Abstract

As to earlier observations that beta-carotene prevents the development of gastric mucosal injury produced by different noxious agent, however, its cytoprotective effect can be abolished by acute surgical vagotomy. The aim of this study was to evaluate the possible correlation between the gastric mucosal cytoprotective effect of beta-carotene and its gastric mucosal level in rats treated with IND. The gastric mucosal damage was produced by the administration of IND (20 mg/kg s.c.). The instillation of beta-carotene and acute surgical vagotomy (ASV) or SHAM operation were carried out 30 min before IND treatment. The rats were sacrificed 4 h after IND application, and the number and severity of gastric mucosal erosions were noted. The blood rats was collected quantitatively, the liver and the gastric mucosa were removed, and the betacarotene and vitamin A level of the gastric mucosa, serum and liver were measured with HPLC. It was found that: 1. Beta-carotene induced gastric cytoprotection in SHAM-operated rats treated with IND but its effect disappeared after ASV. 2. Although the beta-carotene level of the gastric mucosa increased its concentration was not elevated in the serum of intact and vagotomized animals either. 3. Vitamin A Formation was not detected in the liver of animals with or without ASV. It was concluded that the lack of intake of beta-carotene into the gastric mucosa can not play etiologic role in the failure of gastric cytoprotection of rats with acute bilateral surgical vagotomy.
