At a GERD Multidisciplinary Forum during the conference, Qiuping Wang (pictured right, above), a director from the otolaryngology department of Nanjing General Hospital, also discussed the importance of pepsin for reflux screening.

Stephanie Yang, at Maxhealth Medical Group, said: “During the conference, several professors from across the country visited the Maxhealth booth and inquired about usage and registration process of Peptest. There is high expectation for the use of Peptest in China.”
