Proton pump inhibitors

What are Proton pump inhibitors

Proton pump inhibitors (also called PPIs) reduce the production of acid by the stomach. They do this by irreversibly blocking the actions of an enzyme responsible for acid production, H+/K+ ATPase, that is located in the parietal cells in the stomach wall.

This allows any ulcers present in the esophagus, stomach, and duodenum to heal and helps prevent new ulcers from forming. PPIs are also used to treat other gastrointestinal disorders characterized by excessive acid secretion.
