Effects of domperidone in combination with omeprazole in the treatment of chronic superficial gastritis
Objective: To find out the effects of domperidone in combination with omeprazole in the treatment of chronic superficial gastritis (CSG).
Methods: Ninety-six patients who suffered from CSG and received treatment in the Binzhou People’s Hospital from July 2013 to July 2014 were selected as research subjects. They were divided into a control group (48 cases) and a test group (48 cases) using double blind method. Patients in the control group were treated by omeprazole, while patients in the observation group were treated by domperidone in combination with omeprazole. The clinical effects of the two groups were observed and analyzed.
Results: The scores of symptoms had no significant difference between the two groups before treatment. The improvement of the scores of symptoms in the test group was superior to that in the control group after treatment (P<0.05). The overall response rate of the test group was 97.92% (47/48), higher than that of the control group (75.00%). After treatment, the repair effect of gastric mucosa and the postoperative recurrence rate in the test group were superior to those of the control group (P<0.05).
Conclusion: Domperidone in combination with omeprazole can achieve ideal effect in the treatment of CSG, which is of great significance to the treatment and prognosis of patients.
