Suppression of phosphorylation of extracellular-signal-regulated kinase and p38 mitogen-activated protein kinase in polymorphonuclear leukocytes by the proton pump inhibitor lansoprazole.

Abstract

Lansoprazole (LPZ) is a proton pump inhibitor that suppresses gastric secretion and exerts anti-inflammatory effects on immune cells. Recently, LPZ has been used for the treatment of peptic ulcer and gastritis, which can be caused by Helicobacter pylori, due to its potent acid-suppressive effects.
