Figure 1 Scheme representing various steps of ulcer pathogenicity and multi-step anti-ulcer action by SRPP (•-); (•) and (-) represents phenolic and polysaccharide portions of SRPP respectively. Swim/Ethanol stress leading to OS (1) and liberation of FR (2). FR upregulated H+, K+-ATPase (3) and induced oxidative damage to mucosa (4) leading to mucosal damage (5).
