Topical Bethanechol for Improvement of Esophageal Dysmotility

2014-08-27 03:17:19 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purpose of this research project is to determine the effect of a drug called bethanechol on swallowing function in patients with Ineffective Esophageal Motility (IEM). This drug is FDA approved for use in treating other conditions, but not for the treatment of IEM. There is currently no approved therapy for the treatment of IEM. This information is important for the possible development of new ways of treating patients with IEM and for the effectiveness of topically applied Bethanechol on patients with IEM.

Treatment of Dysphagia and Ineffective Esophageal Motility With Prucalopride: A Pilot Study

This study will test prucalopride (a prokinetic drug currently approved by Health Canada for treatment of constipation) as a treatment for Ineffective Esophageal Motility (IEM). Adult pati...

Changes in Esophageal Motility and Swallowing Symptoms After Thyroid Surgery

The pronounced effect of goiter on the esophagus needs further exploration, as the mechanisms by which goiter leads to swallowing difficulties are unknown. By investigating esophageal moti...

Reversibility of Dysmotility After Gastric Banding

In the current study we plan to evaluate the effects of the conversion from gastric banding to gastric bypass on esophageal function using combined monitoring. The primary aim of the curre...

Lower Esophageal Sphincter (LES) Stimulation in Patients With Ineffective Esophageal Motility

The aim of this study is to evaluate gastroesophageal reflux disease - health related quality of life (GERD-HRQL) after electrical stimulation of the lower esophageal sphincter (LES) in pa...

Esophageal Motility Disease Screening in Patient With Suspicion or Diagnosis of IBD

Aims: Prospective evaluation of patients with a suspicion or diagnosis of Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) to evaluate osophageal motility before and during therapy Material and methods: ...

Influence of prucalopride on esophageal secondary peristalsis in reflux patients with ineffective motility.

Ineffective esophageal motility (IEM) is associated with gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). Secondary peristalsis contributes to esophageal clearance. Prucalopride promotes secondary peristalsis ...

Muscle layer thickness affects the peroral endoscopic myotomy procedure complexity.

Esophageal motility disorders can cause severe dysphagia, regurgitation, and/or noncardiac chest pain due to a lack of coordinated esophageal motility function. However, the clinical significance of e...

Early Postoperative Complications of Thoracic Esophageal Diverticula: A Review of 10 Cases from "Saint Mary" Hospital, Bucharest, Romania.

Thoracic esophageal diverticulum is a rare pathology frequently associated with esophageal motility disorders. Surgery is the only option in patients with severe symptoms.

Study on effects of electrical stimulation on rabbit esophageal body motility in vivo.

Electric stimulation (ES) could induce contraction of intestinal smooth muscle. The aim of this study was to analyze the effects of ES on esophageal motility and the underlying mechanism in vivo. Twen...

Role of TRPV1 receptor in inflammation and impairment of esophageal mucosal integrity in a murine model of nonerosive reflux disease.

Microscopic inflammation and impairment of the esophageal epithelial barrier are considered relevant for perception of symptoms in patients with nonerosive reflux disease (NERD). In these patients, th...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A mild form of LIMITED SCLERODERMA, a multi-system disorder. Its features include symptoms of CALCINOSIS; RAYNAUD DISEASE; ESOPHAGEAL MOTILITY DISORDERS; sclerodactyly, and TELANGIECTASIS. When the defect in esophageal function is not prominent, it is known as CRST syndrome.

Disorders affecting the motor function of the UPPER ESOPHAGEAL SPHINCTER; LOWER ESOPHAGEAL SPHINCTER; the ESOPHAGUS body, or a combination of these parts. The failure of the sphincters to maintain a tonic pressure may result in gastric reflux of food and acid into the esophagus (GASTROESOPHAGEAL REFLUX). Other disorders include hypermotility (spastic disorders) and markedly increased amplitude in contraction (nutcracker esophagus).

A motility disorder of the ESOPHAGUS in which the LOWER ESOPHAGEAL SPHINCTER (near the CARDIA) fails to relax resulting in functional obstruction of the esophagus, and DYSPHAGIA. Achalasia is characterized by a grossly contorted and dilated esophagus (megaesophagus).

Quaternary ammonium compounds that include BETHANECHOL.

A slowly hydrolyzed muscarinic agonist with no nicotinic effects. Bethanechol is generally used to increase smooth muscle tone, as in the GI tract following abdominal surgery or in urinary retention in the absence of obstruction. It may cause hypotension, cardiac rate changes, and bronchial spasms.
