This study evaluates the efficacy of alginate-based reflux suppressant and magnesium-aluminium antacid gel for treatment of heartburn in pregnancy. Half of the participants will receive a...
A randomized controlled cross-over trial in full-term infants affected by symptoms suggestive of GER, evaluated through a validated questionnaire (Infant Gastroesophageal Reflux Questionna...
The aim of the study is to investigate the effects of a low-calorie alginate containing fruit flavored beverage on appetite and body weight development.
Laryngopharyngeal reflux (LPR), the backflow of gastric acid into the larynx and hypopharynx, is a contributing factor to hoarseness, throat clearing, throat pain, and globus sensation. Th...
This study is being conducted in China to provide evidence for inclusion in applications to competent authorities that the Compound Sodium Alginate Oral Suspension sachet is effective in m...
The relationship between gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) and idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is controversial. Current guidelines recommend that clinicians use regular antacid treatment, wh...
Insulin and an antacid (Mg(OH)2) were co-encapsulated inside calcium alginate microgels (diameter = 280 µm) using a vibrating nozzle injector. Confocal microscopy indicated that insulin was successfu...
The mechanisms of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF), a rare, devastating disease with a median survival of 3-5 years, are not fully understood. Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is a frequent c...
Nocturnal gastroesophageal reflux has been associated with poor sleep quality. Normal physiologic adaptations of the aerodigestive system to sleep prolong and intensify nocturnal reflux events. This o...
Chronic reflux patients with long-term PPI therapy frequently have persistent symptoms. A critical source of the persistent acid reflux is the acid pocket, which can be treated effectively by the n...
Retrograde bile flow. Reflux of bile can be from the duodenum to the stomach (DUODENOGASTRIC REFLUX); to the esophagus (GASTROESOPHAGEAL REFLUX); or to the PANCREAS.
Back flow of gastric contents to the LARYNGOPHARYNX where it comes in contact with tissues of the upper aerodigestive tract. Laryngopharyngeal reflux is an extraesophageal manifestation of GASTROESOPHAGEAL REFLUX.
An inorganic compound that occurs in nature as the mineral brucite. It acts as an antacid with cathartic effects.
A compound with many biomedical applications: as a gastric antacid, an antiperspirant, in dentifrices, as an emulsifier, as an adjuvant in bacterins and vaccines, in water purification, etc.
Chronic ESOPHAGITIS characterized by esophageal mucosal EOSINOPHILIA. It is diagnosed when an increase in EOSINOPHILS are present over the entire esophagus. The reflux symptoms fail to respond to PROTON PUMP INHIBITORS treatment, unlike in GASTROESOPHAGEAL REFLUX DISEASE. The symptoms are associated with IgE-mediated hypersensitivity to food or inhalant allergens.
