Controlled study of the effects of intravenous famotidine on intragastric pH in bleeding peptic ulcers.

Abstract

As blood coagulation and platelet aggregation are abolished at pH less than 5.4 the failure of antisecretory drugs to promote haemostasis in bleeding peptic ulcers may reflect inadequate pH control. This study examined the ability of famotidine, a potent, long-acting H2 blocker to maintain intragastric pH above 5.4 in patients presenting with bleeding… (More)
