es to the development of stomach ulcers), dyspepsia or GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease or "acid reflux") symptoms, as well as the simultaneous use of NSAIDs, anticoagulants and/or corticosteroids. The presence of several risk factors further increases the possibility of bleeding.

"We have an opportunity to work collaboratively to reduce the risk of gastrointestinal problems to improve public health," says James Scheiman, M.D., document co-chair and professor of medicine, Gastroenterology Division, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, Michigan. "There are strategies to minimize or reverse GI injury, especially as many of the medications become less costly as generics become available."

These recommendations are part of an ongoing dialogue between the three collaborating organizations and, according to the authors, will be updated as more definitive data are accrued. This document was developed by the American College of Cardiology Foundation Task Force on Expert Consensus Documents, which helps guide clinical practice in areas where rigorous evidence may not be available or the evidence to date is not widely accepted.
