Sucralfate has proved effective in preventing relapse in patients with ulcer disease. The aim of this study on a sample of 26 gastric ulcer patients was to evaluate whether long-term sucralfate therapy could maintain clinical remission of the disease once the ulcer had healed. Relapses occurred in six patients (23%), almost all within three months of healing; no relapses were detected after the 12th month of observation, which confirms the efficacy of sucralfate in ulcer maintenance therapy.

Abstract

Sucralfate has proved effective in preventing relapse in patients with ulcer disease. The aim of this study on a sample of 26 gastric ulcer patients was to evaluate whether long-term sucralfate therapy could maintain clinical remission of the disease once the ulcer had healed. Relapses occurred in six patients (23%), almost all within three months of healing; no relapses were detected after the 12th month of observation, which confirms the efficacy of sucralfate in ulcer maintenance therapy.
