Lanzol

What is Lanzol?

Lansoprazole ( ; INN) is a proton-pump inhibitor (PPI) which inhibits the stomach's production of gastric acids. It is manufactured by a number of companies worldwide under several brand names. In the United States, it was first approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 1995. Prevacid patent protection expired on November 10, 2009. Since 2009, lansoprazole has been available over the counter (OTC) in the U.S. in a 15-mg dose marketed by Novartis as Prevacid 24HR. In Australia, it is marketed by Pfizer as Zoton.

Lansoprazole is a proton-pump inhibitor (PPI) in the same pharmacologic class as omeprazole. Lansoprazole has been marketed for many years and is one of several PPIs available. It is a racemic 1:1 mixture of the enantiomers dexlansoprazole (Dexilant, formerly named Kapidex) and levolansoprazole. Dexlansoprazole is an enantiomerically pure active ingredient of a commercial drug as a result of the 'enantiomeric shift'.

Lansoprazole's plasma elimination half-life (1.5 h) is not proportional to the duration of the drug's effects to the person (i.e. gastric acid suppression). Lansoprazole, 30-mg administered nasogastrically, effectively controls intragastric pH and is an alternative to intravenous pantoprazole in patients who are unable to swallow solid-dose formulations.
