Effect of rebamipide on the glycosaminoglycan content of the ulcerated rat stomach.

To elucidate the mechanism of the anti-ulcer effect of rebamipide (2-(4-chlorobenzoylamino)-3-[2-(1H)-quinolinon-4-yl] propionic acid), changes in glycosaminoglycan (GAG), uronic acid and hexosamine contents of stomach tissue were examined in rats treated with the ulcer-inducing agents and/or rebamipide. Uronic acid and hexosamine contents in acid… CONTINUE READING
