International researchers summarize the current understanding of peptic disease and trace the development of a novel new drug for peptic disease therapy-sucralfate. Contributors present laboratory research along side data from clinical trials as well as from the practice of medicine. Articles discuss the history of sucralfate's development, mechanisms of action, clinical efficacy, and future directions for research. This volume will be of interest to scientists and clinicians working in gastroenterology and gastrointestinal physiology
