Answer

Proton Pump Inhibitors

Proton pump inhibitors inhibit gastric acid secretion by inhibition of the H+ -K+ -ATPase enzyme system in the gastric parietal cells. They are used prophylactically in cases not responsive to H2-antagonist therapy.

Omeprazole (Prilosec)

Omeprazole decreases gastric acid secretion by inhibiting the parietal cell H+/K+-adenosine triphosphate (ATP) pump at the secretory surface of gastric parietal cells.

Lansoprazole (Prevacid)

Lansoprazole decreases gastric acid secretion by inhibiting the parietal cell H+/K+-ATP pump at the secretory surface of gastric parietal cells.

Rabeprazole (AcipHex)

Rabeprazole decreases gastric acid secretion by inhibiting the parietal cell H+/K+-ATP pump at the secretory surface of gastric parietal cells.

Pantoprazole (Protonix)

Pantoprazole decreases gastric acid secretion by inhibiting the parietal cell H+/K+-ATP pump at the secretory surface of gastric parietal cells.

Esomeprazole (Nexium)

Esomeprazole inhibits gastric acid secretion by inhibiting the H+/K+-ATPase enzyme system at the secretory surface of gastric parietal cells at the secretory surface of gastric parietal cells.
