Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: 1
40mg administered orally
Drug: Esomeprazole
40mg oral
Other Name: Nexium

Experimental: 2
15 minute intravenous infusion
Drug: Esomeprazole
15 minute intravenous infusion
Other Name: Nexium

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. The maximal acid output (MAO) during pentagastrin stimulation after 10 days administration of 40 mg esomeprazole for both study periods. [ Time Frame: MAO will be assessed after 10 days of treatment (Day 11 or Day 20) ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Basal acid output (BAO) after 10 days administration of 40 mg esomeprazole for both study periods. (Day 11 or Day 20) [ Time Frame: BAO will be assessed after 10 days of treatment ]
  2. To compare MAO when switching (after Day 2 in the second study period versus after Day 10 in the first study period) from oral to intravenous dosing and from intravenous to oral dosing. [ Time Frame: Assessments at Day 2 and after Day 10 (Day 11 or Day 20) ]
  3. To evaluate the safety of intravenous esomeprazole in subjects with symptoms of GERD. [ Time Frame: Safety assessments throughout the study ]
