There is no single cause of the gastrointestinal disorder. Researchers suggested that the cause of the disorder can be attributed directly to the digestive system, or other systemic problems that facilitate the onset of disease.

In the study to reaffirm the traditional medicine use of herbal burdock for the treatment of digestive disorders, researchers at the State University of Campinas conducted an evaluation to examine the anti-ulcerogenic activity of the sesquiterpene onopordopicrin (ONP)-enriched fraction (termed the ONP fraction), obtained from burdock leaves.
Further analysis found that the gastrointestinal protection is attributed to the endogenous sulfhydryls in the ONP fraction.
* Oral pretreatment with CE (10, 30 and 100 mg kg(-1)) significantly reduced gastric lesions induced by ethanol by 61%, 70%, and 76%, respectively.
*Oral administration of CE (100 mg kg(-1) per day for 7 days) reduced the chronic gastric ulceration induced by acetic acid by 52%. Intraduodenal CE (100, 300 and 600 mg kg(-1)) reduced the total acidity of gastric secretion by 22%, 22% and 33%, respectively,
