omeprazole and pregnancy

Ülkü Dağlı, İsmail Hakkı Kalkan
Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is frequently seen during pregnancy. In the medical treatment of pregnant women with GERD, alginic acid and sucralfate can be used. Calcium- and magnesium-based antacids can also be used, particularly for patients with preeclampsia. In particular, ranitidine -a histamine-2 receptor blocker- is preferred. In the case of non-responsiveness to the abovementioned treatments, proton pump inhibitors (PPIs), except omeprazole, can be given considering the benefit-harm ratio for the mother and fetus after the first trimester...

Patients with preeclampsia display elevated placenta-derived sFlt-1 (soluble Fms-like tyrosine kinase-1) and endoglin levels and decreased placental growth factor levels. Proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) decrease trophoblast sFlt-1 and endoglin secretion in vitro. PPIs are used during pregnancy to combat reflux disease. Here, we investigated whether PPIs affect sFlt-1 in women with confirmed/suspected preeclampsia, making use of a prospective cohort study involving 430 women. Of these women, 40 took PPIs (6 esomeprazole, 32 omeprazole, and 2 pantoprazole) for 8 to 45 (median 29) days before sFlt-1 measurement...

BACKGROUND: The rate of Helicobacter pylori (H.pylori) eradication in dyspeptic patients using bismuth- based triple therapy is low due to bacterial that are resistant to antibiotics. The results of recent studies regarding levofloxacin have been encouraging, but the high cost of treatment prevents its routine administration. We, therefore, performed the present double-blind clinical trial to compare the efficiency of quadruple-drug regimen containing ofloxacin, clarithromycin, amoxicillin, and omeprazole and the same standard triple-therapy regimen minus ofloxacin in H...

Dear Editor, Pityriasis rosea is a common, acute, and self-limiting dermatosis, which is associated with the endogenous systemic reactivation of human herpesvirus (HHV)-6 and/or HHV-7 (1). It predominantly affects individuals of both sexes in their second or third decade of life and is clinically characterized by the occurrence of an initial erythematosquamous plaque followed by the appearance of disseminated similar but smaller lesions one or two weeks later. Several patients develop systemic symptoms such as nausea, anorexia, malaise, headache, fever, arthralgia, and lymphadenopathy that may precede or accompany the eruption; the latter follows the cleavage lines of the trunk creating the configuration of a Christmas tree and spontaneously resolves within 4 to 8 weeks...

The CYP24A1 gene encodes a mitochondrial 24-hydroxylase that inactivates 1,25(OH)2 D. Loss-of-function mutations in CYP24A1 cause hypercalcemia, nephrolithiasis and nephrocalcinosis. We describe a woman with CYP24A1 deficiency and recurrent gestational hypercalcemia. Her first pregnancy, at age 20, resulted with the intrauterine demise of twin fetuses. Postpartum, she developed severe hypercalcemia (14 mg/dL), altered mental status, and acute pancreatitis. Her PTH was suppressed (6 pg/mL) and her 1,25(OH)2 D was elevated (165 and 195 pg/mL on postpartum day 1 and 5, respectively)...

The standard treatment for peptic ulcer associated with Helicobacter pylori is a combination of omeprazole, amoxicillin and clarithromycin, which renders the bacterium undetectable in about 70% of cases. A fixed-dose combination of bismuth subcitrate potassium + metronidazole + tetracycline has been authorised in some European countries for use in this setting, combined with high-dose omeprazole. In a European trial with 440 patients, the 4-drug combination of omeprazole + bismuth subcitrate + metronidazole + tetracycline was significantly more active than the standard 3-drug regimen in terms of H...

Proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) are increasingly used in reflux disease treatment also among pregnant women. Hypospadias prevalence is increasing and the birth defect is diagnosed in 0.3%-0.8% of male births, but the association with maternal PPI use during pregnancy is virtually unknown. Therefore, we decided to estimate the hypospadias risk in male offspring after maternal PPI use during pregnancy. We used Danish nationwide registries to conduct a population-based prevalence study including all live-born boys from 1997 through 2009...

BACKGROUND: Proton-pump inhibitors (PPIs) are often needed in pregnancy due to the high rates of acid reflux. Previous studies did not include medical pregnancy terminations data, which may cause a bias toward the null hypothesis. We assessed the fetal safety of PPIs following exposure during gestation including data from medical pregnancy terminations. METHODS: A unified computerized database was created by linking a computerized database of medications dispensed from 1998 to 2009 to all women registered in "Clalit" HMO, southern district of Israel, with computerized databases containing maternal and infant hospitalization records from the district hospital...

Aryl hydrocarbon receptor (AHR) and its heterodimer aryl hydrocarbon nuclear translocator (ARNT) form a ligand-activated transcription complex that regulates expression of the AHR battery of target genes that includes the most important placental biotransformation enzyme cytochrome CYP1A1. Expression, placental localization, and ontogeny of AHR/Ahr and ARNT/Arnt have not been systematically studied in either human or rat placentas. Moreover, induction of such AHR target genes as CYP1A1, CYP1A2, CYP1B1, UGT1A1, and breast cancer resistance protein (BCRP), as well as of AHR, ARNT, and aryl hydrocarbon receptor repressor (AHRR) genes, after exposure to AHR ligands have not been studied in human placental trophoblast cultures...

OBJECTIVES: Heartburn and acid reflux are common medical disorders in pregnancy and can result in serious discomfort and complications. Furthermore, some pregnant women also experience more severe gastrointestinal conditions, such as Helicobacter pylori infections, peptic ulcers, and Zollinger-Ellison syndrome. To allow the use of proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) in pregnancy, the fetal safety of this drug class must be established. The aim of this study is to determine the fetal safety of PPIs during early pregnancy through systematic literature review...
