  Purpose

This study will investigate the safety and efficacy of an antacid/Lansoprazole combination product for the relief of heartburn after consuming a heartburn-inducing meal.


Condition Intervention Phase

Drug: Calcium carbonate/magnesium hydroxide/Lansoprazole 15 mg
Drug: Lansoprazole

Drug: Placebo
Phase 2

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Factorial Assignment
Masking: Double Blind (Subject, Caregiver, Investigator)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Phase II, Randomized, Double-blind, Placebo-controlled, Parallel Group Proof-of-Concept Trial to Assess Relief of Meal Induced Heartburn by a Combination of Lansoprazole 15 mg and Antacid Versus Lansoprazole 15 mg and Antacid (Calcium Carbonate and Magnesium Hydroxide) Alone

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Measure: Number of Participants With no Heartburn (Post Treatment) Following Consumption of Heartburn-inducing Meal [ Time Frame: 1 day ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Participant reported severity of heartburn using a Visual Analog Scale (VAS)directly on CRF every 15 minutes until no heartburn reported or up to 5 hours after 1st heartburn-inducing meal, whichever occurred first. At this point in time, a diary was provided to participants to record any changes in severity of heartburn for 28 hours post treatment.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Measure: Maximum Heartburn Intensity for Those Participants Who Experience Any Heartburn After the Heartburn-inducing Meals [ Time Frame: 1 day ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

    Heartburn severity was measured using a Visual Analog Scale, which was 100 milliimeters long.

    0 millimeters: None (no heartburn) 100 millimeters: Most severe


  • Measure: Maximum Heartburn Intensity for Those Participants Who Experience Any Nighttime Heartburn [ Time Frame: 1 day ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

    Heartburn severity was measured using a Visual Analog Scale, which was 100 milliimeters long.

    0 millimeters: None (no heartburn) 100 millimeters: Most severe


  • Measure: Number of Participants That Reported an Adverse Event for the Combination Product, PPI Alone, Antacid Alone and Placebo. [ Time Frame: 1 day ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
