Effects of 2 Different Doses of Pantoprazole on Gastric pH and Recurrent Bleeding in Patients Who Bled From Peptic Ulcers
Endoscopic treatment of bleeding peptic ulcers is effective to prevent rebleeding. Adjuvant medical treatment to increase gastric pH may further decrease rebleeding. Recent studies on potent acid suppression by proton pump inhibitors (PPI) demonstrated the efficacy in preventing rebleeding. Lau demonstrated that high dose intravenous infusion of omeprazole decreased rebleeding in peptic ulcers with stigmata of recent hemorrhage.
There is little data regarding the effect of pantoprazole on bleeding peptic ulcers. Furthermore, the optimal dose of PPI is unknown. Few studies have included measurement of gastric pH in addition to clinical outcome.
This study compares the effect of two doses of intravenous pantoprazole with no acid suppression in bleeding peptic ulcers after endoscopic therapy. In addition to the usual clinical endpoints, gastric pH is monitored to study the relation of pH elevation and the clinical outcome.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Treatment of varicose veins, hemorrhoids, gastric and esophageal varices, and peptic ulcer hemorrhage by injection or infusion of chemical agents which cause localized thrombosis and eventual fibrosis and obliteration of the vessels.
Peptic Ulcer Hemorrhage
Bleeding from a PEPTIC ULCER that can be located in any segment of the GASTROINTESTINAL TRACT.
Peptic Ulcer Perforation
Penetration of a PEPTIC ULCER through the wall of DUODENUM or STOMACH allowing the leakage of luminal contents into the PERITONEAL CAVITY.
Chemical agents injected into blood vessels and lymphatic sinuses to shrink or cause localized THROMBOSIS; FIBROSIS, and obliteration of the vessels. This treatment is applied in a number of conditions such as VARICOSE VEINS; HEMORRHOIDS; GASTRIC VARICES; ESOPHAGEAL VARICES; PEPTIC ULCER HEMORRHAGE.
Ulcer that occurs in the regions of the GASTROINTESTINAL TRACT which come into contact with GASTRIC JUICE containing PEPSIN and GASTRIC ACID. It occurs when there are defects in the MUCOSA barrier. The common forms of peptic ulcers are associated with HELICOBACTER PYLORI and the consumption of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS).
This is a multicenter, randomized, double-blind, parallel-group, dose-ranging, comparator-controlled study of the effect of pantoprazole on intragastric pH after successful endoscopic hemo...
A large dose of PPI is effective in preventing peptic ulcer rebleeding. The investigators hypothesize that 40 mg/q6h pantoloc is equivalent to 8mg/h pantoloc in preventing rebleeding.
The aim of this study is to compare the clinical effectiveness of intravenous esomeprazole and pantoprazole in preventing recurrent bleeding in the patients with high-risk bleeding peptic...
Low-dose aspirin can prevent cerebral and cardiovascular accidents in individuals with symptomatic atherothrombotic disease, but its use is frequently limited by gastrointestinal side effe...
Recently, negative inotropy of pantoprazole has been shown in isolated human myocardium. This study was designed to test the clinical relevance of this finding in healthy volunteers by mea...
1 The effect of pantoprazole on vecuronium-induced neuromuscular blockade in in vivo has not been clearly defined. In this study, we demonstrate that chronic administration, but not acute administra...
Children with gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) may benefit from gastric acid suppression with proton pump inhibitors such as pantoprazole. Effective treatment with pantoprazole requires correct...
BACKGROUND: Increasing resistance against Helicobacter pylori has resulted in reduced eradication rates. OBJECTIVE: This study aims to determine whether eradication rates for H. pylori infection with...
Background: Until now there has been no study that directly compares the effect of lansoprazole and pantoprazole administered intravenously on intragastric acidity. The aim of this study is to compare...
