Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is one of the most common disorders of the gastrointestinal tract, the key symptoms being heartburn, regurgitation and chest pain. Pim Weijenborg investigates why there is often a discrepancy between the severity of esophageal exposure to gastric content and the severity of symptoms. He focuses specifically on reflux perception and the role played by the esophageal mucosal barrier function.
