PRILOSEC ACTION MECHANISM
Prilosec belongs to class of antisecretory compounds that act as selective and irreversible proton pump inhibitor. Prilosec works by suppressing gastric acid secretion by inhibition of hydrogen–potassium adenosinetriphosphatase enzyme system, found at secretary surface of parietal cells. It inhibits final transport of hydrogen ions into gastric lumen. Prilosec inhibits both basal and stimulated acid secretion irrespective of stimulus.
