Acid Pump Inhibitor.
Gastro-esophageal reflux disease (GERD), healing
of peptic ulcers, as part of therapy for eradication of Helicobacter
pylori and NSAIDs induced gastropathies.
Zoom (Esomeprazole) is the S-isomer of Omeprazole.
It inhibits gastric acid secretion more effectively than Omeprazole.
It works by binding irreversibly to the H+/K+ ATPase in the
proton pump. Because the proton pump is the final pathway for secretion of hydrochloric acid by the parietal cells in
the stomach, its inhibition dramatically decreases the secretion
of hydrochloric acid into the stomach and alters gastric pH.
