GERD Clinical Research

Learn about Accord's GERD Clinical Trials

Today, there are a number of GERD clinical studies being conducted around the United States. For many people, the effects of their condition can keep them from living the life they want to.

While there are a number of GERD treatments available, in some cases antacids and other heartburn medications are not enough to keep this medical condition in check.

Through new clinical trials on GERD, researchers are discovering new ways to combat this issue, as well as better methods of diagnosing GERD following the onset of initial signals (regurgitation of food or burning sensation in chest).

If you have exhausted all of the more traditional methods, and you’re still dealing with the symptoms of GERD, then it may be time to try something new.

Are you interested in learning more about GERD clinical research? You will find a form in the right hand corner of this page. Fill out the form and a member of our staff will then contact you to discuss upcoming research studies and your eligibility for enrollment or call us at (386) 760-7272 to speak with one of our experts about the GERD clinical studies in Port Orange.

The GERD clinical research taking place in Port Orange is testing new treatment methods, which are currently being developed by pharmaceutical and bio-technical companies. They’re designed specifically to test the safety and efficacy of treatments for humans.

Participating in a GERD Clinical Study

By volunteering for our fully supervised Florida gastroesophageal reflux disease clinical study, you can receive new investigational treatments. GERD clinical research may help us all to understand your condition better.

In many cases, patients who could benefit from investigational treatment miss out on gastroesophageal reflux disease clinical studies because their doctor isn’t aware of a study in the area. In addition, there are some cases where patients feel they are going through so much they don’t need to be treated like a ‘guinea pig,’ and nothing could be further from the truth.

The type of study being performed by Accord Clinical Research directly reflects your involvement. Sometimes, participating in a GERD clinical trial in Florida is as simple as agreeing to let our researchers have a copy of your test results.

However, most are more involved and would require some tests and a visit to our clinic. Participants are compensated for time and travel, and the study related care, including physical examinations, laboratory services and study medicines are all provided.

Signs & Symptoms of GERD

As we mentioned before, heartburn and GERD are often confused. The truth is that heartburn on it’s own isn’t a chronic condition. However, it can be a recurring symptom that is triggered by acid reflux and GERD.

In addition to chronic heartburn, there are several other symptoms that are associated with this digestive disorder. The most common symptoms of GERD include:

  • Difficulty or pain when swallowing
  • Burping or belching
  • Chronic sore throat
  • Chronically irritated throat
  • Experiencing a sudden excess of saliva (known as waterbrash)
  • Laryngitis
  • Inflamed gums
  • Experiencing peculiar hoarseness in the morning
  • Bad breath
  • Erosion of your teeth enamel
