Study to Evaluate the Performance and Safety of the Marial in Association With PPI Versus PPI Alone

2019-10-23 13:11:48 | BioPortfolio


The Research Question of the present study is the following: in a group of patients affected by GERD, 1-month treatment with PPI (omeprazole) and Marial® will significantly decrease the use of Gaviscon® as rescue medicine in comparison with patients treated with omeprazole alone.


This is an open-label, comparative, multicenter study with two parallel group of subjects. The clinical investigation will be performed in six clinical sites.

The study population will include subjects affected by GERD with diagnosis of Grade A esophagitis on Los Angeles Classification System grades reflux esophagitis, confirmed by gastroscopy (done within 1 month prior baseline).

Marial® is a class IIa medical device (Directive 93/42/EEC), already marketed in several EU countries. This compound has been produced combining hyaluronic acid, hydrolyzed keratin mucoproteins, glycoproteins such as fibronectin, meso glycans and integrins, and viscous agents. It evidenced to actively regenerate the damaged tissue by repairing and regenerative properties on mucous membranes and by muco-adhesive and film-forming characteristics that allow to prolong the contact time with the mucous membranes and consequently to improve the effectiveness.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

The S-isomer of omeprazole.

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.

A highly effective inhibitor of gastric acid secretion used in the therapy of STOMACH ULCERS and ZOLLINGER-ELLISON SYNDROME. The drug inhibits the H(+)-K(+)-ATPase (H(+)-K(+)-EXCHANGING ATPASE) in the proton pump of GASTRIC PARIETAL CELLS.
