ABSTRACT
The article cites a study, conducted by J.Y. Lau and colleagues, which discusses how early intravenous (IV) infusion of high-dose omeprazole before endoscopy affects the need for endoscopic therapy in patients with bleeding peptic ulcers. The researchers used randomized placebo-controlled trial in the study. They found that early IV infusion of high-dose omeprazole before endoscopy reduced the need for endoscopic therapy and actively bleeding peptic ulcers.
