ATC Group: A02BX11 Troxipide
Anatomical Therapeutic Chemical Classification System
Tripoxide is a gastric cytoprotective agent used for the treatment of gastritis and gastric uclers. Troxipide has a mode of action different from that for other anti-gastric agents: it does not inhibit acid secretion and does not have acid neutralizing activity. It exerts its activity by increasing mucus production, cytoprotective prostaglandin secretion, regeneration of collagen fibers, reducing inflammatory mediator induced neutrophil migration and reactive oxygen species generation in gastric mucosa, enhancing gastric mucosal metabolism and microcirculation.
