Eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE) is a food allergy-associated inflammatory disease characterized by esophageal eosinophilia. Current management strategies for EoE are nonspecific, and thus there is a need to identify specific immunological pathways that could be targeted to treat this disease. EoE is associated with polymorphisms in the gene that encodes(More)
BACKGROUND Esophagogastric junction outflow obstruction (EGJOO) is an esophageal motility diagnosis associated with a myriad of conditions. The frequency of EGJOO attributed to anatomic causes compared to idiopathic causes is uncertain. Our study aims to identify the frequency of EGJOO and to compare these two groups. METHODS We conducted a case-control(More)
Pre-clinical studies using murine models are critical for understanding the pathophysiological mechanisms underlying immune-mediated disorders such as Eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE). In this study, an optical coherence tomography (OCT) system capable of providing three-dimensional images with axial and transverse resolutions of 5 µm and 10 µm, respectively,(More)
