Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

The aim of this study was to evaluate the effects and safety of different doses of ilaprazole on healthy volunteers without a Helicobacter pylori infection.

METHODS:

A total of 12 healthy Chinese volunteers were enrolled and divided into four groups randomly, with a 5-day treatment of oral ilaprazole 5mg, 10mg and 20mg or omeprazole 20mg, respectively. After an interval of a 14-day washout phase, each was switched to another dose group and eventually completed all four regimens. The percentage time of intragastric pH>4 was the major index. The polymorphisms of the metabolic enzyme CYP2C19 in these volunteers were also detected.

RESULTS:

The percentage time of intragastric pH>4 in the ilaprazole 5, 10 and 20mg groups were 80.4%, 88.1% and 91.0%, respectively, during the first 24h, compared to that of the 20mg omeprazole group (76.6%, P>0.05). Ilaprazole 20mg provided a significant higher mean 24-h pH than that of the same dose of omeprazole both on Day 1 (7.78 vs 6.67, P<0.01) and Day 5 (7.95 vs 7.44, P<0.05). No CYP2C19-dependent difference or obvious adverse effect were found in any ilaprazole groups.

CONCLUSION:

Low dose ilaprazole offers a gastric acid inhibition comparable to a routine dose of omeprazole, and further investigations in patients with acid-associated diseases are needed.
