Gastric Reflux Clinical Trial
Study Off Efficacy and Rapidity of Action of a Product With Sodium Alginate, Calcium and Magnesium Salts, Hyaluronic Acid and Aloe Vera to Control Oesophageal-Gastric Acidity (pH), Symptoms of Gastric Reflux and Hyperacidity
A Randomised, Placebo-Controlled Clinical Trial off the Efficacy and Rapidity of Action of a Product Containing Sodium Alginate, Calcium and Magnesium Salts, Hyaluronic Acid and Aloe Vera to Control Oesophageal-Gastric pH and Reduce Symptoms of Gastric Reflux and Hyperacidity.
The investigators will include patients with gastroesophageal reflux disease and heartburn (more than 3 weekly episodes of heartburn for at least 4 consecutive weeks) not related to medication intake and don't use proton pump blockers or H2-receptor antagonists. This is a multicentre clinical trial with two-phase design: Phase I: A double-blind, randomised, placebo-controlled clinical trial to assess the efficacy and rapidity of action of the medical device to reduce clinical symptoms of gastric reflux and hyperacidity under normal conditions of use. This phase I will be performed in primary care clinics. Phase II: A non-comparative, non-controlled clinical trial to objectively assess, using continuous pH monitoring, the magnitude and rapidity to control gastric and oesophageal pH after taking the product. This phase II will be performed at the Department of Gastroenterology of Medic Center. The study will begin with the baseline visit (day 0) in which the inclusion and exclusion criteria will be confirmed, the signing of informed consent will be obtained, GERD-Q Questionnaire will be done and treatment will be prescribed, followed by a home recording where patients will record data on episodes of acidity and heartburn occuring during the follow-up week. A face-to-face visit will be at 7 days after to recollect information about total number of daytime and nighttime episodes of acidity/heartburn since the previous visit and repeat the GERD-Q Questionnaire. ;
