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

The Role of Gastroesophageal Reflux in Scleroderma Pulmonary Fibrosis

Scarring of the lungs is common in patients with scleroderma and is one of the main causes of death. Patients with scleroderma very frequently have problems with their gullet (esophagus), the food pipe that leads into the stomach. Normally, a small circular muscle at the base of the esophagus opens ...

Phase N/A

Phenotypic Characterization and Biomarkers Investigation for Eosinophilic Esophagitis in Pediatric Patients

This study collects clinical information from pediatric patients between 0-18 years old who have been undergoing upper gastrointestinal endoscopy due to general complaints. The demographic, clinical symptoms, endoscopy, pH monitoring, and histology data are assessed during the diagnostic process. In the baseline endoscopy procedure samples (blood, saliva, esophageal tissue, and ...

Phase N/A

The Effect of PPI Therapy on Weight Gut Microbiome and Expression of GPR41 and GPR43

Research Plan: Patients without gastrointestinal symptoms scheduled for a screening or surveillance colonoscopy (for colorectal cancer) at the UCH endoscopy lab will be screened for the study based on the inclusion and exclusion criteria. Eligible patients who consent to the study will have height, weight, and demographic information measured and ...

Phase N/A

Gastro-oesophageal Reflux in Oligosymptomatic Patients With Dental Erosion

Dental erosions, the chemical dissolution of enamel without bacterial involvement, are considered to be an established complication of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) by the Montreal global consensus statement. Given the high prevalence of dental erosions and the absence of any pH-impedance data or medical management guidelines for GERD-associated dental erosions, ...

Phase N/A

Impact of Gastroesophageal Reflux and Aspiration on Airway Inflammation and Microbiome in Children With Chronic Cough

Using an active cohort of children in whom Airway and gastrointestinal endoscopy will be performed, investigators will conduct a chart review to obtain relevant clinical data and the investigators will use an aliquot of airway sample obtained during the clinically indicated bronchoscopy for microbiome analysis. A case-control study design will ...

Phase N/A

Management of Reflux After Sleeve Using Stretta

Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is a widely prevalent medical disorder in the United States with a spectrum of treatment options ranging from dietary modification, to various pharmacologic treatments, to an array of available surgical and endoscopic procedures. There is a well-described correlation between obesity and symptoms of GERD. The morbidly ...

Phase N/A

Registry of Outcomes From AntiReflux Surgery

This is a prospective, multi center, observational database of patients that are having surgical laparoscopic antireflux procedure and/or hiatal hernia repair, including laparoscopic Nissen fundoplication and Magnetic Sphincter Augmentation with the LINX device. Patients meeting registry inclusion and exclusion will be followed for 5 years with standardized quality of life ...
