The cancer stem cell (CSC) model suggests that a small subset of cancer cells possess stem cell properties and plays a crucial role in tumor initiation, metastasis and resistance to anticancer therapy. Exploration of the specific therapies targeting at CSCs has been a crucial issue in antitumor research. Gastric cancer (GC) cells often exist in an ischemic microenvironment with acidic conditions in vivo, thus maintenance of cellular pH homeostasis is important for the survival and function of GC cells. Proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) may prevent intracellular proton extrusions which consequently reduce cancer cell survival under acidic conditions...

BACKGROUND: Drugs represent one of the etiologic causes of acute rhabdomyolysis (AR) with drug-induced rhabdomyolysis most commonly associated with HMG-CoA reductase inhibitors. AR etiology can also result from the use of diclofenac, a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug, and omeprazole, a proton pump inhibitor. Cases of AR triggered by pantoprazole have never before been reported, although it has been observed that its inclusion in multiple drug therapies can result in muscle events...

OBJECTIVE: Microscopic colitis (MC) is a chronic inflammatory disease of the colon that is characterized by chronic, watery, nonbloody diarrhea. Concern regarding a potential association between proton-pump inhibitors (PPIs) and MC has recently emerged. We sought to systematically review and summarize the evidence for the potential association between PPIs and MC. DATA SOURCES: We systematically searched EMBASE, MEDLINE, Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews, International Pharmaceutical Abstracts, and Google Scholar using the terms proton-pump inhibitors (omeprazole, lansoprazole, dexlansoprazole, rabeprazole, pantoprazole, or esomeprazole), microscopic colitis, collagenous colitis, and lymphocytic colitis STUDY SELECTION: Full-text, English-language reports of case reports/series, observational studies, experimental studies, and systematic reviews/meta-analyses published between January 2000 to August 2016 were included...

Older adults frequently have multiple medical conditions and consequently receive multiple medications. Cardiovascular (CV) and gastrointestinal disorders are two conditions in seniors that often require both long-term antiplatelet therapy and medications for GI prophylaxis. Clopidogrel and pantoprazole are commonly used for these conditions; however, there are potential adverse consequences secondary to drug interactions. Both of these drugs are metabolized via the cytochrome P450 system, and there is a potential for drug interactions that may result in decreased effectiveness of clopidogrel and an increased risk of adverse CV outcomes...

Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is recognized to be a multifactorial disease and several mechanisms leading to reflux have been described, nevertheless its pathophysiology has not been fully clarified. Hiatus hernia is a known risk factor for GERD since it impairs the esophagogastric junction, leading to: reduction in lower esophageal sphincter pressure; increase in the frequency of the transient lower esophageal sphincter relaxation; and impairment of esophageal clearance. Last generation diagnostic techniques have improved the understanding of these mechanisms...

BACKGROUND Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) is one of the most common bacterial infections worldwide. We designed a study to compare the efficacy of 14-day hybrid regimen with 10-day concomitant therapy for H. pylori eradication in Iran. METHODS 252 patients with naïve H. pylori infection were randomly divided to receive either hybrid regimen (pantoprazole 40 mg, and amoxicillin 1 gr twice daily for 14 days, accompanied by clarithromycin 500 mg, and metronidazole 500 mg, twice daily just during the last 7 days) or concomitant regimen (pantoprazole 40 mg, amoxicillin 1 gr, clarithromycin 500 mg, and metronidazole 500 mg, all twice daily for 10 days)...

BACKGROUND: Proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) are a group of gastric acid suppressing drugs, they work by irreversibly blocking the H+/K+ ATPase. The structure of PPIs is similar. They all have a similar core with a sulphur atom chiral center combined with different substituent groups. In relation to the sulphur atom chiral center, the pharmacodynamics, pharmacokinetics are diverse between the racemates and their stereoisomers. But there are no reviews outlining the stereoselective pharmacodynamics and pharmacokinetics in PPIs...

The use of deuterated drug bioisosteres to obtain superior pharmacokinetic properties or to investigate biotransformations at the molecular level is a growing field of pharmaceutical research. This work presents a NMR study on the deuteration of three structurally related antisecretory proton-pump inhibitors, the sodium salts of esomeprazole, 1, pantoprazole, 2, and rabeprazole, 3. It has been found that the methylene adjacent to the sulfinyl group displays stereoselective deuteration when the sodium salts of these products are dissolved at room temperature in D2O or CD3OD, a process that also occurs very efficiently in DMSO-d6 (a solvent considered non-deuterating) if a catalytic amount of NaOH is added...

Pantoprazole is a proton pump inhibitor that is commonly used in the treatment of peptic ulcer disease (PUD) and metabolized by cytochrome P450 (CYP) enzymes CYP2C19 and CYP3A4. Pantoprazole is a substrate for multidrug resistance protein 1 (MDR1). Single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in CYP2C19, CYP3A4 and MDR1 affect enzyme activity or gene expression of proteins and may alter plasma pantoprazole concentrations and treatment success in PUD. In this study, we aimed to investigate the association between genetic polymorphisms in CYP2C19, CYP3A4 and MDR1 and pharmacokinetics of pantoprazole and therapeutic outcomes in patients with either Helicobacter pylori associated [H...

BACKGROUND: Epidemiological studies suggest that long-term administration of proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) may decrease bone mineral density (BMD) and increase the risk of osteoporotic fractures. The aim of the study was to assess the influence of pantoprazole on bone metabolism in growing rats. METHODS: The experiment was carried out on twenty-four young male Wistar rats divided into two groups receiving either pantoprazole at the dose of 3mg/kg or vehicle for 12 weeks...

BACKGROUND: Published data indicated that combination use of clopidogrel and proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) may increase the incidence of major adverse cardiovascular events (MACEs). This has been a highly controversial topic for years. DESIGN: The present study was performed to evaluate whether combination therapy of clopidogrel and PPIs is associated with increased risk of MACEs than with clopidogrel alone in patients with coronary artery disease. METHODS: A systematic search of MEDLINE, EMBASE, and the Cochrane Library was conducted for studies recording the occurrence of MACEs in patients with exposure to concomitant use of clopidogrel and PPIs up to February 2015...

Pemetrexed, a multitargeted antifolate, is eliminated by tubular secretion via human organic anion transporter 3 (hOAT3). Although proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) are frequently used in cancer patients, the drug interaction between PPIs and pemetrexed remains to be clarified. In this study, we examined the drug interaction between pemetrexed and PPIs in hOAT3-expressing cultured cells, and retrospectively analyzed the impact of PPIs on the development of hematologic toxicity in 108 patients who received pemetrexed and carboplatin treatment of nonsquamous non-small cell lung cancer for the first time between January 2011 and June 2015...

BACKGROUND: The <80 % Helicobacter pylori eradication rate with sequential therapy is unsatisfactory. Modified bismuth quadruple therapy, replacing metronidazole with amoxicillin, could be promising because H. pylori resistance to tetracycline or to amoxicillin is relatively low. A 14-day modified bismuth quadruple protocol as first-line H. pylori treatment was compared with 10-day sequential therapy. METHODS: In total, 390 H. pylori-infected subjects participated in the randomized clinical trial: 10-day sequential therapy (40 mg pantoprazole plus 1 g amoxicillin twice a day for 5 days, then 40 mg pantoprazole and 500 mg clarithromycin twice a day and 500 mg metronidazole three times a day for 5 days) or 14-day modified bismuth quadruple therapy (40 mg pantoprazole, 600 mg bismuth subcitrate, 1 g tetracycline, and 1 g amoxicillin, twice a day)...

The antiplatelet clopidogrel and the proton pump inhibitor esomeprazole demonstrate a pharmacokinetic interaction through CYP2C19 that could translate into clinical inefficacy of clopidogrel. No medical consensus as to their coprescription has been reached, and different guidelines are available. We evaluated the prescribing practices at the Geneva University Hospitals (HUG) by measuring whether the coprescription was staggered as suggested by experts. We estimated the financial impact of different implementation guidelines...
