Clinical efficacy of famotidine in the treatment of acid-related diseases: an overview.


PMID 2210612

Abstract

The clinical efficacy of famotidine has been clearly shown in the short- and long-term treatment of a number of acid-related diseases such as duodenal and gastric ulcer as well as in the acute management of reflux esophagitis. In addition, famotidine effectively treats anastomotic ulcer and nonulcer dyspepsia. Based on a number of considerations--chemical structure, pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics, clinical efficacy, tolerability, and dosage regimen--famotidine represents an end-point in the development of the H2-antagonist group of anti-ulcer agents.
