What is Kapidex?
What does Kapidex look like?

What should I talk to my health care provider before I take Kapidex?
Pregnancy Category B. There are no adequate and well-controlled studies with dexlansoprazole in pregnant women. There were no adverse fetal effects in animal reproduction studies of dexlansoprazole in rabbits. Because animal reproduction studies are not always predictive of human response, KAPIDEX should be used during pregnancy only if clearly needed.
A reproduction study conducted in rabbits at oral dexlansoprazole doses up to 30 mg per kg per day (approximately 9-fold the maximum recommended human dexlansoprazole dose [60 mg] based on body surface area [BSA]) revealed no evidence of harm to the fetus due to dexlansoprazole. In addition, reproduction studies performed in pregnant rats with oral lansoprazole at doses up to 150 mg per kg per day (40 times the recommended human dose based on BSA) and in pregnant rabbits at oral lansoprazole doses up to 30 mg per kg per day (16 times the recommended human dose based on BSA) revealed no evidence of impaired fertility or harm to the fetus due to lansoprazole.
It is not known whether dexlansoprazole is excreted in human milk. However, lansoprazole and its metabolites are present in rat milk following the administration of lansoprazole. As many drugs are excreted in human milk, and because of the potential for tumorigenicity shown for lansoprazole in rat carcinogenicity studies , a decision should be made whether to discontinue nursing or to discontinue the drug, taking into account the importance of the drug to the mother.
Safety and effectiveness of KAPIDEX in pediatric patients (less than 18 years of age) have not been established.
In clinical studies of KAPIDEX, 11% of patients were aged 65 years and over. No overall differences in safety or effectiveness were observed between these patients and younger patients, and other reported clinical experience has not identified significant differences in responses between geriatric and younger patients, but greater sensitivity of some older individuals cannot be ruled out .
No dosage adjustment of KAPIDEX is necessary in patients with renal impairment. The pharmacokinetics of dexlansoprazole in patients with renal impairment are not expected to be altered since dexlansoprazole is extensively metabolized in the liver to inactive metabolites, and no parent drug is recovered in the urine following an oral dose of dexlansoprazole
No dosage adjustment for KAPIDEX is necessary for patients with mild hepatic impairment (Child-Pugh Class A). KAPIDEX 30 mg should be considered for patients with moderate hepatic impairment (Child-Pugh Class B). No studies have been conducted in patients with severe hepatic impairment (Child-Pugh Class C)
How should I use Kapidex?
KAPIDEX is indicated for healing of all grades of erosive
esophagitis (EE) for up to 8 weeks.
KAPIDEX is indicated to maintain healing of EE for up to 6 months.
KAPIDEX is indicated for the treatment of heartburn associated with non-erosive gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) for 4 weeks.
KAPIDEX is available as capsules in 30 mg and 60 mg strengths for adult use. Directions for use in each indication are summarized in Table 1.
No adjustment for KAPIDEX is necessary for patients with mild hepatic impairment (Child-Pugh Class A). Consider a maximum daily dose of 30 mg for patients with moderate hepatic impairment (Child-Pugh Class B). No studies have been conducted in patients with severe hepatic impairment (Child-Pugh Class C)
No dosage adjustment is necessary for elderly patients or for patients with renal impairment .
KAPIDEX can be taken without regard to food.
KAPIDEX should be swallowed whole.

Chemical StructureNo Image found
Dexlansoprazole is a PPI that suppresses gastric acid secretion
by specific inhibition of the (H,K)-ATPase in the gastric parietal cell. By acting specifically
on the proton pump, dexlansoprazole blocks the final step of acid
The effects of KAPIDEX 60 mg (n = 20) or lansoprazole 30 mg (n = 23) once daily for five days on 24-hour intragastric pH were assessed in healthy subjects in a multiple-dose crossover study. The results are summarized in Table 3.
Serum Gastrin Effects
The effect of KAPIDEX on serum gastrin concentrations was evaluated in approximately 3460 patients in clinical trials up to 8 weeks and in 1023 patients for up to 6 to 12 months. The mean fasting gastrin concentrations increased from baseline during treatment with KAPIDEX 30 mg and 60 mg doses. In patients treated for more than 6 months, mean serum gastrin levels increased during approximately the first 3 months of treatment and were stable for the remainder of treatment. Mean serum gastrin levels returned to pre-treatment levels within one month of discontinuation of treatment.
Enterochromaffin-Like Cell (ECL) Effects
There were no reports of ECL cell hyperplasia in gastric biopsy specimens obtained from 653 patients treated with KAPIDEX 30 mg, 60 mg or 90 mg for up to 12 months.
During lifetime exposure of rats dosed daily with up to 150 mg per kg per day of lansoprazole, marked hypergastrinemia was observed followed by ECL cell proliferation and formation of carcinoid tumors, especially in female rats .
Effect on Cardiac Repolarization
A study was conducted to assess the potential of KAPIDEX to prolong the QT/QT interval in healthy adult subjects. KAPIDEX doses of 90 mg or 300 mg did not delay cardiac repolarization compared to placebo. The positive control (moxifloxacin) produced statistically significantly greater mean maximum and time-averaged QT/QTintervals compared to placebo.
The dual delayed release formulation of KAPIDEX results in a dexlansoprazole plasma concentration-time profile with two distinct peaks; the first peak occurs 1 to 2 hours after administration, followed by a second peak within 4 to 5 hours (see ). Dexlansoprazole is eliminated with a half-life of approximately 1 to 2 hours in healthy subjects and in patients with symptomatic GERD. No accumulation of dexlansoprazole occurs after multiple, once daily doses of KAPIDEX 30 mg or 60 mg, although mean AUC and C values of dexlansoprazole were slightly higher (less than 10%) on day 5 than on day 1.
Figure 1: Mean Plasma Dexlansoprazole Concentration – Time Profile Following Oral Administration of 30 or 60 mg KAPIDEXOnce Daily for 5 Days in Healthy Subjects
The pharmacokinetics of dexlansoprazole are highly variable, with percent coefficient of variation (CV%) values for C, AUC, and CL/F of greater than 30% (see ).
After oral administration of KAPIDEX 30 mg or 60 mg to healthy subjects and symptomatic GERD patients, mean C and AUC values of dexlansoprazole increased approximately dose proportionally (see ).
Plasma protein binding of dexlansoprazole ranged from 96.1% to 98.8% in healthy subjects and was independent of concentration from 0.01 to 20 mcg per mL. The apparent volume of distribution (V/F) after multiple doses in symptomatic GERD patients was 40.3 L.
Dexlansoprazole is extensively metabolized in the liver by oxidation, reduction, and subsequent formation of sulfate, glucuronide and glutathione conjugates to inactive metabolites. Oxidative metabolites are formed by the cytochrome P450 (CYP) enzyme system including hydroxylation mainly by CYP2C19, and oxidation to the sulfone by CYP3A4.
CYP2C19 is a polymorphic liver enzyme which exhibits three phenotypes in the metabolism of CYP2C19 substrates; extensive metabolizers (*1/*1), intermediate metabolizers (*1/mutant) and poor metabolizers (mutant/mutant). Dexlansoprazole is the major circulating component in plasma regardless of CYP2C19 metabolizer status. In CYP2C19 intermediate and extensive metabolizers, the major plasma metabolites are 5-hydroxy dexlansoprazole and its glucuronide conjugate, while in CYP2C19 poor metabolizers dexlansoprazole sulfone is the major plasma metabolite.
Following the administration of KAPIDEX, no unchanged dexlansoprazole is excreted in urine. Following the administration of [C]dexlansoprazole to 6 healthy male subjects, approximately 50.7% (standard deviation (SD): 9.0%) of the administered radioactivity was excreted in urine and 47.6% (SD: 7.3%) in the feces. Apparent clearance (CL/F) in healthy subjects was 11.4 to 11.6 L/h, respectively, after 5-days of 30 or 60 mg once daily administration.
Effect of CYP2C19 Polymorphism on Systemic Exposure of Dexlansoprazole
Systemic exposure of dexlansoprazole is generally higher in intermediate and poor metabolizers. In male Japanese subjects who received a single dose of KAPIDEX 30 mg or 60 mg (N=2 to 6 subjects/group), mean dexlansoprazole C and AUC values were up to 2 times higher in intermediate compared to extensive metabolizers; in poor metabolizers, mean C was up to 4 times higher and mean AUC was up to 12 times higher compared to extensive metabolizers. Though such study was not conducted in Caucasians and African Americans, it is expected dexlansoprazole exposure in these races will be affected by CYP2C19 phenotypes as well.
In food-effect studies in healthy subjects receiving KAPIDEX under various fed conditions compared to fasting, increases in C ranged from 12% to 55%, increases in AUC ranged from 9% to 37%, and t varied (ranging from a decrease of 0.7 hours to an increase of 3 hours). No significant differences in mean intragastric pH were observed between fasted and various fed conditions. However, the percentage of time intragastric pH exceeded 4 over the 24-hour dosing interval decreased slightly when KAPIDEX was administered after a meal (57%) relative to fasting (64%), primarily due to a decreased response in intragastric pH during the first 4 hours after dosing. Because of this, while KAPIDEX can be taken without regard to food, some patients may benefit from administering the dose prior to a meal if post-meal symptoms do not resolve under post-fed conditions.
The pharmacokinetics of dexlansoprazole in patients under the age of 18 years have not been studied.
The terminal elimination half-life of dexlansoprazole is significantly increased in geriatric subjects compared to younger subjects (2.23 and 1.5 hours, respectively); this difference is not clinically relevant. Dexlansoprazole exhibited higher systemic exposure (AUC) in geriatric subjects (34.5% higher) than younger subjects. No dosage adjustment is needed in geriatric patients
Dexlansoprazole is extensively metabolized in the liver to inactive metabolites, and no parent drug is recovered in the urine following an oral dose of dexlansoprazole. Therefore, the pharmacokinetics of dexlansoprazole are not expected to be altered in patients with renal impairment, and no studies were conducted in subjects with renal impairment . In addition, the pharmacokinetics of lansoprazole were studied in patients with mild, moderate or severe renal impairment; results demonstrated no need for a dose adjustment for this patient population
In a study of 12 patients with moderately impaired hepatic function who received a single oral dose of KAPIDEX 60 mg, plasma exposure (AUC) of bound and unbound dexlansoprazole in the hepatic impairment group was approximately 2 times greater compared to subjects with normal hepatic function. This difference in exposure was not due to a difference in protein binding between the two liver function groups. No adjustment for KAPIDEX is necessary for patients with mild hepatic impairment (Child-Pugh Class A). KAPIDEX 30 mg should be considered for patients with moderate hepatic impairment (Child-Pugh Class B). No studies have been conducted in patients with severe hepatic impairment (Child-Pugh Class C)
In a study of 12 male and 12 female healthy subjects who received a single oral dose of KAPIDEX 60 mg, females had higher systemic exposure (AUC) (42.8% higher) than males. No dosage adjustment is necessary in patients based on gender.
In a study of 20 healthy subjects, co-administration of KAPIDEX 90 mg once daily for 11 days with a single 25 mg oral dose of warfarin on day 6 did not result in any significant differences in the pharmacokinetics of warfarin or INR compared to administration of warfarin with placebo. However, there have been reports of increased INR and prothrombin time in patients receiving PPIs and warfarin concomitantly .
Cytochrome P 450 Interactions
Dexlansoprazole is metabolized, in part, by CYP2C19 and CYP3A4 .
In vitro studies have shown that KAPIDEX is not likely to inhibit CYP isoforms 1A1, 1A2, 2A6, 2B6, 2C8, 2C9, 2C19, 2D6, 2E1 or 3A4. As such, no clinically relevant interactions with drugs metabolized by these CYP enzymes would be expected. Furthermore, clinical drug-drug interaction studies in mainly CYP2C19 extensive and intermediate metabolizers have shown that KAPIDEX does not affect the pharmacokinetics of diazepam, phenytoin, or theophylline. The subjects' CYP1A2 genotypes in the drug-drug interaction study with theophylline were not determined.
Non-Clinical ToxicologyKAPIDEX is contraindicated in patients with known hypersensitivity to any component of the formulation . Hypersensitivity and anaphylaxis have been reported with KAPIDEX use .
Increased nephrotoxicity has been reported following concomitant administration of cephalosporins and aminoglycoside antibiotics.
Symptomatic response with KAPIDEX does not preclude the presence of gastric malignancy.
The safety of KAPIDEX was evaluated in 4548 patients in controlled and uncontrolled clinical studies, including 863 patients treated for at least 6 months and 203 patients treated for one year. Patients ranged in age from 18 to 90 years (median age 48 years), with 54% female, 85% Caucasian, 8% Black, 4% Asian, and 3% other races. Six randomized controlled clinical trials were conducted for the treatment of EE, maintenance of healed EE, and symptomatic GERD, which included 896 patients on placebo, 455 patients on KAPIDEX 30 mg, 2218 patients on KAPIDEX 60 mg, and 1363 patients on lansoprazole 30 mg once daily.
As clinical trials are conducted under widely varying conditions, adverse reaction rates observed in the clinical trials of a drug cannot be directly compared to rates in the clinical trials of another drug and may not reflect the rates observed in practice.
