- Strategies for discontinuation of proton pump inhibitors: a systematic review. Haastrup, Peter; Paulsen, Maja S; Begtrup, Luise M; Hansen, Jane M; Jarbøl, Dorte E // Family Practice;Dec2014, Vol. 31 Issue 6, p625
Purpose. Proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) are considered to be overprescribed. Consensus on how to attempt discontinuation is, however, lacking. We therefore conducted a systematic review of clinical studies on discontinuation of PPIs. Methods. Systematic review based on clinical studies...
- Meta-analyses: Does Long-term PPI use Increase the Risk of Gastric Premalignant Lesions? Eslami, Layli; Nasseri-Moghaddam, Siavosh // Archives of Iranian Medicine (AIM);Aug2013, Vol. 16 Issue 8, p449
Background: Proton pump inhibitors (PPis) are the most effective agents available for reducing acid secretion. They are used for medical treatment of various acid-related disorders. PPis are used extensively and for extended periods of time in gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). A...
- Risk of Community-Acquired Pneumonia with Outpatient Proton-Pump Inhibitor Therapy: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis. Lambert, Allison A.; Lam, Jennifer O.; Paik, Julie J.; Ugarte-Gil, Cesar; Drummond, M. Bradley; Crowell, Trevor A. // PLoS ONE;Jun2015, Vol. 10 Issue 6, p1
Background: Proton-pump inhibitors (PPIs) are among the most frequently prescribed medications. Community-acquired pneumonia (CAP) is a common cause of morbidity, mortality and healthcare spending. Some studies suggest an increased risk of CAP among PPI users. We conducted a systematic review...
- PPI versus Histamine H2 Receptor Antagonists for Prevention of Upper Gastrointestinal Injury Associated with Low-Dose Aspirin: Systematic Review and Meta-analysis. Mo, Chen; Sun, Gang; Wang, Yan-Zhi; Lu, Ming-Liang; Yang, Yun-Sheng // PLoS ONE;7/6/2015, Vol. 10 Issue 7, p1
This study compared proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) and histamine H2 receptor antagonists (H2RAs) for prevention of low-dose aspirin (LDA)-related gastrointestinal (GI) erosion, ulcer and bleeding. Electronic databases including PubMed, Embase, Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials,...
- More evidence of PPI and pneumonia link. // Pulse;5/18/2011, Vol. 71 Issue 18, p10
The article reports on the role of proton-pump inhibitors (PPI) in increasing a patient's risk for pneumonia.
- Bleeding or Breathing? Rethinking Hospital Admission Orders. Phillips, Barbara A. // Internal Medicine Alert;8/15/2009, Vol. 31 Issue 15, p113
The article focuses on the fact that patients who were given the proton-pump inhibitors are at a greater risk of hospital-acquired pneumonia.
- Heartburn meds and pneumonia linked. // Clinical Advisor;Feb2011, Vol. 14 Issue 2, p24
The article focuses on the study which requires clinicians to use caution in prescribing acid-suppressive drugs for patients at risk for pneumonia due to the use of proton pump inhibitor (PPI) or histamine receptor antagonist that increases a person's chances of contracting the illness.
