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

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

Functional and Molecular Characterisation of Oesophageal Distal Epithelium: Correlations With Acid and Non Acid Reflux

This study aims to characterize the permeability as well as some protein involved in the cell junction in the oesophageal epithelium in patients with GORD symptoms. In addition these patients will be characterized for their reflux especially by pH-impedancemetry, Bilitec and oesophageal acid perfusion test. Correlations between the characteristics of ...

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

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) ...

Phase N/A

Esophageal Cancer Risk Registry

We will enroll patients with esophageal cancer, patients who are at risk for developing esophageal cancer, and patients who have a non-cancerous esophageal disorder. All patients will be asked to fill out a questionnaire about their general health and personal habits, and about their relatives' medical history; this will be ...

Phase N/A

Esophageal Monitoring Device for Assessing Mucosal Impedance

During routine esophagogastroduodenoscopy (EGD), consented study participants will have a series of three (3) custom mucosal impedance (MI) catheters with an axial array of sensors positioned along the mucosal wall to directly measure mucosal impedance at various intervals. Each catheter will be manually guided by the physician through the working ...

Phase N/A

Barrett's Esophagus Related Neoplasia (BERN) Project

B. BACKGROUND AND SIGNIFICANCE Burden of disease Barrett's esophagus (BE) is an acquired condition resulting from chronic gastroesophageal reflux disease and is a well recognized pre-malignant condition for the development of esophageal adenocarcinoma (EAC) (1, 2). BE is defined as the displacement of the squamocolumnar junction proximal to the gastroesophageal ...

Phase N/A

Mayo Clinic Foregut Surgery Report Card Questionnaire

Foregut surgery includes conditions of the esophagus, stomach and proximal small intestine. More specifically foregut surgery includes surgery for gastroesophageal reflux disease, hiatal hernias, and paraesophageal hernias. Patients undergoing foregut surgery report having varying degrees of symptoms of reflux, regurgitation, dysphagia, and pain following surgery. Providers also note varying degrees ...

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 ...
