Acid reflux disease/peptic ulcers SmartPill® Study
Do you suffer from acid reflux disease or peptic ulcers, or are you taking a stomach acid blocker with good results?
Stomach acid disorders are often difficult to diagnose and treat. A new method for determining gastric acid output using a wireless capsule, the SmartPill®, has been developed to measure acid levels, temperature, and pressure throughout the stomach, small intestine and colon. It requires swallowing a small capsule.
The National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases at the National Institutes of Health Clinical Center in Bethesda, Maryland, is looking for patients to participate in a study that will measure stomach acid secretions using the SmartPill® to compare to other measurement methods. Participation will require 4 outpatient visits.
Compensation will be provided.
