Information provided by:
The aim of this study is to evaluate the complete remission rates, endoscopic relapses, study discontinuation rates, and quality of life parameters in patients with erosive GERD. The study duration consists of a treatment period up to 16 weeks according to the classical healing concept or the complete remission concept. During this period, the patients will receive pantoprazole (tablet) at one dose level once daily. The following observational phase lasts up to 6 months. The study will provide further data on efficacy, safety, and tolerability of pantoprazole.
