Keywords:Peptic ulcer, Curcuma longa, leaves, methanolic extract
Peptic ulcer is one of the world's major gastro-intestinal disorders, embracing both gastric and duodenal ulcers, and affecting 10%of the world population. a common disorder of the GIT system, which causes much discomfort to patients, disrupting their daily routines and causes mental agony. Here, present study was carried out to investigate antiulcer activity of methanol extract of Curcuma Longa leaves (family Zingiberaceae) in pylorus ligated. The result of whole study has been concluded that methanolic extract of curcuma longa leaves had two formulations which are 20 mg/kg and 50 mg/kg both are effective against paracetamol induced ulcers. The evaluation of ulcer index was conformed the effectiveness of ulcer protective and healing property of methanolic extract of curcuma longa.
