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 Control Group (delayed stimulation) for six months followed by an additional open-label phase in which all subjects will receive electrical stimulation. Subjects continue on stimulation treatment in an extended open-label follow-up phase through 5 years post-stimulation.
Current treatment for gastroesophageal reflux disease(GERD)confirms an unmet need in patients, based on slow onset of action and an inability to provide 24-hour gastric acid suppression. Clinical data on lavoltidine demonstrates a rapid onset of action, high potency, and prolonged duration of effect after single dose. Since tolerance to the class of compounds to which lavoltidine belongs may be dose dependent, the current study is designed to determine if 40mg lavoltdine given for 7days develops tolerance.
Current treatment for gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) confirms an unmet need in patients, based on slow onset of action and an inability to provide 24-hour gastric-acid suppression. Clinical data on AH234844 demonstrates a rapid onset of action, high potency, and prolonged duration of effect. The present study endeavors, in part, to compare lavoltidine to two GERD drugs, NEXIUM and ranitidine.
