The levels of hexosamine and sialic acid showed marked increase in ulcer while hexose and fucose did not show any change.However, on treatment with Cauvery 100 for 15 days, the hexosamine and sialic acid levels were brought back to normal. Asimilar result was observed in the activity of the enzyme pepsin. The hormone gastrin was increased in ulcer and was brought back to near normal levels on Cauvery 100 treatment.
