This prospective, single-blind, matched controlled study aims to evaluate the effect of proton pump inhibitors on biochemical markers of calcium and bone metabolism in an effort to establish additional biological plausibility for the apparent association between proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) and osteoporosis-related fractures.
Young males (age 18-45 years), who are either healthy volunteers, or who complain of daily or frequent heartburn but are otherwise healthy, will be recruited and enrolled in the study. Patients with heartburn will be assigned to the intervention group and will be assigned to take a PPI for three months. Healthy volunteers will be matched by age to patients in the intervention group and will act as the control group. 70 patients will be enrolled in total. Blood studies for all subjects will be taken at 0, 1 and 3 months to test for various biochemical markers of calcium and bone metabolism, which act as surrogate markers of calcium absorption and bone remodeling.
Levels of biochemical markers in the two groups will be compared using two-way analysis of variance (ANOVA). Changes in biochemical parameters within a group will be assessed using repeated measures ANOVA.
Allocation: Non-Randomized, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Open Label

A Study to Compare the Number of Patients With Gastro-Oesophageal Reflux Disease (GORD) Achieving Heartburn and Regurgitation Symptom Resolution After Treatment With Either Rabeprazole Sodium 20mg, Esomeprazole 20mg or Esomeprazole 40m
The primary objective of this study is to compare, the number of patients with heartburn and regurgitation symptom resolution after treatment with either rabeprazole 20 mg, esomeprazole 20...
The purpose of this study is to investigate the efficacy and safety of Rabeprazole (RAB) Extended-Release (ER) 50 mg versus Esomeprazole (ESO) 40 mg in subjects with erosive gastroesophage...
Patients infected with H. pylori are treated with rabeprazole 10 mg bid, AMPC 750 mg bid and CAM 200 mg bid or esomeprazole 20 mg bid, AMPC 750 mg bid and CAM 200 mg bid. Eradication rates...
The purpose of this study is to determine the safety and efficacy of Rabeprazole extended release (ER) 50 mg versus Esomeprazole 40 mg for healing and symptomatic relief among subjects wit...
This will be a randomized, open-label, single-center, 3-way crossover study in healthy subjects who are confirmed to be Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori)-negative. The study will consist of ...
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...
Parathyroid glands are the main regulator of body mineral metabolism through parathormone (PTH) actions on bone and kidney. Experimental evidence suggests that PTH may have non-classical target organs...
Endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) is a well-established minimally invasive treatment for early gastric cancer. To heal ESD-induced ulcers, we commonly prescribe proton pump inhibitors (PPIs). Von...
Neuronal Calcium Sensor-1 (NCS-1) is a highly conserved calcium binding protein which contributes to the maintenance of intracellular calcium homeostasis and regulation of calcium-dependent signaling ...
Preeclampsia represents a major complication of pregnancy, associated with greater maternal and fetal complications. We compared the effects of esomeprazole (a proton pump inhibitor) and magnesium sul...
Disorders in the processing of calcium in the body: its absorption, transport, storage, and utilization.
Hereditary disorders of pyruvate metabolism. They are difficult to diagnose and describe because pyruvate is a key intermediate in glycolysis, gluconeogenesis, and the tricarboxylic acid cycle. Some inherited metabolic disorders may alter pyruvate metabolism indirectly. Disorders in pyruvate metabolism appear to lead to deficiencies in neurotransmitter synthesis and, consequently, to nervous system disorders.
An inorganic pyrophosphate which affects calcium metabolism in mammals. Abnormalities in its metabolism occur in some human diseases, notably HYPOPHOSPHATASIA and pseudogout (CHONDROCALCINOSIS).
Disorders affecting amino acid metabolism. The majority of these disorders are inherited and present in the neonatal period with metabolic disturbances (e.g., ACIDOSIS) and neurologic manifestations. They are present at birth, although they may not become symptomatic until later in life.
The S-isomer of omeprazole.
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...
Osteoporosis is a disease in which the bones become extremely porous, are subject to fracture, and heal slowly, occurring especially in women following menopause and often leading to curvature of the spine from vertebral collapse. Follow and track&n...
Biological therapy involves the use of living organisms, substances derived from living organisms, or laboratory-produced versions of such substances to treat disease. Some biological therapies for cancer use vaccines or bacteria to stimulate the body&rs...
