Don’t Let GERD Restrict You

GERD Clinical Trials May Be Able To Provide You With Options!

Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease, commonly known as GERD, happens when gastric content moves back up into the esophagus. This phenomenon is also known as regurgitation.
This condition is uncomfortable, and causes nausea, chest pain, difficulty in swallowing chronic cough and bad breath. If left untreated, GERD can lead to bleeding, ulceration and chronic scarring.

Revive Research Institute is conducting Clinical Trials to help you relieve these symptoms and GERD complications with novel, potential treatment options.

To be an able to join this study you need to:

  • Be 18 years or older
  • Have a confirmed diagnosis of GERD
  • Comply with the study procedures

Be a part of our clinical trial and let our physicians relieve your symptoms and ease out your life. The goal of the study is to observe the safety, efficacy and tolerability of the study medication that may be able to help with your symptoms of GERD.

*If you qualify and decide to participate in the GERD Clinical Trials, you will receive study-related care and treatment free of cost to both you and your insurance. Our team of Gastrologists, nurses and research staff will provide study-related care and will take care of your health throughout your participation in the study.

*All participants will be monetarily compensated for their time and travel through their participation in the research study.

Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease Clinical Research

About the GERD Study

Approximately 240 participants will be selected and enrolled in this study which will be conducted at around 60 study sites in about 8 different countries of the United States and Europe. Those people who will be considered eligible to take part in this study who are suffering from erosive gastritis due to GERD (Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease) and the treatment options available in the market are not effective.

This is a double-blind, double-dummy study in which two different drugs are being compared to check the level of effectiveness for this disease. This would mean that you will either receive the study drug or the drug with which this study drug is being compared (lansoprazole) or a placebo (drug look-alike with no active ingredient).

The GERD Clinical Trials will take a total of 60 days. You will be invited to the clinic for a total of 6 visits with additional 3 telephone calls for different assessments. Out of these 60 days, the first 7 days will be for screening when your eligibility will be confirmed by conducting various exams and health-related questions. Then two study treatment phases will occur, each of 4 weeks followed by a last (end of study) visit.

We will be comparing the study drug with another drug that is approved by the FDA and is readily available in the market. Evaluation will be based on the healing capacity and efficacy of both drugs.

*Participating in the GERD Clinical Trials does not cost you anything. Instead, it compensates for the time and travel of those eligible. No insurance is required to volunteer in any of our clinical trials.

Get Started: What to Expect?

Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD) is a digestive disorder that affects the lower esophageal sphincter, the ring of muscle between esophagus and stomach that prevents the acidic content of the stomach from backwashing into the esophagus.

Revive Research Institute is conducting clinical trials for GERD. There will be 240 participants in this study at about 60 study sites in about 8 countries including the United States and Europe.

If you think you qualify for this study, please fill the form above. After this, one of our research staff members will contact you and give you a call to determine whether you’re a suitable fit for our GERD Clinical Trials.

You will be requested to sign an Informed Consent Form (ICF) after your eligibility has been confirmed. Once it’s signed, several study-related questions will be asked, after which you would be asked to go through certain assessments. Study treatment is given after you have qualified as a participant.

About GERD

GERD Clinical Trials

What is Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD)?

When stomach acid runs down the tube (esophagus) that connects the mouth and stomach, it’s called Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD). This backwash (acid reflux) might irritate the esophageal lining. GERD is defined as mild acid reflux occurring at least twice a week or moderate to severe acid reflux occurring at least once a week. Acid reflux affects a significant proportion of individuals at some point in their lives.

Heartburn is the most common GERD symptom (acid indigestion). It usually feels like a burning sensation in your chest that starts below the breastbone and travels up your neck and throat. Acid reflux can cause burning, pressure, or pain which can last up to 2 hours. It typically worsens after a meal.

How To Manage Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD)?

Heartburn pain is often confused with the pain of heart disease or a heart attack, but the two are not the same. It affects more than 60 million Americans at least once a month, and more than 15 million individuals, including many pregnant women, experience it every day. As per recent studies, GERD in infants and children is more prevalent than doctors initially assumed. It has the potential to cause recurrent vomiting. Coughing and other respiratory issues are also possible side effects.

The majority of the people can manage their GERD symptoms with a combination of lifestyle adjustments and over-the-counter drugs. Some individuals with GERD, however, may require stronger drugs or surgery to relieve the symptoms.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Does everyone who has heartburn have GERD?

There are two types of heartburn (Physiologic and Pathologic). Tests of acid reflux using pH probes placed in the esophagus suggest that a limited amount of reflux occurs daily in the majority of individuals (physiologic reflux). Reflux is only considered a disease when excessive amounts of reflux occur (pathologic reflux) causing frequent symptoms or tissue damage.

How can we differentiate GERD pain from heart attack?

The main point of difference is that a heartburn is exacerbated by eating and lying down, but a heart attack can also occur after a meal.

How do I sign up for GERD Clinical Trials?

To sign up for our study contact us or simply fill the form above. During the telephonic conversation, our representative will ask you questions about your current health and medical history related to our study, and if you qualify you will be scheduled for an in-person screening session.

Is heartburn always GERD?

Heartburn and GERD are different but related. Heartburn is a symptom of acid reflux, and GERD is a condition characterized by severe acid reflux.
