid (aspirin-induced ulcerogenesis). The number of ulcers and the total area of erosive injury in the mucous membrane were studied. Prophylactic treatment with mexidol and hypoxen in a daily dose of 50 mg/kg reduces the aspirin-induced damage of stomach mucosa. The gastroprotective properties of drugs are probably related to their antioxidant and antihypoxant effects.
