Proinflammatory factors, including neutrophil-derived oxygen free radicals and inflammatory cytokines, have recently been implicated in the pathogenesis of reflux esophagitis. Rebamipide has been widely used as an anti-ulcer agent. The aim of the present study was to assess the protective effect of rebamipide against acute reflux esophagitis in rats.(More)
Rebamipide, a gastromucosal protective drug, suppresses indomethacin-induced gastropathy in humans and rodents. Effects of rebamipide on gene expression in indomethacin-treated gastric mucosal cells (RGM1) were investigated using high-density oligonucleotide arrays. Indomethacin induced apoptosis in RGM1 cells in a dose-dependent manner. Rebamipide(More)
