Proton Pump Inhibitors (PPIs) are a group of drugs which were introduced in the 1980s to provide long-lasting reduction of gastric acid production. PPIs would treat acid-related disorders of the upper gastrointestinal tract, including peptic ulcers and acid reflux disorders. These drugs are available by prescription and over-the-counter.
One of the more serious side effects of PPIs is Acute Interstitial Nephritis (AIN) which is a condition where the spaces between the tubules of the kidney cells become inflamed. This injury is more profound in individuals over 60 years old. While most individuals recover from AIN, most will have some level of permanent kidney function loss. In rare cases, the individual will require a kidney transplant.
