To study the efficacy of a single bedtime dose of H2-receptor antagonist in the healing of duodenal ulcer, a 12-week randomized double-blind controlled trial of oxmetidine, which is equipotent to cimetidine and has a similar duration of action, was performed in 80 patients. Oxmetidine, 600 mg bedtime, resulted in significantly more complete healing than(More)
