The Role of HIF-2a in the Pathogenesis of Reflux Esophagitis
The Role of HIF-2a in the Pathogenesis of Reflux Esophagitis
The purpose of this study is to determine the role of hypoxia inducible factor (HIF)-2a on the production of inflammatory cytokines that lead to reflux esophagitis.
Reflux esophagitis is thought to be caused by gastric acid that refluxes into the esophagus, causing injury. Newer data suggest that reflux of gastric juice into the esophagus stimulates HIF-2a, which increases production of inflammatory cytokines. These cytokines are thought to lead to reflux esophagitis. The investigators plan to study the relationship of HIF-2a to inflammatory cytokines in patients with known gastroesophageal reflux disease and reflux esophagitis.
Interventional
Not Applicable
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Basic Science
  • Esophagitis
  • Reflux Esophagitis
  • Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease
Other: Cessation of Acid Suppressing Medications
Acid-suppressing medications are stopped for all participants the day after baseline assessment. Subsequent evaluations performed while participant is not on acid-suppressing medications.
Experimental: Reflux Patients
Patients with reflux and a prior history of reflux esophagitis are being enrolled. The intervention is cessation of acid-suppressing medications.
Intervention: Other: Cessation of Acid Suppressing Medications
