The Influence of the Pharmaceutical Industry on Medicine, as Exemplified by Proton Pump Inhibitors by Helge L. WaldumThis book is based upon 45 years of clinical and scientific experience with gastroenterology, especially the stomach. In clinical medicine, Marshall and Warren's assertion that Helicobacter pylori is the main cause of gastritis, peptic ulcer disease, and gastric cancer made an immense impact. However, although peptic ulcers now can be treated with antibiotics, drugs that inhibit gastric acid secretion, including proton pump inhibitors (PPIs), are used in up to 10% of the adult population in Western countries in the treatment of gastro-oesophageal reflux disease and dyspepsia.
