TOPPITS - Trial of PPI in throat symptoms


Welcome to the TOPPITS Study (Trial of Proton Pump Inhibitors in Throat Symptoms) website

Please note that the trial is now closed to recruitment, so no further participants are sought.   Some participants already taking part will continue in follow-up until 28 February 2018, when the trial will close completely.  If you are looking at this website with a view to participating, apologies that you are a little too late, and many thanks for your interest in the trial.

Please feel free to take a look around the website to find out what TOPPITS is all about and where it is taking place. The tabs along the top will help direct you to the page you want.

Management of the study is undertaken by the Newcastle Clinical Trials Unit based within Newcastle University.


The TOPPITS study is sponsored by The Newcastle upon Tyne Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and is funded via a grant from the NIHR HTA (National Institute for Health Research: Health Technology Assessment)
