From: Gaviscon® vs. omeprazole in symptomatic treatment of moderate gastroesophageal reflux. a direct comparative randomised trial

  Gaviscon® N = 120 Omeprazole N = 121 p- value
Mean time to the onset of a 24-h heartburn-free period, days: mean (SD) 2.0 (2.2) 2.0 (2.3) 0.93
Median, days 1.2 1.2  
Number of patients free of heartburn for 24 h: N (%) 105 (89.7) 109 (90.1) 0.93
  1. The proportion of patients achieving a first 24-h heartburn-free period was 105/120 (89.7%) in the Gaviscon® group, vs. 109/121 (90.1%) in the omeprazole group (p = 0.93).
