Abstract

Dexlansoprazole MR is the R-enantiomer of lansoprazole that is delivered by a novel system, the dual delayed release formulation. The drug has been shown to be efficacious in healing erosive esophagitis as compared with lansoprazole. When compared to placebo, dexlansoprazole provided significantly higher maintenance rates for healed esophageal mucosa in patients with erosive esophagitis and symptom control in patients with non-erosive reflux disease. Dexlansoprazole could be taken without regard to food. Overall, dexlansoprazole is well tolerated and has a comparable side-effect profile to lansoprazole.
