Update: October 2018

Omeprazole – a popular drug from the group of organotropic
gastrointestinal agents used in the treatment of inflammatory –
destructive diseases of the digestive system. Renders
active inhibitory effect on the production of hydrochloric acid in
terminal stage of its synthesis. Omeprazole is standard
scheme of complex treatment of peptic ulcer.

pharmachologic effect

Omeprazole is an active anti-ulcer drug.
the action of inhibiting the enzyme H + / K + -adenosine triphosphate
(ATP) -phase.

The action of omeprazole is associated with inhibition of the activity of the indicated
enzyme, another name for which is the proton pump. Deactivation
enzyme occurs in the parietal cells of the stomach: blocked
transfer of hydrogen ions necessary for the implementation of the terminal
stages of the synthesis of hydrochloric acid.

Omeprazole is a prodrug, i.e. acts as
active metabolite. Under the influence of the acidic environment of the tubules
gastric parietal cells omeprazole for 2-4 minutes
biotransformed into sulfenamide, which reacts
blocking membrane H + / K + – adenosine triphosphate (ATP) -phase,
connecting to the enzyme through a disulfide bridge.

This mechanism of action explains the high selectivity
drug against parietal cells – it is in them
the medium required for the conversion of omeprazole into an active metabolite.
In this case, sulfenamide is not absorbed, since it is

  • Omeprazole has a suppressive effect on secretion as
    basal and stimulated salt food irritant
  • Inhibits pepsin production and reduces total secretion
  • In addition, omeprazole has gastroprotective activity.
    obscure mechanism.

Does not affect the formation of the internal factor Castle and
on the speed of passage of the food mass through the stomach in
duodenum; does not affect histamine and
acetylcholine receptors.

The microgranules in the capsules are coated with a thin shell,
the gradual release of which results in:

  • to the beginning of the action of the drug about 60 minutes after
  • reaching therapeutic maximum after 120 minutes
  • the effect of omeprazole persists for a day or more
  • inhibition of half of the maximum gastric secretion in the background
    reception 20 мг омепразола продолжается в течение суток.

Thus, a single dose of omeprazole during the day
quickly and effectively inhibits daytime and nighttime secretion of salt
acid. Inhibitory effect becomes maximal after 4 days
from the start of treatment. In patients with ulcerative lesions of the gastrointestinal mucosa
taking 20 mg of omeprazole leads to the maintenance of the pH inside the stomach inside the
for 17 hours. Прекращение reception омепразола приводит к
recovery of gastric secretory activity after 3-5 days.


It has high absorption. Bioavailability reaches 30-40%,
increases in older people, and when liver failure
comes to 100%. The drug has high lipophilicity,
as a result, it easily enters the parietal cells. Enters into
communication with plasma proteins (albumin and acid
alpha1-glycoprotein) up to 90-95%.

The half-life of about 0.5-1 h, increases to 3 h at
liver failure. Clearance – 500-600 ml / min.
Metabolized in the liver almost fully, forming 6
inactive metabolites. Inhibits CYP2C19 isoenzyme. About 70-80
% of the drug is excreted by the kidneys, and 20-30% by bile.

Chronic renal failure, advanced age leads to
reduce the rate of elimination of omeprazole in proportion to the decrease
Creatine clearance rate.
