An additional proof for considering PPI-REE and EoE as a single entity

Saturday 19 September 2015

Patients diagnosed of PPI-REE may also show disease remission after dietary/topical steroid treatment, and some patients with EoE may achieve disease remission after PPI monotherapy

Race and gender are associated with differential features of EoE

Wednesday 16 September 2015

Clinical and endoscopic features of eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE) differ, not only between children and adults, but among racial backgrounds and genders.

Fluticasone Propionate treatment improves functional esophageal mucosal integrity in EoE

Wednesday 2 September 2015

Fluticasone propionate treatment improves the esophageal mucosal barrier integrity, with increased expression of desmoglein-1 and filaggrin while decreasing inflammation.

Can EoE be accurately predicted without mucosal biopsies?

Thursday 27 August 2015

A new set of clinical (younger age, male sex, dysphagia, food allergy) and endoscopic (rings, furrows, plaques, and lack of hiatal hernia) features were highly predictive of EoE, with no need of esophageal biopies.
