The effect of ethanolic extract of seeds of Annona reticulata, was investigated in rats to evaluate antiulcer activity by using pyloric ligation ulcer model and the phytochemical studies were also carried out. The parameters taken for antiulcer activity were the total gastric volume secretion, total acidity, pH and ulcer index. Ethanolic extract of seeds of Annona reticulata significantly (p < 0.001) decreased gastric volume secretion (2.1 mL), total acidity (92 meq/L/100 g), and ulcer index (33.4).
