The purpose of this study is to investigate the pharmacodynamic effect of AZD2516 in healthy male subjects.
A double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled, two-centre, phase IIa pharmacodynamic cross-over study to assess the effect of AZD2516 on the total number of reflux episodes in healthy male volunteers.
Allocation: Randomized, Endpoint Classification: Pharmacodynamics Study, Intervention Model: Crossover Assignment, Masking: Double Blind (Subject, Caregiver, Investigator), Primary Purpose: Basic Science

The primary purpose of this study is to assess the safety and tolerability of AZD2516 following administration of a single dose.
The purpose of this study is to determine if AZD2516 binds to mGluR5 receptors in the brain. This will then help to make accurate predictions of efficacy and dosing in the future developme...
The primary purpose of this study is to assess the safety and tolerability of AZD2516 following administration of a single dose to Japanese healthy subjects.
The purpose of the study is to compare frequency and content of reflux episodes in patients with gastroesophageal reflux disease.
Up to date there is no placebo-controlled trial to investigate the effect of prucalopride in patients with proven refractory GERD. Therefore, to evaluate the efficacy of prucalopride on th...
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...
LaryngoPharyngeal Reflux (LPR) is characterized by symptoms, signs, and/or tissue damage resulting from the aggression of the gastrointestinal contents in the upper airways. The Reflux Finding Score (...
Laryngopharyngeal Reflux (LPR) should be considered as part of extraesophageal reflux (EER). This reflux involves respiratory structures other than, or in addition to, the oesophagus. A new medical de...
Esomeprazole is commonly administered with food; however, clinical data to support this practice are lacking. We aimed to determine the effect of postprandial ingestion of esomeprazole on reflux sympt...
Reflux following an esophagectomy with gastric conduit reconstruction in the posterior mediastinum is a clinically significant problem. In this study, we investigated the frequency and impact of reflu...
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.
A condition with damage to the lining of the lower ESOPHAGUS resulting from chronic acid reflux (ESOPHAGITIS, REFLUX). Through the process of metaplasia, the squamous cells are replaced by a columnar epithelium with cells resembling those of the INTESTINE or the salmon-pink mucosa of the STOMACH. Barrett's columnar epithelium is a marker for severe reflux and precursor to ADENOCARCINOMA of the esophagus.
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.
Misunderstanding among individuals, frequently research subjects, of scientific methods such as randomization and placebo controls.
Within medicine, nutrition (the study of food and the effect of its components on the body) has many different roles. Appropriate nutrition can help prevent certain diseases, or treat others. In critically ill patients, artificial feeding by tubes need t...
Of all the types of Dementia, Alzheimer's disease is the most common, affecting around 465,000 people in the UK. Neurons in the brain die, becuase 'plaques' and 'tangles' (mis-folded proteins) form in the brain. People with Al...
