Magnesium trisilicate N. N. R. its position among antacids used to treat peptic ulcer

  • Manfred Kraemer

Summary and Conclusions

  1. 1.

    The neutralizing powers of various antacids used in treating peptic ulcer have been compared.

  2. 2.

    The disadvantages of usually employed antacids have been discussed.

  3. 3.

    A theoretical ideal antacid was postulated.

  4. 4.

    Magnesium Trisilicate was described in its relation to other antacids and as an approach to the ideal.
