Questions And Answer

Drugs inhibiting the secretion of gastric acid
Nizatidine is a drug successfully developed by Eli Lilly Company (United State) for inhibiting the gastric acid secretion. In 1987, it was first approved for entering into the market of the United States with the trade name “aixi”. Nizatidine, as a kind of potent H2 receptor antagonist, acts on the gastric acid secretion cells and blocks the formation of stomach acid, leading to the reduction of the gastric acid. It can also inhibit the gastric acid secretion resulting from food and chemical stimuli such as gastrin and acetylcholine. The potency is similar to that of ranitidine and superior to that of cimetidine. Clinical studies have shown that the drug can significantly inhibit gastric acid secretion at night for as long as 10 h. Under normal conditions, the drug does not affect the activity of pepsin in the gastric juice but may affect the secretion amount. It has no female antiandrogen effect. It causes no adverse reactions to the cardiovascular nerve and endocrine system, nor does affect the activity of hepatic cytochrome P450 oxidase. It has good oral absorption with the bioavailability being greater than 90% with PBP accounting for 30% and another 30% binding to the cells. t1/2 is about 1.3h with 90% to 100% excreted from the urine within 16h after the treatment, of which 65% to 75% is in the form of prototype, 6% is in the form N2-oxide, 8% is the N2-single demethylation compound. The saliva concentration is only about 1/3 of the plasma. The elimination half-life of the patients of renal failure patients is about 7h. Mild to moderate damage of the liver damage does not affect the metabolism of this product.
[Indications] it is suitable for the treatment of gastric and duodenal ulcers, gastroesophageal reflux disease and prevention of the recurrence of duodenal ulcer.
[Usage and dosage] Oral: stomach and duodenal ulcer; apply single administration of 300 mg before sleeping with the treatment course lasting for 4 to 8 weeks. You may also administer per time in both morning and evening with the dose of 150 mg each time; the maintenance dosage for the treatment of duodenal ulcer is 150 mg per night; for the treatment of gastroesophageal reflux disease, take 150 mg each time with 2 times per day and the treatment course should be more than 12 weeks; for prevention of ulcer, administer 150 mg once before sleeping.

The antagonist of the H2 receptor
H2 receptor antagonists are a class of effective gastric acid secretion inhibitors. Those drugs which currently have entered clinical application include cimetidine, ranitidine, famotidine, nizatidine and roxatidine. These drugs can competitively inhibit the binding of histamine with the H2 receptor of the parietal cells, thereby reducing the intracellular cAMP levels and gastric acid secretion. H2 receptor antagonists can also inhibit the fundamental gastric acid secretion as well as the gastric acid secretion occurring at night, but has no inhibitory effect on the gastric acid secretion stimulated by having meal. Administration of H2 receptor antagonists for 2 to 4 times daily can significantly increase the gastric pH of the nighttime but has only moderate effect on the daytime pH. For patients of peptic ulcer with no complication, the efficacy of taking twice daily is the same as that of taking once daily before sleeping. The recommended dose for the patients in the acute phase of peptic ulcer (once daily before sleeping) is: cimetidine: 800mg, ranitidine and nizatidine: 300 mg, famotidine: 40mg. The ulcer symptoms are usually completely alleviated within 2 weeks. The healing rate of duodenal ulcer in the 6 weeks to 8 weeks treatment course is about 85% to 90%. The healing of the stomach ulcer is two to four weeks later than that of the duodenal ulcer but when the treatment course is extended to 8 weeks, it can mostly get healed in most cases.
Patients have a well tolerance on the H2 receptor antagonists and rarely get serious side effects. The incidence of central nervous system symptoms such as headache, confusion and sleepiness is approximately 1%, particularly under intravenous infusion. Cimetidine can inhibit the metabolism of the P450 drug in the liver and can cause change on the serum concentration of drugs such as warfarin, theophylline, lidocaine and phenytoin. The ability of ranitidine in binding to P450 is one-tenth of that of cimetidine. Moreover, the effect of both famotidine and nizatidine effect is also very slight. Cimetidine can inhibit the metabolism of estradiol and testis acid dione which may lead to impotence and feminization of male breast. These cases are especially prevalent upon high-dose treatment.
The above information is edited by the chemicalbook of Dai Xiongfeng.
The value of nizatidine in the treatment of peptic ulcer disease is comparable with that of ranitidine and cimetidine. 1 or 2 times daily dosing can typically cure duodenal ulcer within 8 weeks; a single dose administration daily can prevent recurrence (Bianchi-Porro and Keohane, 1987; Stern, 1988). The efficacy of nizatidine in the treatment of stomach ulcers is similar as that of other H2-blockers but with little information available. For reflux esophagitis, Zollinger-Ellison syndrome and other kinds of peptic ulcer diseases, it is expected to generate a equal effect as ranitidine but this still needs clinical studies.
Side effects
This kind of drug can be well tolerated. It has been noted of some mild adverse reactions of the gastrointestinal tract. During the clinical trials, the elevated level of serum uric acid and transaminase observed in few patients are not clinically significant. Similar as other kinds of H2 receptor antagonists, the potential liver toxicity of applications of is low. Application of high dose to rats had ever produced anti-androgen effect, but this effect had not been observed in clinical trials of therapeutic doses (Stern, 1988). Nizatidine be classified as FDA pregnancy category C.
Drug Interactions
1. This product can increase gastric pH, increase the midazolam absorption. Take caution when these two drugs are combined.
2. The product, when used in combination with ceftibuten, can increase the incidence of adverse reactions (such as nausea, diarrhea, headache) caused by the later one.
3. The product, if being used in combination with cefditoren, can reduce the plasma concentration of the latter one.
4. The product can increase gastric pH, resulting in decreased absorption of cefpodoxime and delavirdine.
5. This product can reduce the absorption of itraconazole, reducing its efficacy. When these two drugs are combined, the latter drug should be subject to oral administration together with cola drinks.
1. Patients allergic to this product, patients of liver and kidney dysfunction, pregnant women, lactating women and children should take with caution.
2. It can be used to cover the symptoms of stomach cancer, and can cause false positive to the urobilinogen determination.
