The anti ulcer effects of aqueous, chloroform and ethanol extracts prepared from the Ipomoea aquatica forsk leaves was evaluated in rats employing the pylorus ligation, stress induced and aspirin induced models. The parameters taken to assess anti ulcer activity were volume of gastric juice, free acidity, total acidity and ulcer index. The results indicated that chloroform extract significantly (p<0.001) decreased the volume of gastric acid secretions, free acidity and total acidity and ulcer index.
