Concern has been raised that Helicobacter pylori therapy may lead to the development of gastro-oesophageal reflux disease. This prospective study was designed to assess reflux-related quality of life and the symptoms of gastro-oesophageal reflux disease in patients undergoing H. pylori therapy.
LPZ significantly increased the blood concentration of TAC 12 hours after TAC administration (p=0.030 and p=0.003, respectively) and CSA (p=0.047 and p=0.014, respectively) in comparison with RPZ and non-PPI-combined treatment. There were no significant differences in the mean CSA blood concentration two hours after administration in patients with or without PPI treatment, in the incidence of adverse events, or in the CYP2C19 gene polymorphism status among the three groups.

This was a post hoc analysis of an open-label, multicentre, post-marketing, observational study which investigated the effect of LPZ (15 or 30 mg/day for 8 weeks) on HRQOL in patients with RE. At baseline, and after 4 and 8 weeks of treatment, HRQOL was assessed using a Japanese version of the 8-item Short-Form Health Survey (SF-8) and a newly-developed RE-specific questionnaire (RESQ). Stratified analysis of changes in HRQOL scores according to baseline patient characteristics such as sex, age and baseline severity of typical RE symptoms was performed.

In this management model, esomeprazole was more effective than either lansoprazole or pantoprazole for maintaining remission after sequential healing and 6 months' maintenance therapy for RE.
A 57-year-old man developed chronic, watery diarrhea four weeks after Helicobacter pylori eradication therapy including lansoprazole followed by lansoprazole monotherapy for gastroesophageal reflux disease. Four weeks later the patient was admitted to our hospital. By repeated testing other causes of diarrhea, e. g., infectious diarrhea including Clostridium difficile colitis were excluded. Endoscopy showed a normal colon, histopathology of random biopsies of all sections of the colon demonstrated the characteristic features of collagenous colitis. Withdrawal of lansoprazole lead to prompt and sustained relief. Two months later repeat colonoscopy with biopsies showed no evidence of collagenous colitis. Collagenous colitis as a subtype of microscopic colitis is a rare cause of chronic diarrhea with unknown pathogenesis. The reported case represents an unusual association between medication with the proton pump inhibitor lansoprazole and the development of collagenous colitis suggesting the importance of evaluation of drug use in patients with microscopic colitis.
A 30 mg dose of lansoprazole was administered orally daily for 7 days in eight healthy male volunteers aged 21-24 years, and in 16 patients aged 29-65 years with grade 2 or 3 reflux oesophagitis. The pharmacokinetics were assessed over the 24 h dose interval following the first dose and again after the 7th dose.

Vonoprazan 20 mg has a similar tolerability profile to lansoprazole 30 mg and is non-inferior with respect to GU healing and has similar efficacy for DU healing.
Current approach for the treatment of gastroesopageal reflux disease (GERD) was reviewed. The most effective treatment of erosive esophagitis or symptomatic GERD is to reduce gastric acid secretion with either an H2 receptor antagonists (H2RA) or a proton pump inhibitor (PPI). The PPI lead to more rapid healing and symptom relief than H2RA. Despite treatment with PPI, some patients with GERD continue to have symptoms or endoscopic evidence of esophagitis. Nocturnal acid breakthrough may be one of the mechanisms responsible for the refractory GERD. There are two approaches to the initial medical treatment of gastroesophageal reflux disease ('step down' therapy or 'step up' approach). Although there are arguments in favour of both approaches, the former is considered to be preferable these days.

Twenty patients with RE receiving 8 weeks of oral PPI (lansoprazole, 30 mg/day) administration and 17 healthy control subjects were enrolled. After a repeat endoscopy, gastric emptying and electrogastrography were performed. Patients were divided into two groups based on the Los Angeles classification after 8 weeks of PPI treatment--a response RE group (RG: patients with either non-EE or a two-rank improvement by an endoscopic grading system) and a non-response RE group (NRG: patients with EE and only one rank of improvement by endoscopic grading).

The clinical efficacy of proton pump inhibitors (PPI, omeprazole 20 mg or lansoprazole 30 mg), once daily, after breakfast, was studied in patients with erosive/ulcerative reflux esophagitis. The following results were obtained. 1) Twenty-four hour esophageal pH monitoring was performed before treatment and on 7th day of PPI medications. Omeprazole reduced the percent time pH less than 4 from 29.1 to 1.2 and lansoprazole from 68.0 to 2.4. 2) The cumulative disappearance rate of overall symptom was 52% after 1 week and 62% after 2 weeks with omeprazole these were 66% and 91%, and with lansoprazole respectively 3) The endoscopic healing rate was 63% was after 2 weeks and 76% after 4 weeks with omeprazole medication, and 76% and 97% respectively with lansoprazole. These results indicate that PPI medication inhibits the acid reflux almost completely and is a more useful therapeutic agent for GERD than H2-antagonists.

Patients with H. pylori positive active peptic ulcer disease were randomly assigned to receive lansoprazole 30 mg o.d., amoxycillin 1 g b.d. and ornidazole 500 mg b.d. (LAO) or lansoprazole 30 mg o.d., amoxycillin 1 g b.d. and clarithromycin 500 mg b.d. (LAC) for 2 weeks. Pre-treatment resistance to ornidazole and clarithromycin was assessed by Epsilometer (E-) test. Four weeks after completion of treatment, patients underwent a 13C urea breath test to assess H. pylori status.

An infusion or decoction of the aerial parts of Fabiana imbricata (Solanaceae) is used in traditional medicine in Chile and Argentina as a digestive and diuretic agent. The main sesquiterpene of the plant was identified as 11-hydroxy-4-amorphen-15-oic acid. At doses of 25, 50 and 100 mg/kg, the compound showed a dose-dependent gastroprotective effect in HCl/EtOH-induced gastric lesions in mice reducing the lesions by 68% at 100 mg/kg. Seven derivatives of the terpene were prepared and their gastroprotective effect was assessed in HCl/EtOH-induced gastric lesions in mice. The cytotoxicity of the products was evaluated in fibroblasts and AGS cells. At 100 mg/kg, 11-hydroxy-4-amorphen-15-p-toluidinamide presented the best gastroprotective effect reducing the gastric lesions by 80%, showing a similar effect to lansoprazole at 20 mg/kg. The compound, however, presented higher cytotoxicity than other derivatives with the IC50 ranging between 110 and 145 microm in AGS cells and fibroblasts, respectively. Most compounds proved to be non-toxic showing cytotoxicity values higher than 1000 microm. The spectroscopic data of six 11-hydroxy-4-amorphen-15-oic acid derivatives are presented here for the first time.

Lansoprazole affected neither the HGL secretion nor the intragastric lipolysis levels, although an increase was observed in the intragastric pH at the end of the gastric emptying of the meal. The HGL concentration increased, however, due to the decrease in the acid secretion process, resulting in less diluted gastric contents.
The mean age of the 14 patients enrolled in the study was 52.4 yr (range = 38-67). Mean basal AO was 0.55 +/- 0.32 mEq/h and mean fasting gastrin was 1089 pg/ml (range = 36-3720). Four patients were also diagnosed with the multiple endocrine neoplasia type I syndrome, nine were male, and two had previously undergone acid-reducing surgery. Before study enrollment, gastric acid hypersecretion was controlled in nine of 14 patients with omeprazole (20-200 mg daily) and five of 14 with lansoprazole (30-210 mg daily). In the oral phase of the study all patients had adequate control of gastric acid secretion, with a mean AO of 0.55 +/- 0.32 mEq/h (mean +/- SEM). Thereafter, 80 mg of i.v. pantoprazole was administered b.i.d. for 7 days by a brief (15 min) infusion and the dose was titrated upward to a predetermined maximum of 240 mg/24 h to control AO. A dose of 80 mg b.i.d. of i.v. pantoprazole controlled AO in 13 of 14 of the patients (93%) for the duration of the study (p > 0.05 compared to baseline values for all timepoints). One sporadic ZES patient (oral control value = 0.65 mEq/h on 100 mg of omeprazole b.i.d. p.o.) was not controlled with 80 mg of i.v. pantoprazole b.i.d. and dosage was titrated upward to 120 mg b.i.d. after day 2.
In patients with endoscopy-negative gastro-oesophageal reflux disease, esomeprazole 20 mg on-demand is more acceptable to patients and is an economically more effective treatment than lansoprazole 15 mg continuously.

The PPIs evaluated in this study reduced the frequency and severity of 24-h heartburn regardless of baseline BMI. In addition, because patients with higher BMI have more severe symptoms at baseline, they may experience greater therapeutic gain with dexlansoprazole (NERD and erosive oesophagitis) and possibly lansoprazole (erosive oesophagitis) treatment.
