Healing of acid-related disorders directly related to degree and duration of acid suppression and length of treatment Introduction in 1989 of proton pump inhibitors, covalent inhibitors of gastric H+,K+-ATPase, resulted in significant improvement in management of acid-related disorders PPI produce significantly more effective and prolonged acid suppression than H2-receptor antagonists without evidence of Spurt of new releases (“second-generation”) with big claims. More PPI released in last 7 years than in previous 15 years PPI prescriptions for questionable indications in 40%-70% of hospitalized patients (Aliment Pharmacol Ther doi: 10.1111/j.1365- Enteric-coated acid-labile pro-drugs, so peak levels after 2-5 h Weak bases; require acid environment for conversion to active 5% pumps active on fasting, 60%-70% after meal Plasma half-life <2 h; acid inhibition >24 h; 1 week therapy Best administration, therefore, immediately before meals; esomeprazole administration 1 h before, because food No interference with concomitant antacids Significant genetic polymorphisms for one of the CYP Food may delay absorption of lansoprazole, pantoprazole and isoenzymes involved in PPI metabolism, CYP2C19 rabeprazole, but this does not alter area under plasma ~3% of white persons and 15% of Asians deficient in CYP2C19 Generally no dose adjustment for renal or hepatic failure, or in This substantially raises plasma levels of omeprazole, lansoprazole and pantoprazole, but not of rabeprazole and Eradicating H. pylori renders PPI less effective in elevating gastric pH in patients with duodenal ulcer generally more effective than H2RA, but difference not significant in non-ulcer dyspepsia and peptic ulcers preferred for GERD, with night-time H2RA if required reduce risk of NSAID-associated endoscopic ulcer disease but there is less evidence for reduction in bleeding events (Cochrane preferred for primary and secondary prevention, and for treatment, of non-variceal upper GI bleed (Aliment Pharmacol Ther 2008;28:629-7; Health Technol Assess 2007;11:1-164) preferred in treatment for H. pylori In vitro activation time at acidic pH (1.2) abeprazole
At acidic pH (as obtained in parietal cells), activation half-life for PPI Omeprazole, pantoprazole and lansoprazole have equivalent potency for normalizing intra-oesophageal acid exposure after 3 days of treatment in non-erosive reflux disease patients; the former two act earlier (Aliment Pharmacol Ther 2008;28:250-5) Hence, no functional significance in differences in activation time All current PPI equally recommended for H. pylori eradication Recently available fast preparations (coupled with alkalis) useful regimens. In a recent study, omeprazole-based triple therapy gave higher eradication rate in non-ulcer dyspepsia (Korean J • Although recommended doses of PPI vary, data suggest • Different dose recommendations based on different strategies to balance optimal dosage with safety • No real difference in milligram-related efficiencies -- Gastroenterology 2000;118:A5895 Median % time pH >4 in 24 h after single dose (Indian) Few studies indicate that low doses of PPI are as effective as standard doses in management of acid-related diseases Low doses are inferior to standard doses in healing esophagitis Low doses may be therapeutically similar to standard doses in maintenance therapy of GERD and peptic ulcer disease Intravenous formulations of all PPI currently available IV PPI is currently mainstay in management of upper GI bleeding in peptic ulcer patients who have undergone endoscopic hemostasis (Ann Intern Med 2003;139:843-57) Use of similar regimen prior to endoscopy may reduce high-risk stigmata at endoscopy (N Engl J Med 2007;356:1631-40) Unfortunately, IV PPI commonly used where not indicated, and even where recommended, are used in higher doses and for longer durations than recommended (Can J Gastroenterol Once-daily IV PPI may give same benefit as continuous infusion (Am J Gastroenterol 2008;103:3011-8 and 3019-21) Conceivably, oral PPI may offer same benefit (Aliment Pharmacol Ther 2008;28:326-33; BMJ 2005;330:568) Tolerance not seen during short-term treatment Tolerance not seen during short-term treatment Rebound acid hypersecretion by 14 days after cessation of Rebound acid hypersecretion by 14 days after cessation of therapy.
