PPIs NOT Linked to Cognitive Decline/Dementia & PPIs NOT Linked to Heart Attacks

In a prospective study (M Wod et al. Clin Gastroenterol Hepatol 2018; 16: 681-89), data on middle-aged (n=2346, 46-67 yrs) and older individuals (n=2475) were collected in the Longitudinal Study of Aging Danish Twins.  This study showed that there was no difference in cognitive decline between PPI users and non-users.

The second study (SN Landi et al. Gastroenterol 2018; 154: 861-73) used a large administrative database and reviewed more than 5 million new  users of prescription PPIs and prescription H2RAs.  The authors found no significant difference in myocardial infarctions (MIs) between PPIs and H2RAs over a 12 month period.
