New Study Results Analyzed the Use of KAPIDEX(TM) (dexlansoprazole) for Nighttime Heartburn in Adults with Non-Erosive GERD
Date:10/26/2009

ericans. GERD is often characterized by frequent and persistent heartburn that occurs two or more days a week despite treatment and diet changes. GERD can affect both men and women, and symptoms are often triggered by certain foods, stress or pressure on the stomach. Up to 70 percent of GERD patients have non-erosive GERD, a term used to describe symptoms suggestive of GERD in patients with no endoscopic evidence of EE.

About KAPIDEX(TM) (dexlansoprazole) delayed release capsules

KAPIDEX (dexlansoprazole) delayed release capsules is a proton pump inhibitor (PPI), which decreases acid production by turning off many of the acid pumps in the stomach, thus helping to protect the esophagus from acidic reflux so that esophageal inflammation can heal. KAPIDEX combines an enantiomer of lansoprazole with a Dual Delayed Release(TM) (DDR) formulation designed to provide two separate releases of medication. KAPIDEX, taken once daily, is approved for the healing of all grades of erosive esophagitis (EE) for up to eight weeks, maintaining healing of EE for up to six months, and treating heartburn associated with symptomatic non-erosive gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) for four weeks.

Important Safety Information

KAPIDEX is contraindicated in patients with known hypersensitivity to any component of the formulation. Hypersensitivity and anaphylaxis have been reported with KAPIDEX use. Symptomatic response with KAPIDEX does not preclude the presence of gastric malignancy. The most commonly reported treatment-emergent adverse reactions (greater than or equal to 2%) include diarrhea (4.8%), abdominal pain (4.0%), nausea (2.9%), upper respiratory tract infection (1.9%), vomiting (1.6%), and flatulence (1.6%). KAPIDEX must not be co-administered with atazanavir because atazanavir systemic concentrations may be substantially decreased. KAPIDEX may interfere with the absorption of drugs for which gastric pH is important for b
