Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to investigate the efficacy and safety of combination use of E0671 and Rabeprazole Sodium in patients with gastric ulcer.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Stomach Ulcer Drug: Teprenone Phase 4

Detailed Description:
The efficacy and safety of E0671 in combination with Rabeprazole Sodium (i.e., 10 mg/day of rabeprazole sodium and 150 mg/day of E0671) will be investigated in patients with gastric ulcer in a multicenter, randomized, double-blind, parallel-group comparative study using a placebo control group (10 mg/day of rabeprazole sodium and placebo for E0671).

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Enrollment : 520 participants
Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Double
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Double-blind, Comparative Study in Patients With Gastric Ulcer to Evaluate the Efficacy of Combination Use of E0671 and Rabeprazole Sodium
