The Effect of High PCO2 Solution on Esophageal Acid Sensation

2014-07-23 21:09:00 | BioPortfolio

Summary

To determine the effect of intraesophageal high PCO2 solution as compared to acidic and saline solutions on subjects' heartburn sensation using stiumlus-response functions.

Description

Presently, the exact mechanism of GERD and the role of CO2 in pathogenesis of heartburn symptoms is unclear. CO2 conversion to protons may play a key role in the mechanism for heartburn sensation. This is a prospective, randomized study that will help further explore the mechanism for heartburn sensation in GERD patients and can be a prelude for further studies examining the role of new class antireflux agents such as carbonic anhydrase inhibitors in the treatment of patients with heartburn.

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 R-isomer of lansoprazole that is used to treat severe GASTROESOPHAGEAL REFLUX DISEASE.

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 substituted benzamide used for its prokinetic properties. It is used in the management of gastroesophageal reflux disease, functional dyspepsia, and other disorders associated with impaired gastrointestinal motility. (Martindale The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 31st ed)
