04/01/2002 - "In this study we compared the effects of intragastric (i.g.) administration of melatonin and its precursor, L-tryptophan, with or without concurrent treatment with luzindole, a selective antagonist of melatonin MT2 receptors, on healing of chronic gastric ulcers induced by serosal application of acetic acid (ulcer area 28 mm2). "
12/01/2009 - "Treatment with luzindole, an antagonist of Mel(2) receptors, or with L-NNA, the NO-synthase inhibitor, significantly attenuated melatonin- and L-tryptophan-induced protection and the acceleration of ulcer healing and the accompanying increase in the GBF and luminal content of NO. We conclude that 1) exogenous melatonin and that released from the L-tryptophan attenuate lesions induced by topical irritant such as ethanol and WRS via interaction with MT(2) receptors and due to an enhancement of gastric microcirculation, probably mediated by NO and PG derived from cNOS, iNOS and COX-2 overexpression and activity, and 2) the pineal gland plays an important role in the limitation of WRS-induced gastric lesions and acceleration of ulcer healing via releasing melatonin predominately at night time, that exerts gastroprotective and ulcer healing actions."
01/01/2014 - "Blockade of MT2 receptors by luzindole, significantly attenuated melatonin- and L-tryptophan-induced protection and increased the speed of ulcer healing and these effects were accompanied by an increase in the GBF and luminal content of NO suggesting that melatonin exhibits gastroprotection and hyperemia via activation of MT2 receptors and release of NO. The accumulated evidence indicates that the melatonin-induced gastroprotection and the enhancement in healing rate of gastric ulcers may involve the gastroprotective factors derived from the activation of PG/COX and NO/NOS systems as well as gastrin which also was shown to exhibit protective and trophic effects in the upper GItract.
