美 FDA, 'PPI 제제 골절 위험 높일 수 있다' 주의

지난 5월 17일자 Research Trends Sharing 8호에서 다룬 PPI(Proton pump inhibitor, 양자 펌프 억제제) 사용과 골절 관련 논문 발표 이후 FDA에서 PPI와 골절 위험에 대해 공식적으로 언급했습니다.

관련링크 : FDA Drug Safety Communication: Possible increased risk of fractures of the hip, wrist, and spine with the use of proton pump inhibitors

FDA는 25일 웹사이트와 이메일을 통해 '여러 역학조사를 검토한 결과 위궤양 치료에 사용하는 양자 펌프 억제제 (PPI 제제, eg. 오메프라졸 등)가 고관절, 팔목, 척추 골절 위험을 높인다고 발표했습니다. 특히 고용량 PPI 처방을 받을 경우 그 위험이 높아진다는 역학조사가 있었다고도 밝혔습니다.

이에따라 의사들은 PPI 사용에 따른 골절 위험에 대해 숙지하고 사용 전 약물 사용에 따른 환자의 득과 실에 대해 검토할 것을 권했습니다.

PPI는 위궤양이나 위식도 역류, 식도염 치료 및 약물로 인한 위장 손상 예방을 위해서 사용되고 있으며 현재 PPI 제제를 복용 중인 환자라고 하더라도 이 소식을 듣고 약물을 중단할 필요는 없습니다. 골절 위험이 매우 높아진 경우는 수년간 고용량으로 복용한 일부 환자들이었습니다만, 관련하여 걱정이 된다면 주치의와 상담을 먼저 하시길 당부드립니다.

FDA가 리뷰한 논문들 정보는 아래 표에서 확인하실 수 있습니다.
