Abstract

Background and Aim: Ulcerative colitis is a chronic inflammatory disease of the colon and rectum. Although the precise etiology of ulcerative colitis remains unknown, it is believed to involve an abnormal host response to endogenous or environmental antigens, genetic factors, and oxidative damage. The aim of the present study was to investigate whether heme oxygenase-1 (HO-1) induction by octreotide could protect against oxidative and inflammatory damage from induced colitis.
