Atrophic gastritis (AG) is a common and possibly precancerous digestive tract disease. The development of drugs with the effect of preventing precancerous lesions draws the eyes of global researchers. Creative Biolabs has extensive experience in the development of therapeutic antibodies and cell-based therapy for autoimmune diseases. We are committed to helping you develop new drugs for AG.
AG is a chronic disorder characterized by the decrease or the disappearance of the oxyntic glands, which could be replaced by fibrosis, or most frequently by pseudo-pyloric or intestinal metaplasia (IM). The lack of gastric acid and intrinsic factor production could lead to malabsorption of micronutrients such as iron and vitamin B12 and consequent anaemia.

A study has shown that Qilianshupi decoction (QLSP) is effective in the treatment of chronic atrophic gastritis (CAG). Compared with the group treated with vitacoenzyme, QLSP can significantly improve the pathological changes. The clinical data showed that QLSP can inhibit the destruction of gastric mucosal epithelium by H. pylori and significantly control H. pylori infection.
Indirect studies also indicate the therapeutic effect of QLSP. The wild-type p53 gene is a tumor suppressor gene. When p53 gene mutation occurs, uncontrolled regulation of cell cycle mediated by p53, which led to the disorder of DNA molecular program, genetic instability, and polyploid, the malignant proliferation of cells. There was no mutant p53 expression in normal gastric mucosal cells. However, during the process of chronic atrophic gastritis to intestinal metaplasia and dysplasia, we can see mutant p53 expression increasing. After QLSP treatment, mutant P53 protein expression decreased, which can confirm that QLSP significantly inhibited the intestinal metaplasia of CAG.
