BACKGROUND We are unaware of any solid theoretical or pathophysiological basis for selecting pH 4 or any other pH value to assess gastric acidity. AIM To examine the frequency of different gastric pH values in control and GERD subjects. METHODS Gastric pH was measured for 24 h in 26 control subjects, 26 gastro-oesophageal reflux disease subjects at baseline and the same 26 gastro-oesophageal reflux disease subjects during treatment with a proton-pump inhibitor. Histograms were constructed… CONTINUE READING
