Antiulcerogenic activity of borneol and its N-heterocyclic esters was investigated using indomethacin-induced gastric ulcer model. A considerable antiulcerogenic effect comparable to that shown by Omeprazole and Famotidine was found for two investigated compounds in the indomethacin-induced gastric ulcer model. Bornyl 2-piperazinoacetate, with a non-substituted piperazine moiety, showed maximum antiulcerogenic activity in the indomethacininduced gastric ulcer model and demonstrated a significant gastroprotective effect in the ethanol-induced gastric ulcer model comparable to the effect of Omeprazole.
