Graphic Abstract: Association Between Psychosocial Disorders and Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease 

Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is a common upper gastrointestinal tract disorder. The main cause of GERD is a reflux of stomach and duodenum contents into the esophagus, which results in – among others – acid reflux and heartburn. It is estimated that over 1 billion people worldwide suffer from GERD.

The FunDysGWAS ESNM Project 

The aim of this project is to create an European based database to investigate the role of different genetic factors that might be linked to functional dyspepsia (FD) symptoms. At present the project is looking for new centers in Europe that would like to help and are eager to recruit 50 patients or more diagnosed with functional dyspepsia as described by the Rome IV criteria and if possible 50 healthy controls during the next year.
