Cetraxate (INN) is an oral gastrointestinal medication which has a cytoprotective effect.[1] Double-blind clinical trials in patients with gastric ulcer compared the effects of cetraxate with those of the drug gefarnate, a common standard drug treatment for gastric ulcer. Endoscopic examinations of patients treated with cetraxate showed cure rates of 28% after 4 weeks, 61% after 8 weeks, and 73% after 12 weeks of treatment, significantly higher than cure rates seen with gefarnate at both 8 and 12 weeks.[2]
