Heartburn Treatment Clinical Study

Heartburn is a common condition that develops when the contents of your stomach flow back into the esophagus and cause troublesome pain and discomfort. Unfortunately, about 40% of heartburn sufferers report continued symptoms after treatment with currently available prescription and over-the-counter medications. If you're ready to move on from heartburn, this study is for you.

About the Study

The purpose of this study is to determine the safety and efficacy of a research medication in the treatment of heartburn.  This medication is approved in several countries but not FDA approved for use in the United States.  Each participant will undergo an endoscopic exam (EDG) and  will participate in two phases of the study. All participants will receive 4 weeks of active treatment or placebo followed by 20 weeks of active treatment during the long term phase of the study.

What does this study involve for patients?

All participants will read and sign an Inform Consent Form (ICF) and keep an electronic diary to record episodes of heartburn.  If you qualify for the study, you will undergo a screening EDG.  If there is no injury to your esophagus (Erosions) or other abnormalities, you will be provided with study medication and continue keeping a diary. There are 6 visits to our office and four phone calls. The study medication, laboratory and diagnostic testing and physical exams are at no charge. Compensation is up to $675.
