The purpose of this study was to identify the CNS neurons that express Fos protein after i.p. injection of ulcergenic drug cinchophen (300 mg/kg). This was done in unanesthetized Wistar rats with careful physiological controls. The population of Fos-immunoreactive (Fos-ir) neurons was the largest in the medial parvicellular part of the paraventricular nucleus of the hypothalamus (PVH). Distribution of Fos-ir neurons in the PVH corresponds with that of the parvicellular neurons in the PVH which secrete corticotropin-releasing hormone (CRH). This study strongly suggests that the cinchophen-induced peptic ulcer may originate in excitation of the CRH-secreting neurons in the parvicellular part of the PVH.
