Proton pump inhibitors

Bind to proton pump of parietal cells, inhibiting the secretion of hydrogen ions into the gastric lumen. Relieve pain and heal peptic ulcers more rapidly than H2 antagonists.

Lansoprazole (Prevacid)

Works by inhibiting the H+/K+ -ATPase enzyme system of the gastric parietal cells.

Omeprazole (Prilosec)

Decreases gastric acid secretion by inhibiting parietal cell H+/K+ -ATP pump.
