Esomeprazole is a proton pump inhibitor and S-isomer of Omeprazole. Esomeprazole suppresses gastric acid secretion by specific inhibition of the H+/K+-ATPase in the gastric parietal cells. By acting specially on the proton pump, Esomeprazole blocks the final step in acid production, thus reducing gastric acidity. Esomeprazole concentrated and converted to the active form in the acid environment of the secretory canaliculi and inhibits the enzyme H+/K+-ATPase - THE Acid Pump.
