Abstract

37 patients with endoscopically confirmed gastric ulcers received either cimetidine (19 patients) or pirenzepine (18 patients) in a double-blind trial. At 4 weeks, 53% of the patients treated with cimetidine and 44% of those treated with pirenzepine had endoscopically healed ulcers. At 8 weeks, complete healing had occurred in 83% of the patients taking cimetidine and 71% of those taking pirenzepine. These differences are not statistically significant.
