A randomized comparative study to determine the effect of omeprazole on the peak serum concentration of itraconazole oral solution.
To determine the effect of omeprazole on peak serum concentrations (C(max)) of itraconazole oral solution (IOS), we carried out a randomized, open-label, prospective, crossover study. Fifteen healthy, non-pregnant adults received a single dose of IOS 400 mg on two occasions, at least 7 days apart, with omeprazole 40 mg nightly for 7 days before either IOS dose 1 or 2. C(max), time to C(max) (T(max)) and AUC(0-8) were determined for itraconazole and its active metabolite, hydroxyitraconazole, for each dose and compared. Omeprazole did not significantly affect the C(max), T(max) or AUC(0-8) of itraconazole or hydroxyitraconazole when administered as IOS.
