Background: Mikania laevigata leaves are commonly used in Brazil as a medicinal plant.Objective: To obtain hydroalcoholic dried extract by nebulization and evaluate its antiulcerogenic potential.Materials and Methods: Plant material and hydroalcoholic extract were processed and analyzed for their physicochemical characteristics. A method using HPLC was validated to quantify coumarin and o-coumaric acid. Hydroalcoholic extract was spray dried and the powder obtained was characterized in terms of its physicochemical parameters and potential for antiulcerogenic activity.Results: The analytical method proved to be selective, linear, precise, accurate, sensitive, and robust. M. laevigata spray dried extract was obtained using colloidal silicon dioxide as adjuvant and was shown to possess 1.83 ± 0.004% coumarin and 0.80 ± 0.012% o-coumaric acid. It showed significant antiulcer activity in a model of an indomethacin-induced gastric lesion in mice and also produced a gastroprotective effect.Conclusion: This dried extract from M. laevigata could be a promising intermediate phytopharmaceutical product. Abbreviations used: DE: M. laevigata spray dried extract, HE: hydroalcoholic extract
