Abstract

The pharmacokinetic profile of omeprazole was examined in 27 healthy Japanese volunteers, and the results were analyzed in relation to genotype for the two mutations, CYP2C19(m1) in exon 5 and CYP2C19(m2) in exon 4, associated with the poor metabolizer phenotype. Of the 27 individuals analyzed, 10 were homozygous for the wild-type (wt) allele in both exon 5 and exon 4 (wt/wt; 37.0%, pattern G1), five were heterozygous for the CYP2C19(m1) (wt/ml; 18.5%, G2), five were heterozygous for the CYP2C19(m2) (wt/m2; 18.5%, G3), two were heterozygous for the two defects (m1/m2; 7.4%, G4), and five were homozygous for the CYP2C19(m1) (ml/ml; 18.5%, G5). The allele frequencies of the m1 and m2 mutation were 0.31 and 0.13, respectively. A correlation between the rate of metabolism of omeprazole and genotype was observed. The mean clearance values of omeprazole in patterns G1, G2, G3, G4, and G5 were 1369.0, 332.7, 359.0, 70.8, and 89.5 ml/hr/kg, respectively. The relative area under the serum concentration-time curve (AUC) ratio of omeprazole to 5-hydroxyomeprazole in patterns G1, G2, G3, G4, and G5 was 1:2.8:3.4:16:17.2. A similar relation was observed in the omeprazole/5-hydroxyomeprazole serum concentration ratio, determined 3 hours after drug intake (1:3:4:18.8:20.3). There were significant (p < 0.05 to 0.01) differences in the disposition kinetics of omeprazole between the subjects with patterns G1, G2, and G3 and the subjects with patterns G4 and G5. The results indicate that the 5-hydroxylation pathway of omeprazole is clearly impaired in subjects with m1/m2 and m1/m1.
