BACKGROUND: Esomeprazole and rabeprazole are metabolised in the liver by means of
the CYP2C19 enzyme, which has several functional genetic polymorphisms. Among
Caucasians, 70% of the population has a fast metaboliser phenotype, 25-30% an
intermediate and 2-5% a slow metaboliser phenotype. It is unknown whether
different PPIs are affected to the same extent by these phenotypic differences.
AIM: To compare the acid-inhibitory effects of esomeprazole 40 mg and rabeprazole
20 mg in relation to CYP2C19 genotype and pharmacokinetics. METHODS: Eighteen
healthy Helicobacter pylori-negative Caucasian subjects with CYP2C19*2-*6 and *17
genotype were included in a randomised investigator-blinded crossover study with
esomeprazole 40 mg and rabeprazole 20 mg. Intragastric 24-h pH-monitoring was
performed on days 0, 1 and 5 of oral dosing. RESULTS: Onset of acid inhibition
during the first 4 h after administration did not differ significantly between
PPIs. During the upright period, the proportion of time with pH >4 was
significantly higher with esomeprazole compared to rabeprazole (52.2 vs. 40.3%,
P = 0.003). At day 1 and 5, acid inhibition was significantly greater with
esomeprazole than with rabeprazole (median intragastric pH: day 1: 3.7 vs. 3.0,
P = 0.008; day 5: 4.7 vs. 3.8, P < 0.001; percentage of time pH >4: day 1: 45 vs.
39%, P = 0.054; day 5: 65 vs. 48%, P < 0.001). Differences in acid inhibition
between wt/wt and wt/*2 genotype were significant for both PPIs. CONCLUSIONS:
Once-daily dosing with esomeprazole 40 mg provides a more effective and faster
acid-inhibitory effect than rabeprazole 20 mg. The acid-inhibitory effect of
esomeprazole and rabeprazole are both influenced by CYP2C19 polymorphism.
