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.

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.

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.
