Unoperated female rats were subjected to daily oral treatment with omeprazole (10 or 400 mumol/kg body wt), ranitidine (175 + 175 + 350 mumol/kg body wt), or vehicle and antrectomized rats were treated with omeprazole (400 mumol/kg body wt) or vehicle. After 10 wk of treatment, plasma gastrin levels were high in unoperated rats treated with the high(More)
Current therapies to treat gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), peptic ulcer disease (PUD), and other acid-related diseases either prevent stimulation of the parietal cell (H2 receptor antagonists, H2RAs) or inhibit gastric H+,K+-ATPase (e.g., proton pump inhibitors, PPIs). Of the 2 approaches, the inhibition of the final step in acid production by PPIs(More)
The gastric antisecretory properties of omeprazole, a new potent substituted benzimidazole, have been evaluated in dogs and rats. Omeprazole was compared with another benzimidazole, picoprazole (H 149/94), and with the histamine H2-receptor antagonist cimetidine. The intravenous or intraduodenal administration of omeprazole in the gastric fistula dog(More)
Gastric acid has been known for many decades to be a key factor in normal upper gastrointestinal functions, including protein digestion and calcium and iron absorption, as well as providing some protection against bacterial infections. However, inappropriate levels of gastric acid underlie several widespread pathological conditions, including(More)
Twenty-three coronary bypass graft patients were evaluated by a contrast-enhanced computed tomography (CT) technique to determine graft patency. Four to six 4.8-second sequenced scans with a 1-second interscan interval were obtained in each patient during the hand injection of 25-30 ml of contrast medium in a peripheral vein. Patency of grafts was(More)
In the present paper, a collection of experimental data is presented describing the pharmacological profile of omeprazole mainly in dogs and rats. Omeprazole potently inhibited gastric acid secretion in different experimental models. In the dog, for instance, omeprazole was 2-7 times more potent than cimetidine, depending on the route of administration, and(More)
Cryo-ultramicrotomy and "conventional" plastic sectioning have been used in combination with extraction and immunolabeling techniques to determine the location of the two M-band proteins characterized to date, MM-creatine kinase (MM-CK: Mr, 80,000) and M-protein "myomesin" (Mr, 165,000) within the M-region of chicken pectoralis muscle. The following main(More)
