MECHANISM OF ACTION
PANCLON is a combination of pantoprazole and domperidone. Pantoprazole inhibits the H + /K + – AT Pase enzyme, which is responsible for gastric acid secretion in the parietal cells of the stomach and irreversibly black the final step of acid secretion. It increases motility of GI tract by inhibiting the action of dopamine and fastens gastric emptying.
Pantoprazole is unstable in acid and is administered orally in the form of an enteric-coated tablet. Absorption takes place in the small intestine. On average, the maximum serum/plasma concentrations are approximately 2 to 3 micrograms/ml about 2 ½ hrs after administration of 40 mg pantoprazole daily. Domperidone: In man, peak plasma level of domperidone occurs within 30 minutes after oral (fasted) administration. Peak plasma concentrations are 20 ng/ml after a single 10mg tablet, and 70 to 100 ng/ml after oral doses of 60 mg. After oral administration of 40 g 4-domperidone to healthy volunteers, 31st, of the radioactivity is excreted in the urine and 66 % in the faeces over a period of 4 days.
