It has been suggested that superoxide radicals play an important role in the pathogenesis of gastric mucosal lesions after ischemia. To prove a participation of O2- in gastric mucosal lesion formation, diethyldithiocarbamate (DDC), an inhibitor of Cu,Zn-super-oxide dismutase (SOD), was injected into rats and its ulcerogenicity was examined. Subcutaneous injection of DDC was employed, because of high mortality after intraperitoneal injection of the drug. At 7 h after the injection of the drug, many ulcers appeared in the stomach, with suppression of SOD activities in the gastric mucosa, suggesting the participation of O2- in ulcer formation in the stomach.
