BCT attenuates gastric mucosa injury induced by absolute ethanol treatment. (A) Representative photographs of the gastric mucosa, (B) quantitative analysis for gastric mucosal injury. Absolute ethanol induced hemorrhages and hyperemia in the gastric mucosa. By contrast, BCT attenuated the gastric mucosal injury induced by absolute ethanol. In quantitative analysis, BCT reduced the elevated gastric injury index induced by absolute ethanol treatment. NC, normal control; EtOH, absolute ethanol treatment group; Ome, absolute ethanol + omeprazole (50 mg/kg); BCT, absolute ethanol + BCT (400 mg/kg). ##Significantly different at p < 0.01 compared with the control group, *Significantly different at p < 0.05 compared with the EtOH group.
