Validation of a Non-invasive In-vitro Diagnostic Test (Peptest) Against Other Diagnostic Methods for GERD

Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) mainly manifests as three types, erosive esophagitis (EE), non-erosive reflux disease (NERD) and Barrett's esophagus. EE is characterized by damaged distal esophageal mucosa which is visible by endoscope, and also referred to as "endoscopically positive gastroesophageal reflux disease". NERD is defined as discomfort related to reflux ...

Phase N/A

Medigus Ultrasonic Surgical Endostapler (MUSE) Registry

The registry evaluates the MUSE System which creates a transoral anterior fundoplication for the treatment of GERD. The system enables the operator to staple the fundus of the stomach to the esophagus approximately 3cm superior to the Z-line in 2 or more locations. The procedure is performed transorally under general ...

Phase N/A

Cytosponge Adequacy Study Evaluation II

This is a cross-sectional study of subjects with Barrett's esophagus (BE) to assess the utility of the Cytosponge device as a non-endoscopic method for collecting surface cells from the esophagus. This study will enroll 2 groups of subjects: 1) Subjects presenting for routine endoscopic BE surveillance examinations (n=120), and 2) ...

Phase N/A

EndoStim Patient Registry

To provide a research tool enabling physicians to monitor long term clinical outcomes for patients undergoing gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) treatment with EndoStim LES Stimulation System.

Phase N/A

Radiofrequency Ablation in Patients With Barrett's Esophagus

For treatment of Barrett's Esophagus (BE), a condition considered as a complication of the gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), radiofrequency ablation (RFA) was introduced as a new method over 10 years ago. This method is already established in treating low- and high-grade dysplastic BE, but there is also a recommendation in ...

Phase N/A

Barrett's Esophagus Patient Registry

The ultimate goal of the Barrett's Esophagus Patient Registry is to help develop more effective targeted screening strategies and treatment options for Barrett's esophagus and esophageal adenocarcinoma (EAC). We plan to do by developing a registry that will serve as a platform. Examples of analyses could include identifying genetic determinants ...

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 ...

Phase N/A

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. ...

Phase N/A

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 ...

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) ...
