A randomized, open-label study with antacid-control will be performed over 48 hours period by continuous pH impedance and bravo capsule monitoring. Asymptomatic obese patients will be separated into either groups according to alginate antacid group [Gaviscon Advance (GA)®, Reckitt Benckiser, UK] and non antacid alginate group [simple antacid]. Both groups will be studied for 48 hours using the ambulatory wireless capsule and pH impedance. Participants according to their group will take either alginate antcid [Gaviscon Advance (GA)®, Reckitt Benckiser, UK] or non alginate antacid [simple antacid] which has equivalent strength of antacid after taking late night standardised meals.
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.
All neonates, ages 0 to 4 months, presenting to LPCH pediatric ENT clinic for airway difficulties or stridor will be screened for inclusion. As is consistent with an acceptable standard of medical care, these children will undergo a flexible nasal endoscopic exam to make the diagnosis of laryngomalacia, as well as be weighed and a breastfeeding history taken. If laryngomalacia is present, the study staff with then administer the Infant Gastroesophageal Reflux Questionnaire (IGERQ) and an airway symptoms questionnaire (ASQ). Those babies with an IGERQ score of less than sixteen (no more than mild reflux) and an ASQ score greater than six will be eligible for randomization. The patient will then be randomly placed in the control group (placebo) or the intervention group (ranitidine 2mg/kg every 12 hours or famotidine 0.5 mg/kg daily). Patients will stay on medication for a minimum of 6 months, or until symptoms resolve. Patients will be seen in follow up at 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8 and 10 months. At which time I-GERQ, ASQ and weights will be taken. The primary outcome measure will be the time for the ASQ score to drop to normal on ranitidine or famotidine versus placebo. A secondary outcome will be weight gain in percentile. If the patient's I-GERQ score goes above 16 at any time in the study, the patient will be crossed over to the treatment arm and started on medical treatment.
Purpose: 1. Determine if oral quercetin increases the expression of claudin-4 in the lining of the esophagus of patients with a diagnosis of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD); and 2. Determine whether the increase in claudin-4 by oral quercetin is accompanied by improvement in the barrier function and acid resistance of the lining of the esophagus of patients with a diagnosis of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) If interested, participants will be consented and provided a questionnaire to complete as part of the study. Participants will undergo endoscopy for routine care and will have up to 8 esophageal biopsies (small tissue samples) taken for the research study. After endoscopy, participants will be contacted to begin a 6 week treatment period with study drug (Quercetin, taken twice daily). At the end of the 6 week period, participants will be scheduled to have blood drawn and to have a follow-up endoscopy with biopsies performed for the research study.
The purpose of this study is to assess the effectiveness of Zegerid 20mg capsules and powder and Losec 20mg capsules in healthy volunteers under fasting conditions.
A study to investigate the efficacy of ONO-8539 on acid-induced oesophageal hypersensitivity in healthy male adult volunteers.
