ABSTRACT
The article reports on a statement published by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on its Web site that the drugs omeprazole and esomeprazole are not associated with increased rates of cardiac events. FDA reviewed the two studies presented by AstraZeneca which raise the question of whether long-term use of the drugs could increase the risk of cardiovascular events including sudden death. The agency concluded that long-term use of the drugs does not pose risk of heart problems.
