Trans GERD: Efficacy and Tolerability of Esomeprazol in Patients Under Ordinary Medical Care Conditions
Under daily routine conditions and without any intervention by the sponsor regarding the selection of subjects, diagnostic procedures, therapeutic decisions (medicinal and non- medicinal therapy, dose, duration, etc.), routine assessments, the participating physicians (i.e. general practitioners and internists) are asked to document relevant data related to esomeprazole therapy in patients with gastrointestinal disorders. Patients with acid associated gastrointestinal symptoms can be included.

- evaluation of a diagnosis tool [ Time Frame: evaluation of the predictive value of a two items questionnaire on acid associated symptoms ]
