OBJECTIVES The Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) emphasizes the importance of medical trainees meeting specific performance benchmarks and demonstrating readiness for unsupervised practice. The aim of this study was to examine the readiness of Gastroenterology (GI) fellowship programs for competency-based evaluation in endoscopic(More)
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 Eosinophilic oesophagitis (EoE) is a chronic inflammatory condition affecting both children and adults. Little is known about the natural history of EoE in the transition from childhood into adulthood. AIM To determine the prevalence of EoE symptoms and impact of EoE on quality of life among adults diagnosed with EoE during childhood. METHODS(More)
p16(INK4a) is a major tumor-suppressor protein, but its regulation and settings of fuction remain poorly understood. To explore the notion that p16 is induced in vivo in response to replicative stress, we examined p16 expression in tissues from human ulcerative colitis (UC; n = 25) and normal controls (n = 20). p16 was expressed strongly in UC-associated(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)

OBJECTIVES A growing population of adolescents/young adults with eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE) and eosinophilic gastroenteritis (EGE) will need to transition from pediatric to adult health providers. Measuring healthcare transition (HCT) readiness is critical, but no studies have evaluated this process in EoE/EGE. We determined the scope and predictors of(More)
