Abstract

In patients with NERD and mild symptoms, both on-demand and daily treatment models of maintenance therapy showed a similar high efficacy, whereas intermittent therapy was significantly less effective. However, general satisfaction of each treatment options was high and non-significantly different between the groups. Due to a pilot character of this study further investigation based on a larger number of patients is necessary to confirm the clinical value of cheaper models of maintenance therapy which could be then recommended as more cost-effective.
