Eosinophilic esophagitis and asthma are frequently found as comorbid conditions in children and adults along with other manifestations of atopic diathesis. These two conditions have similar T helper 2 responses-driven pathophysiology and share common management strategies such as using systemic corticosteroids and targeted anti-cytokine biologic therapies. Review of the literature finds that asthma is often a comorbid condition in eosinophilic esophagitis in both children and adults; however, the EoE-asthma relationship remains poorly characterized mechanistically and clinically...

Objectives: Epidemiologic studies on eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE) are scarce and patient responders to proton pump inhibitor (PPI) therapy have usually been excluded. We aimed to evaluate population-based incidence rates, prevalence and trends in adult EoE over the past decade, including responders to PPI therapy. Methods: We conducted an analysis of a prospectively established case registry in the health area of Cáceres, located in midwestern Spain. From the first EoE case diagnosed in 2007, endoscopy and pathology reports up to December 2016 were manually reviewed...

Eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE) is a disorder that has been identified recently, thus knowledge about it, its pathogenesis, and potential etiologies has spread in an era where the medical community and the public are receiving the information and discussing it as it appears in the medical literature. Because physiology, pathology, and pathophysiology are difficult to explain in layman terms, the author has used photographs taken in remote areas of the Amazon to create visual similes within a narrative that brings the scientific and medical concepts of the knowledge on EoE to a level that allows both medical and non-medical persons to grasp and discuss their significance...

Eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE) is increasingly recognized allergic disease associated with dysphagia and esophageal fibrosis. We aimed to determine expression patterns of specific eosinophil integrins that promote eosinophilic infiltration of the esophageal epithelium, and to determine how key EoE-related cytokines influence eosinophil activation and survival. Esophageal and peripheral eosinophils were isolated from 20 adult subjects with EoE for immunophenotyping and integrin profiling using multicolor flow cytometry and immunohistochemistry...

Esophagogastroduodenoscopy (EGD) is a widely used procedure, posing significant financial burden on both healthcare systems and patients. Moreover, EGD is time consuming, sometimes difficult to tolerate, and suffers from an imperfect diagnostic yield as the limited number of collected biopsies does not represent the whole organ. In this paper, we report on technological and clinical feasibility of a swallowable tethered endomicroscopy capsule, which is administered without sedation, to image large regions of esophageal and gastric mucosa at the cellular level...

BACKGROUND: Clinical trials of baked milk (BM) introduction have demonstrated accelerated resolution of milk allergy. OBJECTIVE: Long-term data regarding real world introduction of BM is lacking. We sought to characterize our experience of BM introduction. METHODS: We performed a retrospective chart review of consecutive BM oral food challenges performed in our clinic from 2009 - 2014, with a minimum follow-up of 24 months. RESULTS: Of the 206 patients challenged, 99 (48%) passed and 187 were sent home with detailed instructions to incorporate BM into their diets...

Background and study aims : Characteristic endoscopic findings, such as linear furrows, rings, and whitish exudates, indicate the presence of esophageal eosinophilia (EE), though no specific findings are known to distinguish eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE) from proton pump inhibitor-responsive esophageal eosinophilia (PPI-REE). Here, we present a novel endoscopic finding in some EE patients possessing a linear longitudinal arrangement of whitish nodules with the appearance of the back of an Ankylosaurus dinosaur, termed Ankylosaurus back sign (ABS), and evaluations of its significance in affected patients...

OBJECTIVES: Eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE) guidelines call for similar practices in adults and children with EoE. We compared the diagnostic and management practices of gastroenterologists treating adult and pediatric patients suspected of having, or diagnosed with, EoE. METHODS: A 19 question multiple choice questionnaire was given to gastroenterologists treating either adults or children. Questions explored four areas of interest: Physician demographics, diagnosis and tissue sampling practices, management, and the need for societal publications on EoE...

BACKGROUND: The pathogenesis of eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE) is currently unknown, but evidence suggests that allergic sensitization to food and airborne allergens may play a key role. This retrospective study examines the rate of sensitization to both food and airborne allergens in EoE patients, and compares their sensitivity patterns to control groups. METHODS: We identified 103 patients with a diagnosis of EoE via esophageal eosinophilia (≥15 eosinophils/high-power field [hpf]), who had undergone comprehensive food and/or airborne allergen testing through either skin or in vitro methods...

BACKGROUND: Few studies have examined combined or alternating treatment algorithms in eosinophilic esophagitis. AIMS: We conducted a retrospective cohort study to ascertain the efficacy and adherence to a combined and alternating treatment approach with topical corticosteroids and 2-food elimination diet for pediatric EoE. METHODS: Patients were prescribed a 2-food elimination diet (milk and soy) and topical corticosteroid (fluticasone or oral viscous budesonide) for 3 months, after which the steroid was discontinued and 2-food elimination diet continued for 3 months...

Eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE) is an immune/antigen-mediated, progressive fibrostenotic disease characterized by symptoms of esophageal dysfunction and abnormal eosinophilic infiltration in the esophagus. Despite current treatment modalities of dietary antigen elimination or topical corticosteroids, a subset of patients do not have clinical or histologic response. Even with resolution of superficial epithelial eosinophilia, patients may still have progressive subepithelial fibrosis, which may lead to esophageal strictures over time...

Emily Ko, Mirna Chehade
Eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE) is an immune-mediated, chronic esophageal disease characterized by esophageal symptoms and esophageal eosinophilia. It is triggered by foods and possibly by environmental allergens. Currently, there are no FDA-approved therapies for EoE. Commonly used treatments include dietary restrictions and topical corticosteroids. Many of these therapies are suboptimal in their efficacy, have side effects, or diminish patients' quality of life. Biologic therapies for EoE have therefore been sought as an alternative...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE) has transformed over the past two decades from a little-known entity to a significant cause of morbidity in the adult and pediatric population. We reviewed the most recent advancements in the diagnosis, therapy, and long-term monitoring of EoE. RECENT FINDINGS: Based on clinical, endoscopic, histologic, immunologic, and genetic similarities, there is growing consensus to move away from distinguishing proton pump inhibitor responsive esophageal eosinophilia as an entity distinct from EoE...

Eosinophilic esophagitis is an atopic disease defined clinically by esophageal symptoms in combination with a dense esophageal eosinophilia. EoE is triggered and maintained by exposure to certain foods and it is known that dietary modification controls symptoms and achieves disease remission. Recently, aeroallergens have been implicated in the pathogenesis of EoE. To examine the role of aeroallergens in EoE, we reviewed the published literature. Sensitization and production of IgE antibodies to foods and aeroallergens in subjects with EoE has been demonstrated...

Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is a condition which develops when the reflux of stomach contents causes troublesome symptoms and/or complications. Heartburn and regurgitation are the typical symptoms of GERD. The treatment of GERD encompasses lifestyle modifications, pharmacological, endoscopic, and surgical therapy. The majority of the patients respond to 4-8 weeks of proton-pump inhibitors therapy, but 20-42% will demonstrate partial or complete lack of response to treatment. While these patients have been considered as having refractory heartburn, a subset of them does not have GERD or have not been adequately treated...
