Do you often feel heartburn? Vomit greenish yellow fluid?
Patients with relentless esophagitis on endoscopy while on a PPI treatment will receive the maximum amount of therapy. This therapy consisting of 2 x 40 mg of PPI before morning and evening meals as well as a H2 blocker before going to bed will be continued for two months. If things haven't changed for the patient, they will be able to participate in this trial. We will inject a new drug, Lanreotide autogel, every 4 weeks. There will be three injections total. There will be another upper gastrointestinal endoscopy and impedancemetry performed at the end of the study.
