Answer

Gastrointestinal Agents, Other

Agents in this class protect the gastric lining against peptic acid.

Sucralfate (Carafate)

Sucralfate binds to positively charged proteins in exudates to form a complex, which is a viscous paste-like, adhesive substance. It forms a protective coating that acts locally to protect the gastric lining against peptic acid, pepsin, and bile salts.
