Of the various forms of treatment used in peptic ulcer, acid neutralization therapy has held the most prominent position for over one hundred years. In the quest for a better antacid many substances have been tried but no ideal agent has been found. Many virtues have been attributed to these compounds but as far as is known their chief value lies in their acid reducing property. We have, therefore, made analyses of some of the more commonly used substances on a basis in which their neutralizing capacity by titration can be compared with their antacid property within the human stomach.
