EROSIVE ESOPHAGITIS STUDY

Do you suffer from GERD?

The purpose of this study is to determine the healing and maintenance of healing comparing an FDA-approved medication (Prevacid) to a research medication. Participants will undergo an endoscopic exam (EGD) to determine the presence of EE and a repeat EGD to evaluate healing.

Who qualifies to participate?

To qualify to participate, you must be:

  • 18 years of age or older
  • Willing to undergo an endoscopic exam
  • Basically healthy with no active ulcers or GI bleed in prior 30 days
  • Not planning a hospitalization or surgical procedure

What does the study involve?

If the screening EGD is positive for EE, the participant will receive study medication. Repeat EGDs will be performed to evaluate healing. The total number of visits and EGDs will be based upon healing. The study can be up to 7 visits and compensation is up to $1200. The study medicaiton, laboratory and diagnostic testing, and physical exams are at no charge.
