There were 310 patients with erosive esophagitis enrolled in the trial. There were 155 patients randomized to continuous omeprazole therapy and 155 to open antireflux surgery, of whom 144 later had an operation. Because of various withdrawals during the study course, 122 patients originally having an antireflux operation completed the 5-year followup; the corresponding figure in the omeprazole group was 133. Symptoms, endoscopy, and quality-of-life questionnaires were used to document clinical outcomes. Treatment failure was defined to occur if at least one of the following criteria were fulfilled: Moderate or severe heartburn or acid regurgitation during the last 7 days before the respective visit; Esophagitis of at least grade 2; Moderate or severe dysphagia or odynophagia symptoms reported in combination with mild heartburn or regurgitation; If randomized to surgery and subsequently required omeprazole for more than 8 weeks to control symptoms, or having a reoperation; If randomized to omeprazole and considered by the responsible physician to require antireflux surgery to control symptoms; If randomized to omeprazole and the patient, for any reason, preferred antireflux surgery during the course of the study. Treatment failure was the primary outcomes variable.
Although chemotherapy has been documented to be effective in the treatment of Helicobacter pylori-associated gastritis and gastroduodenal ulcers, some cases are known to have been unsuccessful in the attempt to eradicate this species. In this study, we examined the relation between the susceptibility of H. pylori isolates and the efficacy of chemotherapy. We utilized the modified agar plate dilution method to determine the minimum inhibitory concentrations (MICs) of 63 H. pylori strains isolated before treatment with several drugs routinely used during eradication chemotherapy. Among the drugs tested, amoxicillin (AMPC) and clarithromycin (CAM) demonstrated high degrees of activity with MIC99, 0.39 and 0.2 micrograms/ml, respectively. No highly resistant strain against AMPC was detected among the strains examined, while for CAM and metronidazole (MTZ), 9.5% and 7.9% of the strains, respectively, were resistant before treatment. It should be noted that all of the MICs of the strains from patients with successful therapy were lower than those from patients with unsuccessful therapy. These findings indicate that susceptibility tests should be carried out prior to the commencement of drug administration in order to provide safer and more effective chemotherapy.

Treatment with fixed oil significantly inhibited the gastric secretion, total acidity and esophagitis index. The oil also altered the levels of sialic acid and collagen towards normal with significant antioxidant activity in esophageal tissues.
Peptic esophageal strictures are a common sequelae of long-standing reflux esophagitis. Factors predisposing to stricture formation are poorly understood; however, stricture patients are typically older, have a longer duration of reflux symptoms, have significantly lower lower esophageal sphincter pressures, and more frequently display abnormal esophageal motility than reflux patients without strictures. A careful history should suggest the diagnosis in most cases, but should be confirmed with a barium esophagram followed by endoscopy with biopsies to exclude malignancy. The therapeutic armamentarium for treating peptic strictures has greatly expanded during the past 30 yr. It now includes potent anti-secretory medications, bougienage with flexible polyethylene dilators or balloons, and anti-reflux surgery. Aggressive medical therapy combined with bougienage is safe and effective treatment for the majority of stricture patients, with surgery being reserved for the subset of patients with intractable esophagitis, irreversibly damaged esophagus, or extra-esophageal manifestations.

The efficacy of proton pump inhibitors in functional dyspepsia is modest and the prognostic factors are almost unknown.
Barrett's esophagus (BE) is a change in the cellular structure of the lower esophagus believed by many to be caused by frequent acid exposure. The condition is troublesome because of a tendency toward cell proliferation, dysplastic transformation, and cancerous changes within the lesions. It is speculated that the pronounced increase in esophageal adenocarcinoma during the past 25 years may be attributable to acid reflux and associated BE. Strict acid control may cause lesion regression in these patients. However, pH monitoring to confirm adequate acid control is essential, and more than 1 drug may be needed to achieve adequate acid control and manage many patients. More research is needed to determine whether aggressive acid control reduces the dysplasia and cancer risk associated with BE.

There were 90 patients in the LEC group and 99 patients in the AEC group. By intention-to-treat and per-protocol analysis, the H. pylori eradication rate was 78.9% [71/90; 95% confidence interval (CI), 70.3-87.5%] and 83.5% (71/85; 95% CI, 75.5-91.6%) respectively, in the LEC group; and 74.8% (74/99; 95% CI, 66.0-83.5%) and 86.0% (74/86; 95% CI, 78.6-93.5%) respectively, in the AEC group. The incidence and tolerability of side effects were similar between these two groups.

Fifty-one patients were treated with 20-60 mg omeprazole for reflux oesophagitis resistant to H2-blocker therapy during a mean of 49 months of follow-up. With use of a standardized enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay technique specific IgG and IgG Helicobacter pylori antibodies were determined in serum obtained at the start of therapy and at the most recent visit. At the start of therapy 26 patients (51%) had evidence of H. pylori infection, as demonstrated by increased IgG and IgA antibody levels. During follow-up, 4 of these 26 patients (15%) became H. pylori seronegative. It is concluded that long-term treatment with omeprazole has no effect on H. pylori status in most patients.

To explore whether proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) possess anti-inflammatory effects on microglia, we investigated the effect of lansoprazole (LPZ) and omeprazole (OPZ) on the toxic action towards SH-SY5Y neuroblastoma cells of supernatants from human microglia and THP-1 cells stimulated by lipopolysaccharide combined with interferon-gamma. In addition, we studied the effect of LPZ and OPZ on the THP-1 cell production of the pro-inflammatory cytokines tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-alpha and interleukin (IL)-6 using enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays. We found that both PPIs had a protective effect on the toxicity of supernatants and that there was a synergism of this effect with S-ibuprofen (IBP), a typical non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID). A similar protective effect of LPZ was observed with supernatants from stimulated human microglia. We also found that both PPIs significantly reduced the TNF-alpha secretion from stimulated THP-1 cells in a concentration dependent manner and that there was a trend towards such reduction of IL-6. These results indicate that PPIs possess anti-inflammatory effects and can decrease human microglial and monocytic neurotoxicity. They suggest that PPIs combined with NSAIDs may be effective in the treatment of a broad spectrum of neurodegenerative diseases associated with activated microglia.
Fifteen normal subjects underwent simultaneous antroduodenal manometry, electrogastrography (EGG), and gastric emptying with dynamic antral scintigraphy (DAS). After 30 minutes of fasting manometry and EGG recording, subjects received either intravenous saline, ranitidine, or famotidine, followed by another 30 minutes recording and then three hours of postprandial recording after ingestion of a radiolabelled meal. Images were obtained every 10-15 minutes for three hours to measure gastric emptying and assess antral contractility. Similar testing was performed after omeprazole 20 mg daily for one week.

The effect of the pharmacokinetic variables AUC and C(max) of esomeprazole on %pH>4 can be adequately described by a model using a logistic function for %pH>4 and a normally distributed error. In this model, log-transformed AUC and C(max) were both statistically significant. The model showed that for a fixed AUC, a decrease in C(max) gives an increase in %pH>4. A decrease in AUC, keeping C(max) fixed, gives a decrease in %pH>4, but a simultaneous decrease in C(max) and AUC will result in a less pronounced decrease in %pH>4. The model may be used for predicting differences in %pH>4 between two formulations, based on assessments of AUC and C(max). Repeated dosing gave an increased %pH>4, where approximately half of the increase stemmed from increased AUC and C(max), and the rest could be attributable to the persistent blockade of the proton pumps. Food intake reduced AUC and C(max) but had no obvious effect on %pH>4, which is explained by a prolonged time period with quantifiable plasma concentrations.

PubMed and the Cochrane Library were searched for randomized controlled trials comparing esomeprazole with omeprazole at all doses up to February 2015. Trials were assessed by two reviewers for eligibility according to predefined study inclusion criteria. Meta-analysis was conducted using a random effects model, and heterogeneity in the estimated effects was investigated using meta-regression. Sensitivity analysis was performed to test the robustness of the findings.
In a prospective study 27 patients (13 women, 14 men; mean age 62 [45-83] years) with Helicobacter (H.) pylori associated disease received over 7 days pantoprazole (40 mg twice daily), clarithromycin (500 mg twice daily) and metronidazole (500 mg twice daily). Six patients had gastric ulcer, 4 duodenal ulcer, 4 erosive gastritis, 6 erosive duodenitis and 7 had H. pylori-positive functional dyspepsia. Pre-treatment oesophago-gastro-duodenoscopy was combined in 4 patients with antral and in 4 others with body-of-stomach biopsies to demonstrate H, pylori (urease test, specific culture and histology). The H. pylori status was checked with the 13C-urea breath test 4 weeks after the end of treatment. In addition, 9 patients with peptic ulcer were examined endoscopically at least 2 weeks after onset of the treatment to check for any healing of the ulcers, 25 of the patients completed the study according to the protocol. The H. pylori eradication rate was 100% (25 of 25 patients), while the "intention to treat" analysis gave a rate of 92.6% (25 of the 27 patients). The peptic ulcers were found to be healed in all 9 patients who had been endoscoped. One woman developed a reversible stomatitis, but the drug treatment did not have to be stopped. -These findings indicate that short-term triple treatment in the described manner is efficacious in curing H. pylori infection and any peptic ulcer. It is thus a highly promising treatment of H. pylori-associated diseases.

Omeprazole controls acid but not non-acid reflux. The GABA B agonist baclofen decreases acid reflux through the inhibition of transient lower oesophageal sphincter relaxations (TLESRs) and should similarly decrease non-acid reflux. Using combined multichannel intraluminal impedance and pH (MII/pH), we compared acid and non-acid reflux after placebo and baclofen.

Within both the patient and volunteers groups, there were no significant differences between day 1 and day 7 in any of the pharmacokinetic parameters including maximum concentration (Cmax), area under the concentration-time curve (AUC), and terminal half-life of elimination (t(1/2)). However, on both days 1 and 7, values were significantly higher in the patients than in the healthy volunteers. On day 7, Cmax was 1343 ng/mL in patients compared with 765 ng/mL in healthy volunteers, AUC was 3458 ng.h/mL vs. 1350 ng.h/mL and t(1/2) was 1.62 h vs. 0.90 h.
