abstract

  • Symptoms are an important outcome for measurement in clinical trials into gastro-oesophageal reflux disease, but the optimal approach to symptom assessment has not been formally evaluated. The authors conducted a systematic review to assess how reflux symptoms have been evaluated and how well these correlate with oesophagitis healing and relapse.
