Additional recommended knowledge
Rabeprazole is a prodrug (metabolized by the cytochrome P450 (or CYP450)) - in the acid environment of the parietal cells it turns into active sulphenamide form associated with cysteine of H+, K+ATPase (proton pump). Rabeprazole inhibits (partly reversibly) H+, K+ATPase of the coating gastric cells and dose-dependent oppresses basal and stimulated gastric acid secretion. Rabeprazole has anti Helicobacter pylori activity (MIC 4-16 mg/ml) and shows synergistic activity with some antibiotics. Rabeprazole has been demonstrated to be effective in patients with pathological hypersecretory activity (incl. Zollinger-Ellison Syndrome).
