We have studied the effect of tripotassium dicitrato bismuthate on the peptic activity of gastric juice, both basal and pentagastrin-stimulated, from five healthy volunteers using porcine pepsin solution as a control. Tripotassium dicitrato bismuthate showed no inhibition of the proteolytic activity of either the pure porcine or the human pepsin in the gastric juice. The ulcer healing efficacy of tripotassium dicitrato bismuthate is unlikely to be related to a gastric anti-protease effect.
