An Open Label, Prospective, Single Centre Study to Evaluate the Efficacy and Safety of Fixed Dose Combination of Rabeprazole (Enteric-Coated, EC) 20 mg + Domperidone (Sustained Release, SR) 30 mg Capsule in Treatment of Patients with Laryngopharyngeal Reflux Disease.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

To evaluate the efficacy, safety and tolerability of fixed dose combination of Rabeprazole (enteric-coated, EC) 20 mg + Domperidone (sustained release, SR) 30 mg for treatment of laryngopharyngeal reflux disease (LPRD).

DESIGN:

A prospective, single centre, open-label, non-comparative, observational study

SETTING:

The study was conducted at an otolaryngology clinic in India between May 2012 and November 2012.

PATIENTS:

Patients (>18 yrs) with suspicious LPR-related symptoms, reflux symptom index (RSI) score >13 and reflux finding score (RFS) >7, willing to undergo rigid laryngoscopy and requiring fixed dose combination of Rabeprazole (enteric-coated, EC) 20 mg + Domperidone (sustained release, SR) 30 mg capsule treatment according to the investigator's discretion were eligible for enrolment in the study.

METHODS:

Fixed dose combination of Rabeprazole (enteric-coated, EC) 20 mg + Domperidone (sustained release, SR) 30 mg capsule treatment was given for a total duration of 90 days and efficacy was assessed by the change in RFS and RSI score at Day 90. The safety and tolerability of the study drug was assessed by monitoring adverse events, vital signs and physical examination.

RESULTS:

Overall, 50 patients were enrolled and completed the study. After 12 weeks of fixed dose combination of Rabeprazole (enteric-coated, EC) 20 mg + Domperidone (sustained release, SR) 30 mg capsule treatment there was a significant change in mean RSI scores [mean (SD) RSI: 19.18 (3.24) at baseline to 2.52 (2.31) at end of study; (p<0.0001)] as well as mean RFS score [mean (SD) RFS: 12.62 (1.48) at baseline to 0.30 (0.51) at end of study; (p<0.0001)]. No adverse event was reported by any patient during the study period.

CONCLUSION:

Twelve weeks of treatment with combination of fixed dose combination of Rabeprazole (enteric-coated, EC) 20 mg + Domperidone (sustained release, SR) 30 mg capsule significantly improved reflux symptoms in patients with LPR. The combination was found to be safe and well tolerated.
