2014-07-23 21:08:59 | BioPortfolio

Summary

To compare the complete healing of erosive esophagitis(EE) after 3 weeks of treatment with Secretol 60 mg versus Nexium 40 mg daily.

Description

We hypothesize that Secretol 60 mg daily will demonstrate better efficacy than Nexium 40 mg daily in healing EE and controlling GERD-related symptoms after 3 weeks of treatment.In addition, Secretol 60 mg daily will have a faster effect on the aforementioned clinical parameters but a similar safety profile.
