    • Overview

      Proton pump inhibitors are among the most widely prescribed drugs worldwide, and in the United States. They are the third most widely sold drug class, with annual sales of $13.9 billion. In comparison to other acid-suppressing medications, such as histamine-2 (H2) receptor antagonists, proton pump inhibitors (PPI) are considered to be more potent at effectively inhibiting acid secretion. PPIs work to suppress gastric basal and stimulated acid secretion by irreversibly inhibiting the H+/K+ ATPase pump located on the basolateral side of the parietal cell, resulting in prolonged duration of activity (up to 3 days). Proton pump inhibitors are now FDA approved for healing erosive esophagitis (EE), maintenance of healed EE, risk reduction for development of gastric ulcers associated with non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), short-term treatment and maintenance of duodenal ulcers, pathological hypersecretory diseases such as Zollinger-Ellison (ZE) syndrome, and as a part of a multidrug regimen for Helicobacter pylori eradication.
