Subjects who are H. pylori negative based on a screening test. 6. Females should be either of non-childbearing potential or of childbearing potential. Females of childbearing potential must have negative pregnancy tests prior to randomization. Female subjects of childbearing potential must agree to use medically acceptable methods of contraception. 7. Subjects must be able to read, write, and understand the language of the symptom diary. KEY EXCLUSION CRITERIA: 1. Current or a history of esophageal motility disorders. 2. Current or a history of Barrett's esophagus.
