OBJECTIVE: To investigate the mechanism of Ghrelin/GHS-R signaling pathway in small intestine injury induced by NSAIDs related enteropathy. To clarify the mechanism network of intestinal mucosal repair with naringin as a new therapeutic method.

METHODS: Naringin was used as the intervention method, observed the damage of small intestinal mucosa and detected the expression of ghrelin, GHS-R, leptin and TNF-α by electron microscopy, HE staining and immunohistochemistry.

RESULTS: Compared with the control group, the weight of rats in the model group decreased, the thickness of intestinal mucosa became thinner, the structure of intestinal mucosa changed, the expression of ghrelin, GHS-R and leptin decreased, the expression of TNF-α increased. Compared with the model group, the intestinal mucosa of the treatment group was repaired, the expression of ghrelin, GHS-R and leptin was increased, and the expression TNF-α was decreased.

CONCLUSION: The mechanism of intestinal mucosal damage in patients with NSAIDs related enteropathy may be related to the decreased expression of ghrelin, GHS-R and leptin, and promotion of TNF-α secretion. Naringin can effectively promote the secretion of ghrelin and leptin, the expression of GSH-R, and inhibit the release of TNF-α, so as to repair intestinal mucosa naringin will become a new method to treat and prevent NSAIDs related intestinal diseases.
