The Next Leap Forward

Blockbuster Proton Pump Inhibitors (PPIs) such as Losec and Nexium have not been able to provide all gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) patients with sufficient disease control. The time has now come for Potassium-Competitive Acid Blockers (P-CABs) to take the next leap forward in the treatment of acid-related diseases. Cinclus Pharma’s clinical stage drug candidate linaprazan glurate takes a new approach to provide improved management of GERD and for the treatment of Helicobacter Pylori (H.Pylori) infection.

Reflux diseases


Most people can relate to discomfort from heartburn and regurgitation, two of the most common symptoms caused by GERD. Symptoms often occur during or after eating and drinking, which affects both motivation and the ability to enjoy social activities such as picnics, dinners, events, or just a cup of coffee with friends. More severe stages of GERD with the presence of esophageal erosions (eGERD) or ulcerations (complicated GERD) can be very painful.
