Alginate acts via a unique mechanism by creating a mechanical barrier that displaces the postprandial acid pocket. In the presence of gastric acid, they precipitate into a gel and form a raft that localizes to the acid pocket in the proximal stomach.
Antacid neutralizes stomach acidity; alginate-antacid formulation is used to relieve heartburn and other gastric symptoms.

Pantoprazole is a selective and long-acting proton pump inhibitor (PPI) clinically used for the management of acid-related diseases.
It blocks the final step in gastric acid secretion by specific inhibition of H+/K+ adenosine triphosphatase (ATPase) enzyme system present on the secretory surface of the gastric parietal cell. Both basal and stimulated acid are inhibited.
