Effect of Sucralfate on Experimental Ulcers
Sucralfate is one of the best-known drugs which is frequently used for the treatment of peptic ulcers. 1,2 The mechanisms of action of sucralfate have been described in the preceding chapters. In this chapter, a detailed account will be given of the results of experimental studies of sucralfate conducted to assess its effects in preventing and heal- ing a variety of experimental ulcers induced in animals, and also of their correlation with the results of clinical use of the drug in humans.
