Assessment of Esophageal Epithelium Integrity With Mucosal Impedance
This trial has been completed.
|Conditions||gastroesophageal reflux disease (gerd), non-erosive reflux disease (nerd)|
|Treatment||standard of care esophagogastroduodenoscopy (egd) with mucosal impedance testing|
|Start date||July 2013|
|End date||December 2016|
|Trial size||40 participants|
|Trial identifier||NCT02318862, 130084|
Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is a common condition affecting more than 100 million adults in the U.S., and it significantly impacts patients' quality of life while imposing billions of dollars of direct and indirect costs each year upon our healthcare system. Current diagnostic tests for GERD are highly invasive and medically inadequate, and the goal of this project is to develop a novel, minimally invasive Mucosal Impedance technique for more accurate detection of GERD while reducing costs.
|Intervention model||parallel assignment|
