Further study details as provided by AstraZeneca:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Diagnostic test characteristics and the positive and negative predictive value of a 2-week Nexium-based PPI test using symptom analysis of 24-hour esophageal pH monitoring as gold standard.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • To assess the optimal duration of a Nexium-based PPI test, and the predictive value of different symptoms for presence of reflux-related symptoms.
  • Obtain information on patient satisfaction, the course of reflux symptoms, the consumption of acid suppressing drugs, the disease-related quality of life at a follow up periods of 3 months in patients with a positive and negative PPI test.

Estimated Enrollment: 100
