Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Area under the plasma concentration-time curve (AUC) of esomeprazole after single oral doses of 5 mg, 10 mg and 20 mg esomeprazole in pediatric patients 1 to 11 years old inclusive with endoscopically-proven GERD. [ Time Frame: Day 1 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • The AUC(0-t), Cmax, tmax, and apparent volume of distribution during terminal phase (Vλz/F) of esomeprazole after single oral doses of 5 mg, 10 mg and 20 mg esomeprazole in pediatric patients 1 to 11 years-old inclusive with endoscopically-proven GERD. [ Time Frame: Day 1 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • AUC, AUC(0-t), Cmax, tmax, t1/2λz of the 5-hydroxy and sulphone metabolites of esomeprazole after a single oral dose of 5 mg, 10 mg, and 20 mg esomeprazole in pediatric patients 1 to 11 years-old inclusive with endoscopically-proven GERD. [ Time Frame: Day 1 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Safety and tolerability after a single oral dose of esomeprazole in pediatric patients 1 to 11 years old inclusive with endoscopically- proven GERD. [ Time Frame: Day 1, Day 15 ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Patients must be able to take solid or bland food (eg, applesauce).
  • Patients must weigh at least 8 kg and at the investigator's discretion be able to undergo extraction of an adequate volume of blood.
  • The patient's weight for height percentile should be less than the 90th percentile and/or the BMI must be between the 5th and 85th percentile for age.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Use of any other investigational compound or participation in another clinical trial within 28 days prior to the screening visit.
  • History or presence of gastrointestinal, hepatic or renal disease or other conditions that could interfere with absorption, distribution, metabolism or excretion of esomeprazole.
  • Unstable diabetes mellitus or history of seizure disorder.
  • Any acute or chronic illness or a medical history, which in the opinion of the investigator and/or sponsor, could compromise the patient's safety or successful participation in the study.
