Ulcumaag Kaplet

Ulcumaag Kaplet


Each caplet contains 500 mg Sucralfate.

Sucralfate is an aluminium salt sucrose sulfate which acts locally in the GI tract and is virtually unabsorbed. It produces an
adherent and cytoprotective barrier at the ulcer site that resists degradation by acid  and pepsin.
Laboratory and clinical studies indicate that sucralfate may promoted the healing of peptic ulcers in 3 ways :
Forming a chemical complex that binds to the ulcer site to establish a protective barrier.
Directly inhibits the action of acid, pepsin and bile.
Blocking the diffusion of gastric acid through the barrier.
Studies indicate that sucralfate remains in the GI tract for extended period s, prolonging  the therapeutic actions of the drug.
Furthermore. It is minimally absorbed from Gi tract which results in insignificant systemic side effects.
