Thus, acid suppressants have been the gold standard treatment for gastric ulcers, with considerable rates of healing and symptom relief [2]; however, concerns are growing about their side effects including anacidity, weakness of the natural protective properties of gastric mucosa, and disease recurrence [3].
It is now known that anacidity occurs in a minority of cases and then usually only in advanced stages of the disease, and anacidity of itself does not necessarily have pathological significance.
Anacidity is also associated with other clinical conditions, e.g., pernicious anemia and rheumatoid arthritis.
