One of the leading problems of gastroenterology of our country is the task of ulcerative disease of the stomach treatment, duodenum treatment and diseases of large intestinal treatment. In spite of introduction of clinical practice the new anti-ulcerous preparations, the process of ulcerative disease of the stomach treatment remains a long process and makes in average about 2 - 4 weeks for acute ulcers and 2 - 3 months for chronic ulcers. In accordance with a world statistics an ulcerative disease of the stomach remains a very spread sickness (on the average 5 cases on 1 thousand persons), and even in the majority of countries at the last decade an increase of number of illness, stipulated by breach of ecology, stress, general worsening of human living conditions took place. Notice that the growth of exposure of morbidity in the area of alimentary tract to a certain extent is connected with introduction into diagnostics practice the endoscopical methods during a checkup of patients. Within Russia the statistics data give the following picture: (1) 500 - 700 persons per 100 thousand of inhabitants have an ulcerative disease and 15 - 20 persons from them have a steady resistance to an anti- ulcerative medicamental therapy. (2) At complex and electoral treatment of ulcerative disease patients with various preparations an epithelization have 60 - 94% of patients in the time of 20 - 48 days.
