The 4 groups were: Vehicle (1 ml/kg, p.o), indomethacin (100 mg/kg, p.o), Plantacid® suspension (2.7 ml/kg, p.o), and Ranitidine (100 mg/kg, p.o) groups respectively. The treatment was given 60 minutes before the administration of indomethacin. Effect of Plantacid® suspension was studied by calculating the ulcer score, total number of ulcers, ulcer index and percentage inhibition. The results showing p values
