Gastro-esophageal reflux currently is widespread disorders with dangerous complications. GLP-2 is a peptide that has trophic and anti-inflammatory effects on gastrointestinal mucosa. The aim of this study was to evaluate the protective role of GLP-2 in esophageal mucosa lesion due to perfusion acid-pepsin. Thirty-six male rats were used in this study and divided into six groups. They were control, acid-pepsin, GLP-2 20μg, GLP-2 30μg, GLP-2 40μg and GLP-2 50μg/kg groups. Esophageal blood flow, plasma NO metabolite, esophageal tissue NO metabolites and histological study of esophagus were performed as indicators of esophageal damage following acid-pepsin perfusion. Results showed that GLP-2 significantly increased plasma and tissue NO metabolites in comparison to acid-pepsin group. Also histological study showed significantly fewer lesions in the most effective dose GLP-2 30μg in comparison to acid-pepsin group, our results show that GLP-2 could be useful for the treatment of esophageal in animal model.
