The gastroprotective effect of a turmeric acetone extract (TAE) (L. [Zingiberaceae]) was evaluated and compared against its major curcuminoids; curcumin (CUR), demethoxycurcumin (DMC) and bisdemethoxycurcumin (BDMC). Additionally, to demonstrate the importance of the metabolites' ratio in the extract on the synergistic effect, different mixtures were evaluated. An ethanol-induced gastric injury model was used to evaluate the gastroprotection activity in Wistar rats. The pharmacologic interaction analysis was performed using themethod. Thecalculated at 0.5 of affected fraction () for the TAE indicated a synergistic interaction between its components. However, when the proportion of curcuminoids changed from 3.7:1:10 in TAE to a 1:1:1 ratio, theimplied an antagonistic effect. The binary combinations of curcuminoids (1:1) also showed an antagonistic interaction. The results of this work suggest that the proportion of curcuminoids in the TAE is crucial for the gastroprotective effect against ethanol-induced damage.
