  • SOARD (Study of Acid-Related Disorders, Perspectives From Physicians and Patients), a Phathom Pharmaceuticals–sponsored study that surveyed 251 physicians (102 gastroenterologists, 149 primary care physicians) and 77 patients with H. pylori infection with dyspepsia between November 2020 and April 2021. The survey captured physician and patient perspectives on symptoms, burden of disease, treatment goals, adherence, and satisfaction. A medical chart review was conducted for all patients. The differences in physician perception and patient experience of the disease have been analyzed, as well as patient demographics, clinical characteristics, and disease and treatment management.
