Salivary Pepsin as an Intrinsic Marker for Diagnosis of Sub-types of Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease and Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease-related Disorders. J Neurogastroenterol Motil. 2019 Oct 25;: Authors: Wang YJ, Lang XQ, Wu D, He YQ, Lan CH, Xiao X, Wang B, Zou DW, Wu JM, Zhao YB, Dettmar PW, Chen DF, Yang M Abstract Background/Aims: To determine the value of salivary pepsin in discriminating sub-types of gastroesophageal refluxdisease (GERD) and GERD-related disorders. Methods: Overall, 322 patients with different sub-types of GERD and 45 healthy controls (HC) werestudied. All patients took Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease Questionnaire (GerdQ) andunderwent endoscopy and 24-hour esophageal pH monitoring and manometry. Salivary pepsinconcentration (SPC) was detected by using colloidal gold double-antibody immunologicalsandwich assay. Oral esomeprazole treatment was administrated in the patients with non-erosivereflux disease (NERD) and extra-esophageal symptoms (EES). Results: Compared to HC, patients with erosive esophagitis, NERD, EES, EES plus typical GERDsymptoms, or Barrett's esophagus had a higher prevalence of saliva and SPC (all P

Conclusion GERD patients with combined daytime and nighttime reflux of have more troublesome symptoms than those with daytime reflux. GERD patients with different timings of reflux symptoms have different clinical characteristics in terms of body mass index and duration of education, but not in terms of esophageal inflammation, quality of sleep, and psychosocial status.
