R&cently, we showed using rat ethanol-induced gastric lesion technique that Patoiadi decoction has strong gastroprotective activity when given orally. The aim of this study was to investigate whether semisolid preparation of this decoction, namely (PG) has gastroprotective activity when assessed with the same technique and method of administration. Three different concentrations of the PG were used: 30%, 15% and 7-5%. The results show that PG has overall gastroprotective activity but is less effective than PD (in terms of both number and length of gastric haemorrhgic lesions
