How effective are Ulcerlmin fine granules 90% from Japan for ulcer and gastritis (sucralfate hydrate, Carafate)?
Ulcerlmin fine granules contain sucralfate hydrate, a gastroprotective agent. It works by binding to sites of gastric or duodenal ulcer or gastritis and forming protective layer to protect gastric mucosa from gastric acid. As the active ingredient may cause aluminium accumulation, Ulcermine fine granules are not recommended for people with chronic kidney failure. However, in general this medicine has few side effects and well-tolerated. Studies showed that sucralfate hydrate is not metabolized in the body, excreted unchanged in urine and in feces (K. Steiner, K. U. Buhring et al. Sucralfate: pharmacokinetics, metabolism and selective binding to experimental gastric and duodenal ulcers in animals // Arzneimittel-Forschung, 1982, 32 (5): 512–8).
