Abstract: An infusion or decoction of the aerial parts of Fabiana imbricata (Solanaceae) is used in traditional medicine in Chile and Argentina as a digestive and diuretic agent. The main sesquiterpene of the plant was identified as 11-hydroxy-4-amorphen-15-oic acid. At doses of 25, 50 and 100 mg/kg, the compound showed a dose-dependent gastroprotective effect in HCl/EtOH-induced gastric lesions in mice reducing the lesions by 68% at 100 mg/kg. Seven derivatives of the terpene were prepared and their gastroprotective effect was assessed in HCl/EtOH-induced gastric lesions in mice. The cytotoxicity of the products was evaluated in fibroblasts and AGS cells. At 100 mg/kg, 11-hydroxy-4-amorphen-15-p-toluidinamide presented the best gastroprotective effect reducing the gastric lesions by 80%, showing a similar effect to lansoprazole at 20 mg/kg. The compound, however, presented higher cytotoxicity than other derivatives with the IC50 ranging between 110 and 145 µm in AGS cells and fibroblasts, respectively. Most compounds proved to be non-toxic showing cytotoxicity values higher than 1000 µm. The spectroscopic data of six 11-hydroxy-4-amorphen-15-oic acid derivatives are presented here for the first time.
