Figure 4: Histological evaluation of gastric tissues using H and E, (×100). (a) Normal control group having intact stomach with normal morphology of the stomach. Black arrow indicates a normal morphology of the stomach with normal mucosal epithelial cells. Blue arrow indicates the normal sub-mucosal and muscular layer of the stomach, (b) ulcer control group showed extensive mucosal damage and ulcerated lesions with hemorrhage; black arrow indicates the extensive damage and loss of mucosal epithelial layer and hemorrhagic lesions. Blue arrow indicates the damage of submucosal layer, (c) Geraniol (30 mg/kg, b.i.d.)-treated rats showed mild injuries with less hemorrhage. Black arrow indicates a mild epithelial cell loss, edema, and neutrophil infiltration in mucosal layer. Blue arrow indicates the normal submucosal layer, (d) Combination drugs: Geraniol (30 mg/kg, b.i.d.)-treated rats and clarithromycin (25 mg/kg, b.i.d)-treated rats showed mild injuries with less hemorrhagic lesions. Black arrow indicates epithelial cell loss. Blue arrow showed the normal submucosal layer
