The purpose of this study is to examine the treatment profile of approximately 1,000 adult patients with gastroesophageal reflux who begin raberpazole sodium treatment for 4 months, and assess patients' adherence to the study drug.
This study is a multicenter, open-labeled, prospective, phase IV, observational study for patients visiting the gastroenterology department. The purpose of this study is to examine the treatment profile of approximately 1,000 adult patients with gastroesophageal reflux (GERD) who begin raberpazole sodium treatment for 4 months and assess patients' adherence to the study drug. The primary objective is to examine the treatment profile of gastroesophageal reflux in the secondary or tertiary clinical center. The secondary objective is to examine GERD patients' adherence to the study drug (rabeprazole sodium) during the treatment period. Of the patients who visit the study centers and complain about gastroesophageal reflux symptoms during the study period, those who are deemed to need rabeprazole sodium administration at the investigator's discretion will be considered for this study. The main outcome measures are the patterns of gastroesophageal reflux management (eg. treatment duration of initial therapy etc) and the compliance of proton pump inhibitor treatment.The compliance data (number of tablets taken) will be calculated at the clinical visit by counting the number of dispensed tablets that are remaining. Also, investigators will observe the gastroesophageal reflux symptom free rate at the end of initial therapy, gastrointestinal (GI) symptom relief and safety information at each visit. Study period is up to 4 months. During the study, no standardized treatment is stipulated, and patients may receive any treatment considered by their physicians. Rabeprazole sodium 10 mg - 20 mg tablet once daily for 4months.

Nocturnal gastroesophageal reflux has been associated with poor sleep quality. Normal physiologic adaptations of the aerodigestive system to sleep prolong and intensify nocturnal reflux events. This o...
Proton pump inhibitors are the most effective medical therapy for gastroesophageal reflux disease, but their onset of action may be slow.
In most cases gastroesophageal reflux disease proceeds without macroscopic erosions in the esophagus. We aimed to clarify if abnormalities detectable in magnifying endoscopy may offer additional diagn...
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...
To provide new concepts regarding the early pathologic changes of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) that are associated with damage to the lower esophageal sphincter (LES).
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.
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.
The R-isomer of lansoprazole that is used to treat severe GASTROESOPHAGEAL REFLUX DISEASE.
GASTROESOPHAGEAL REFLUX wherein the retrograde flow passes through the UPPER ESOPHAGEAL SPHINCTER
