It is known that cAMP and cGMP, as an "intracellular second messenger system" play a significant role as a signal system, in the mechanism of action of anti-ulcerogenic (cytoprotective) drugs. According to our present, preliminary investigations it seems that during different experimental circumstances the gastric mucosal 3′-5′-cyclic-cytidine-mono-phosphate (cCMP) 3′-5′-cyclic-uridine-monophosphate and (cUMP) levels were changed - similarly to CAMP and cGMP - and these changes might be a possible indicator of a further, most probably secondary, signal- system role.
