Occasional heartburn is caused by a disease called NERD.
What is the purpose of this clinical research study?
NERD is a disease that causes occasional heartburn (called “episodic heartburn”), a burning sensation in your chest and throat without erosions or wearing away of the inner lining of the esophagus. The standard treatment for NERD is currently the use of a class of medications called proton pump inhibitors (PPI).
Qualified participants will receive at no cost study-related:
- Physical Exams
- Laboratory Tests
- Study Medication
Do you have heartburn?
Non-erosive reflux disease (NERD) is a type of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) in which the esophagus is unharmed by stomach acid. In more common cases of GERD, stomach acid leaks into the esophagus, causing erosion and ulcers.
