"Can patients with cow’s milk-mediated eosinophilic esophagitis tolerate baked milk?"

cow's milk mediated EoE (CMME)


Quote
The authors’ findings suggest that a majority of patients with CMME could tolerate baked milk products without recurrence of EoE.

"As one food allergy resolves, another may develop"
http://www.eurekalert.org/pub_releases/2014-03/chop-aof022814.php

Quote
The researchers performed a retrospective analysis of all children seen at CHOP for EoE between 2000 and 2012, a total of 1,375 patients. Of that number, 425 could be shown to have a definite food causing their condition—most commonly milk, egg, soy and wheat. Within that subgroup, 17 patients had developed EoE to a food after having outgrown IgE-mediated allergy to that specific food.

Approximately half of the patients treated with corticosteroids reported symptomatic improvement while over three-quarters of patients reported an improvement on allergy avoidance dietary therapy. At a median follow-up of 31.1 (IQR=81.8-13.4) months, 16 (17%) patients had no change in symptoms from diagnosis, 53 (56%) patients continued to experience symptoms but at a decreased severity, and 17 (18%) experienced a complete resolution of symptoms. Eight (9%) of patients were lost to follow up.

"Patient Ratings Of Various Eosinophilic Esophagitis Treatment Options"
Samantha K. Lin, MD, Neelu Kalra, MD, Gisoo Ghaffari, MD FAAAAI
https://aaaai.confex.com/aaaai/2014/webprogram/Paper11676.html

Quote
Rationale: Eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE) can be treated with various combinations of a proton pump inhibitor (PPI), topical steroid (TS), and elimination diet (D). This study assessed which treatments patients were using and sought to determine patient/caregiver ratings of EoE symptoms, response to treatment, and tolerability of therapy.

Quote
Use of a topical steroid was associated with significantly higher treatment response ratings and very few side effects.

"New EoE Test Developed"
http://allergicliving.com/2013/12/05/new-eoe-test-developed/

Quote
Researchers at the Cincinnati Children’s Hospital have developed a ground breaking diagnostic test for eosinophilic esophagitis, or EoE.


Quote
It also differentiated between those whose EoE was in remission and those who didn’t have EoE at all.


Quote
The test uses a method known as gene expression profiling

Quote
This position paper of the Eosinophilic Esophagitis Working Group (see Appendix) and the Gastroenterology Committee of ESPGHAN aims at providing practical guidelines for the management of children and adolescents with EoE, based on available evidence where possible. If sufficient evidence is lacking, our recommendations are based on expert opinion and personal practice.

Esophageal eosinophilia and eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE) are increasingly recognized and prevalent conditions, which now represent common clinical problems encountered by gastroenterologists, pathologists, and allergists.


Quote
In this evidence-based review, recommendations developed by adult and pediatric gastroenterologists are provided for the evaluation and management of these patients.
