The purpose of this study is to clarify the physiological function of sodium glutamate by measuring its effect on upper GI motility (esophageal manometry, impedance and gastric emptying).
Amino acids such as monosodium glutamate are known to stimulate both endocrine and exocrine secretion. In addition, there is a report that oral intake of glutamate evokes the activation of vagal afferent nerves in the rat. Thus, such amino acids are thought to be influential in the process of digestion and absorption.
Transient lower esophageal sphincter relaxation (TLESR) is the major mechanism of gastroesophageal reflux. TLESR is triggered by gastric distention, leading to activation of a reflex pathway involving gastric vagal afferents, brainstem centers, and inhibitory efferents to the lower esophageal sphincter.
To investigate the effect of monosodium glutamate on gastrointestinal motility, we planned a single-blind randomized study. The participants will take either monosodium glutamate or sodium chloride before the first examination of upper GI motility and the other agent before the second examination. The order of intake will be randomized by the envelope method.

Children with a radionuclide gastric emptying test with abnormal results will undergo a second test with the addition of a weight adjusted dose of monosodium glutamate. The purpose of the ...
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 a...
We will estimate the responses of lansoprazole and ecabet sodium combination therapy and compare with lansoprazole and placebo therapy in patients who need additional therapy after standar...
There are receptors to free glutamate in the oral cavity and stomach that may mediate effects of this amino acid on gastrointestinal physiology. The investigators hypothesize that a chroni...
Cardiorespiratory and gastroesophageal reflux events often coexist in infants in Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) thus leading to drugs over-prescription and delayed discharge. Through...
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.
Sodium or sodium compounds used in foods or as a food. The most frequently used compounds are sodium chloride or sodium glutamate.
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.
A subclass of symporters that specifically transport SODIUM CHLORIDE and POTASSIUM CHLORIDE across cellular membranes in a tightly coupled process.
Agents that inhibit SODIUM CHLORIDE SYMPORTERS. They act as DIURETICS. Excess use is associated with HYPOKALEMIA.
Within medicine, nutrition (the study of food and the effect of its components on the body) has many different roles. Appropriate nutrition can help prevent certain diseases, or treat others. In critically ill patients, artificial feeding by tubes need t...
Endocrine disorders are grouped into two categories: hormone imbalance - when a gland produces too much or too little of an endocrine hormone development of lesions (such as nodules or tumors) in the endocrine system, which may or may not affect...
Pancreatitis Acute pancreatitis is inflammation of the pancreas caused by the release of activated pancreatic enzymes. Common triggers are biliary tract disease and chronic heavy alcohol intake. Diagnosis is based on clinical presentation...
