Intestinal and Stomach Healing

GHK-Cu has potent effects on the healing of stomach ulcers and intestinal inflammations. One small human study found a very positive effect of GHK-Cu on the healing of intestinal lesions in persons with refractory inflammatory bowel disease.

      Likewise, GHK-Cu produced a similar blockage of rat duodenal ulcer formation (cystamine induced).


Healing of Intestinal and Stomach Ulcers 
Study Result Reference
Healing of stomach and intestinal ulcers 

GHK-Cu was tested for healing of experimental stomach ulcers and intestinal damage in rats.

GHK-Cu healed experimental stomach ulcers and intestinal inflammation and damage

Pickart US Patent 4,767,753   Copper complexes of histidyl-lysine polypeptide(s) for reducing stomach secretions, increasing stomach mucous and preventing ulcers. US Patent 5,023,237   Use of polypeptide or its copper complex for cytoprotection in treatment of intestinal and stomach ulcers, and to facilitate wound healing. US Patent 5,145,838   Methods and compositions for healing ulcers and peptide derivatives.
Cytoprotective actions against oxygen free radicals
GHK-Cu markedly inhibited intestinal mucosal tissue from lipid peroxidation by oxygen-derived free radicals

Human Study - Inflammatory bowel disease

16 patients with refractory inflammatory bowel disease were treated with rectally administered solutions of GHK-Cu.

After the 12 weeks treatment, there was a 60% reduction in severity bas measured by endoscopy, histopathology, and symptoms
