S.Poojari , R.Bhargavi , M. Mohan1,2 PG Student; Professor & Head, Department of Pharmacology, Priyadarshini College of Pharmaceutical Sciences, Narapally, Chowdaryguda (V), Ghatkesar (M), R.R.District, 500088, Andhra Pradesh Objective: To evaluate the protective effect of ethanolic extract of dried seeds of Coriandrum sativum L.
(C.sativum) in acetic acid-induced ulcerative colitis in rats.
Methods: Male Wistar rats were divided into various treatment groups (n=5). The animals were administered with
2ml of acetic acid (4% v/v) via intrarectal route to induce colitis. Prednisolone (2mg/kg) was used as a standard
drug and C.sativum was administered at a dose of 100 and 300 mg/kg p.o. Macroscopic scoring, colon weight to
length ratio, colonic superoxide dismutase (SOD), catalase (CAT), reduced glutathione (GSH), lipid peroxidation
(LPO), myeloperoxidase (MPO) levels and histopathological changes were recorded after the treatment regimen
of 11 days.
Results: Intrarectal instillation of acetic acid caused significant (P<0.05) increase in colon weight to length ratio,
LPO, and MPO levels; and significant (P<0.05) decrease in the levels of SOD, CAT and GSH levels. Pretreatment
with C.sativum (100, 300 mg/kg, p.o.) exhibited significant (P<0.05) reversal of all the above biochemical
parameters and significantly reversed the histopathological changes induced by acetic acid treatment.
Conclusion: The present investigation demonstrates the potent therapeutic value of C.sativum (100, 300 mg/kg,
p.o.) in the amelioration of experimental colitis in rats. The beneficial effect of C.sativum could be attributed to its
antioxidant effect.

patients unresponsive to or unwilling to take standard medicines. Among these alternative approaches is the Ulcerative colitis (UC) is an idiopathic Inflammatory use of food derivatives, which have the advantage of Bowel Disease (IBD) characterized by cycles of acute being relatively nontoxic. However, limited scientific inflammation, ulceration and bleeding of the colonic evidence regarding the effectiveness of these natural mucosa. IBD is a chronic, remitting relapsing derivatives, in conjunction with a lack of mechanistic disorder of the gastrointestinal tract characterized by understanding of their actions has prevented their inflammation and tissue damage. The etiology of the incorporation into the mainstream of medical care. disease although not well understood, is thought to be During the last decade, a large number of dietary multifactorial. Oxidative stress is one of the key components have been evaluated as potential biochemical features of the disease . Various chemopreventive agents . IBD patients turn to inflammatory mediators such as cyclooxygenases alternative therapies for various reasons, including (COX-1 and COX-2), tumor necrosis factor-alpha side effects or lack of effectiveness of conventional (TNF-a), interleukin-6 (IL-6), and interleukin-12 therapies, fear of surgery, presumed safety and (IL-12), the presence of highly activated effectiveness of alternative treatments, or the simple inflammatory cells such as neutrophils, dendritic desire to regain control of their deteriorating health.
cells, macrophages, and excessive production of reactive oxygen species (ROS) have been implicated Some medicinal plants reported to be effective in the in the pathogenesis of the disease . The use of treatment of UC include Azadirachta indica , medicinal plants or their active components is Moringa olifera Lam. , Ginko biloba , Hibiscus rosa becoming an increasingly attractive approach for the sinensis Linn and Curcuma longa . Some traditional treatment of various inflammatory disorders among Chinese medicines aloe vera gel, wheat grass juice, Boswellia serrata, and bovine colostrums enemas in patients with ulcerative colitis have also been used .

3.8. Histopathological examination mucosal intestinal flora . The inflammatory response Histopathological examination (40X) of colon tissue initiated by acetic acid includes activation of of rats treated with acetic acid (4%) showed cyclooxygenase and lipooxygenase pathways significant cell inflammation with loss of mucosa The most disabling feature of UC, is the episodic (30%), whereas C. sativum (100mg/kg) showed acute exacerbation. During these periods, there is an scattered round cell collection in mucosa and association between acute inflammation (presence of submucosa, and C. sativum (300mg/kg) showed near neutrophils), tissue damage and diarrhoea. to normal architecture (Figure 1) Administration of acetic acid significantly increased DISCUSSION AND CONCLUSION

Pre-treatment with The use of plants with herbal healing properties is as ethanolic extract of seeds of C.sativum (100 and old as mankind as they have been used since antiquity 300mg/kg) exhibited a decrease in the colon weight in treating various diseases of man.

It affects the distal colon portion and pathogenesis of UC in experimental animals . induces non-transmural inflammation, massive Excess production of reactive oxygen metabolites necrosis of mucosal and sub-mucosal layers, mucosal e.g., superoxide, hydroxyl radical, hydrogen edema, neutrophil infiltration of the mucosa and sub- peroxide, hypochlorous acid and oxidant derivatives mucosal ulceration. The protonated form of the acid are detected in inflamed mucosa and may be liberates protons within the intracellular space and causes massive intracellular acidification resulting in pathogenic in IBD . Intestinal mucosal damage in massive epithelial damage. Inflammation is the the IBD is related to both increased free radical pathogenesis of IBD, and several pathways are production and a low concentration of endogenous associated with inflammatory response in IBD due to antioxidant defense .

Section A) Control group treated with vehicle shows normal architecture, section B) group treated with acetic acid (4% v/v) shows significant cell inflammation, loss of mucosa (30%), section C) group treated with Prednisolone (2mg/kg) shows scattered round cell collection in mucosa and submucosa, section D) group treated with C.sativum extract (100mg/kg) shows loss of mucosa (10%), section E) group treated with C.sativum extract (300mg/kg) shows near to normal architecture.
We estimated SOD, Catalase, GSH, and LPO levels in histopathological studies. Thus in conclusion, addition to morphological changes in the colonic ethanolic extract of C.sativum (100 and 300mg/kg) tissue as an index to assess the severity of oxidative has ameliorated the effects of acetic acid in Wistar rats damage. Pretreatment with C.sativum (100mg/kg and by way of normalizing the damaged tissue, resetting 300mg/kg, p.o.) exhibited significant (P<0.05) the antioxidant levels and reversing the reversal of all the above biochemical parameters and histopathological changes induced by dose reversed the histopathological changes induced by dependent acetic acid.
