Topics from this paper

Ranitidine: a new H2-receptor antagonist.
TLDR
The treatment of peptic-ulcer disease has been dramatically altered by the introduction and use of cimetidine and this substituted imidazole compound is an effective H2-recepto... Expand
Gastric emptying and bezoars in Japanese
TLDR
Factors other than a delay in gastric emptying are the main contributors to bezoar formation, in Japanese. Expand
Bezoars--when the 'knot in the stomach' is real.
TLDR
Likelihood of bezoar formation is increased in patients who has undergone gastrointestinal surgery, and patients who have had gastric reduction for morbid obesity may form a high-risk population. Expand
Oral administration of spermine inhibits gastric acid secretion in rats
TLDR
Data suggest a therapeutic potential for the naturally occurring polyamine compounds in pylorous ligated rats and an inverse relationship between the efficacy of oral spermine and age of the animals was observed. Expand
Trichophytobezoar Without Gastrointestinal Complaints
TLDR
The clinical diagnosis suggested lymphoma or gastric cancer with secondary masses in the cervical lymph nodes, but the diagnosis ultimately proved to be tubercular lymphadenitis on biopsy and gastric trichophytobezoar on endoscopy and laparotomy. Expand
Gastric emptying and bezoars.
TLDR
It is concluded that factors other than the gastric digestive phase are the main contributors to bezoar formation. Expand
Gastric and enteric phytobezoars caused by ingestion of persimmon in equids.
TLDR
In equids with gastric persimmon phytobezoar, medical management (including administration of cola or diet cola and dietary modification to a pelleted feed) may allow for persimMon phytobzoar dissolution. Expand
Small Bowel Phytobezoar Obstruction in a Post Gastrojejunostomy Patient – A Case Report
TLDR
A rare radiological finding of phytobezoar obstruction is reported in a patient, who underwent gastrojejunostomy operation, and the patient was treated surgically and had an uneventful recovery. Expand
Tricobezoar gástrico: relato de caso e revisão da literatura
TLDR
A case of a voluminous gastric trichobezoar observed in a 16-yr-old adolescent with abdominal pain and palpated mass in the epigastrium and biopsies of this ulcer showed to be negatives for neoplasy. Expand

Abstract The effectiveness of cimetidine for symptomatic relief in patients with chronic gastroesophageal reflux was studied in a multicenter, double blind clinical trial. Patients were entered intoExpand
CIMETIDINE IN THE TREATMENT OF GASTRIC ULCER Review and commentary
TLDR
Preliminary results indicate that cimetidine is more effective than carbenoxolone in healing ulcers and is not significantly superior to treatment with larger quantities of antacid in two other trials. Expand
The effect of cimetidine, a new histamine H2-receptor antagonist, on meal-stimulated acid secretion, serum gastrin, and gastric emptying in patients with duodenal ulcer.
TLDR
Cimetidine was equally effective in inhibiting meal-stimulated acid secretion at two physiological intragastric pH levels (5.0 and 2.5), but when pH was allowed to seek its own level, serum gastrin concentration was higher after cimetidine than after placebo. Expand
Cimetidine in anastomotic ulceration after partial gastrectomy.
TLDR
A beneficial effect of cimetidine on healing and symptoms of anastomotic ulcers is demonstrated and during 1 year of maintenance therapy with 800 mg cimetazine daily, 3 of 19 patients relapsed. Expand
