Raleigh, NC 27612

Study Summary:

Even with medication, are you still struggling with heartburn?

Local doctors are looking for adults who are taking a PPI medication for GERD, but are still experiencing GERD symptoms such as frequent heartburn, to participate in a medical research study.

Most people are able to eliminate their heartburn (a burning discomfort or pain behind your breastbone) and other related symptoms by taking gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) medication. However, even with treatment, many people still experience heartburn caused by acid reflux. Now, researchers are evaluating an investigational medication for GERD symptoms in people who don’t experience enough relief with their current medications.

If you have been diagnosed with GERD and are on Proton Pump Inhibitor (PPI) medication, but still experience frequent heartburn, please consider this medical research study evaluating the safety and effectiveness of an investigational GERD medication taken in conjunction with your PPI medication.

Qualified Participants Must:

• Be 18-65 years of age
• Have been experiencing GERD symptoms for at least 3 months
• Have been taking a PPI medication for at least four weeks, but only have partial relief of your symptoms
• Experience heartburn symptoms at least three days a week
• Be willing to remain on your PPI medication during the study

Qualified Participants May Receive:

Qualified participants will receive all study-related medical care, PPI medication, and study medication at no cost. Reimbursement for time and travel may also be provided.

Clinical trials are medical research studies designed to test the safety and/or effectiveness of new investigational drugs, devices, or treatments in humans. These studies are conducted worldwide for a range of conditions and illnesses. Learn more about clinical research and participating in a study at About Clinical Trials.
