The effect of pirenzepine and cimetidine on healing, symptoms and relapse rate of duodenal ulcer was studied in a placebo-controlled double-blind trial. Cimetidine (1 g daily) was superior at the beginning of therapy to a low dose of pirenzepine (75 mg daily) and placebo with regard to symptoms. No significant differences in ulcer healing were found between(More)

A double-blind randomized controlled study with pirenzepine (75 mg/day), cimetidine (1 g/day) and placebo was performed in 50 consecutive out-patients with duodenal ulcer. The patients also received an antacid containing aluminium hydroxide. Pirenzepine, cimetidine and placebo had similar effects on the 4-week healing rate. Dryness of the mouth was more(More)
