Eotaxin-3 and a uniquely conserved gene-expression profile in eosinophilic esophagitis.
Eosinophilic esophagitis (EE) is an emerging disorder with a poorly understood pathogenesis. In order to define disease mechanisms, we took an empirical approach analyzing esophageal tissue by aExpand

Periostin facilitates eosinophil tissue infiltration in allergic lung and esophageal responses
Periostin is an extracellular matrix protein that has been primarily studied in the context of the heart, where it has been shown to promote cardiac repair and remodeling. In this study, we focusedExpand

Reslizumab in children and adolescents with eosinophilic esophagitis: results of a double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled trial.
BACKGROUND Eosinophilic esophagitis is a chronic allergic disease with insufficient treatment options. Results from animal studies suggest that IL-5 induces eosinophil trafficking in the esophagus.Expand

Common variants at 5q22 associate with pediatric eosinophilic esophagitis
Eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE) is an allergic disorder characterized by the accumulation of eosinophils in the esophagus. We report association of EoE with variants at chromosome 5q22 encompassingExpand

Variants of thymic stromal lymphopoietin and its receptor associate with eosinophilic esophagitis.
BACKGROUND The genetic cause of eosinophilic esophagitis (EE) has been largely unexplored until a recent genome-wide association study identified a disease susceptibility locus on 5q22, a region thatExpand

Desmoglein-1 regulates esophageal epithelial barrier function and immune responses in eosinophilic esophagitis
The desmosomal cadherin desmoglein-1 (DSG1) is an essential intercellular adhesion molecule that is altered in various human cutaneous disorders; however, its regulation and function in allergicExpand

IL-13 involvement in eosinophilic esophagitis: transcriptome analysis and reversibility with glucocorticoids.
BACKGROUND Eosinophilic esophagitis (EE) is an emerging worldwide disease that mimics gastroesophageal reflux disease. Early studies have established that esophageal eosinophilia occurs inExpand

A striking local esophageal cytokine expression profile in eosinophilic esophagitis.
BACKGROUND Eosinophilic esophagitis (EE) is an emerging worldwide disease that mimics gastroesophageal reflux disease. OBJECTIVE Early studies have suggested that esophageal eosinophilia occurs inExpand

Induction of Interleukin-9-Producing Mucosal Mast Cells Promotes Susceptibility to IgE-Mediated Experimental Food Allergy.
Experimental IgE-mediated food allergy depends on intestinal anaphylaxis driven by interleukin-9 (IL-9). However, the primary cellular source of IL-9 and the mechanisms underlying the susceptibilityExpand

Coordinate Interaction between IL-13 and Epithelial Differentiation Cluster Genes in Eosinophilic Esophagitis
We have previously proposed that the pathogenesis of eosinophilic esophagitis (EE) is mediated by an IL-13–driven epithelial cell response associated with marked gene dysregulation includingExpand
