Primary Outcome Measures:
  • To compare rates of remission (non re-appearance of erosive esomeprazole) when treated with esomeprazole or lansoprazole; in patients in with erosive esomeprazole (EE) that is in remission (i.e. previously healed EE). [ Time Frame: Symptoms will be assessed by the investigator at each visit and the patients will undergo an endoscopy at Months 3 and 6 ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • To compare endoscopic remission rates through 6 months of treatment with E20 and L15, after initial healing of EE. [ Time Frame: Symptoms will be assessed by the investigator at each visit and the patients will undergo an endoscopy at Months 3 and 6 ]
  • The assessment of symptoms in the two treatment groups after 1, 3 and 6 months. [ Time Frame: patients will undergo an endoscopy at Months 3 and 6 ]
  • To assess the safety and tolerability of up to 6 months of treatment with E20 and L15 after initial healing of EE. [ Time Frame: Symptoms will be assessed by the investigator at each visit and the patients will undergo an endoscopy at Months 3 and 6 ]
