RESULTS

Found (27) clinical trials

The purpose of this investigation is to demonstrate the safety and effectiveness of Lower Esophageal Sphincter (LES) Stimulation System in treating gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). This investigation is a multicenter, randomized, double-blind, sham-controlled study. After the implant procedure, subjects will be randomized to either the Treatment Group (immediate stimulation) or ...

Phase N/A

Do you have Eosinophilic Esophagitis (EOE)? Consult with your doctor if you have persistent symptoms. EoE symptoms can overlap with symptoms of a condition called gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). Do you have the following chronic symptoms of EoE? Food getting stuck in your throat Difficulty swallowing Chest pain, heart burn, ...

Phase N/A

Wake Research Associates is enrolling volunteers with EoE in a study testing the effectiveness, tolerability and safety of an investigational medication.

Phase N/A

Serial Exhaled Breath pH Monitoring

Acid reflux has been considered to be a key contributor to cough, particularly in patients with obstructive lung diseases. However, diagnosis has relied upon either responsiveness to high dose twice daily administration of proton pump inhibitor therapy or by 24 hour esophageal pH probes. This study is designed to provide ...

Clinical Trial Comparing Open and Laparoscopic Nissen Fundoplication in Children

Nissen fundoplication is a commonly performed procedure in infants and children with gastroesophageal reflux and a variety of other medical conditions including respiratory compromise, severe neurologic impairment, failure to thrive and swallowing dysfunction. Randomized controlled trials in adults have shown that laparoscopic fundoplication is a safe procedure that results in ...

Predicting Risk of Cancer in Barrett's Esophagus

Patients with Barrett's esophagus (BE) have an increased risk of esophageal adenocarcinoma which is 40-125 fold higher than in the general population. However, the current techniques of detecting dysplasia and observing abnormal p53 immunohistochemical staining are not accurate or reliable methods for determining which BE patients will progress to cancer. ...

Determinants of Efficacy of EsophyX Treatment in Gastro-Esophageal Reflux Disease

EsophyX is a promising endoscopic treatment for gastro-esophageal reflux disease. It is not known whether there are some pre- or per-operative anatomic or pathophysiological findings which may influence outcome. The aim of this trial is to study a series of parameters acquired during the pre-therapeutic work-up or during the procedure ...

The Use of Proton Pump Inhibitor for the Treatment of Non-erosive Gastro-oesophageal Reflux Disease in Chinese Population

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy of proton pump inhibitor for the treatment of non-erosive reflux disease (NERD) in Chinese population. Studies from the western population have estimated a worldwide prevalence of gastro-oesophageal reflux disease from 10 to 20 %. Monthly symptoms of heartburn or acid ...

The Proton Pump Inhibitor (PPI) Test for the Extraesophageal Manifestation of GERD

PPI test;empirical trial with high-dose proton-pump inhibitors (PPIs) has been shown to be a sensitive tool for diagnosing patients with GERD. However, this diagnostic strategy has not been well established in patients with extraesophageal manifestation of GERD. In this study, we aim to see the relevance of PPI test in ...

Phase N/A

Progression of Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease and Barrett's Esophagus and the Creation of a Barrett's Registry

Symptoms of gastroesophageal reflux are common. It affects at least 40% of the adult American population and 40 million American adults experience reflux symptoms on a regular basis. Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) typically affects Caucasians and older males. It is a significant risk factor for development of Barrett's esophagus (BE) ...
