RESULTS

Found (39) 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

Eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE) is an inflammatory disease of the esophagus, characterized by eosinophilic infiltration and gastrointestinal symptoms. Swallowed, topically acting corticosteroids, such as fluticasone, appear to be effective in resolving acute clinical and pathological features of EoE. APT-1011 is an orally disintegrating tablet (ODT) formulation of fluticasone propionate. This study ...

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 ...

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. ...

A Prospective Randomized Trial Comparing Laparoscopic Nissen Against Anterior Partial Fundoplication in Treating Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease Among Chinese Patients

The incidence of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is rising among Asian population. A recent systematic review showed among Chinese population, the prevalence of GERD can be up to 5% (2). Currently, the standard treatment for GERD is acid suppression using proton pump inhibitors (PPI) which can achieve a symptomatic relief ...
