Antiulcerogenic effect of ethanolic root extract of Rubus ellipticus was studied in HCl/ethanol and aspirin plus pylorus ligation model. The extract reduced ulcer area and ulcer index in HCl/ethanol model and reduced ulcerative lesions, free and total acidity, total proteins but raised total carbohydrates
and the pH of gastric juice in aspirin plus pylorus ligation model and hence, possess significant antiulcer activity
