Objectives: Various dietary interventions have been used to treat patients with eosinophilic gastroenteritis (EGE). Concrete evidence as to the effectiveness of such treatments in inducing disease remission is, however, lacking. The aim of the study was to systematically review the efficacy of dietary therapies in inducing EGE remission. Methods: We performed a systematic search for the MEDLINE, EMBASE, and SCOPUS libraries for studies investigating the efficacy of dietary interventions (in…

More research is needed to compare the efficacy and safety profiles of the various treatments available, and to select the prognostic factors of relapse, which in turn will be extremely important in making decisions about the initial treatment phase and maintenance therapy.

Current Approaches to Eosinophilic Gastroenteritis and Its Nutritional Interventions

The treatment methods of EGE, its relationship with nutrition and the importance of diet treatment are presented, and different dietary approaches used in the treatment of the disease were classified, and case series were evaluated in the light of the current literature.

Eosinophilic gastroenteritis: epidemiology, diagnosis, and treatment.

For accurate diagnosis, plasma concentrations of thymic stromal lymphopoietin and IL-33 may be useful as biomarkers, though consensus has not been reached, while increased eosinophil infiltration in gastrointestinal tissue remains a critical factor.

A summary of the different diagnostic tools utilized in practice, as well as the different therapeutic approaches available for EGE management, are provided.

Targeted Therapies for Eosinophilic Gastrointestinal Disorders

Novel targeted therapies, some imported from bronchial asthma and atopic dermatitis, are currently being assessed in EoE, and non-biological therapies for eosinophilic gut disorders, which include preventing the activation of Janus kinase (JAK)-signal transducer and activator of transcription (STAT) and chemoattractant receptor expressed on T helper 2 cells (CRTH2) signaling pathways, are reviewed.

Strategy for Food Reintroduction Following Empiric Elimination and Elemental Dietary Therapy in the Treatment of Eosinophilic Gastrointestinal Disorders

Clinicians are confronted with multiple challenges regarding the best practice for food reintroduction and identification of potential dietary triggers including order of foods being challenged and duration between endoscopic procedures.

Eosinophilic gastroenteritis: clinical experience with 15 patients.

Eosinophilic gastroenteritis is a rare condition of unclear etiology characterized by relapses and remissions and short courses of corticosteroids are the mainstay of treatment, although some patients with relapsing disease require long-term low-dose steroids.

Incidence and Prevalence of Eosinophilic Esophagitis in Children

During the last 2 decades, the incidence and prevalence of eosinophilic esophagitis in children have increased significantly; however, the population-based incidence andPrevalence vary widely across geographic variations, potentially because of variations in case of ascertainment between centers.

Although all patients had excellent response to therapy with amino acid-based formula and tolerated gradual introduction of some foods with time, food-responsive disease persisted in all patients over 2.5 to 5.5 years of follow-up, and food hypersensitivities did not completely resolve over up to 5 years.

Ketotifen, as last resource in patients with bad response to habitual treatment and restriction diet, was used, and it is considered that stabilizing mast cell membrane with subsequent inhibition of degranulation and recruitment of eosinophils to sites of inflammation, would also restrain histamine liberation and blockage of H1 receptors, which would diminish local damage induced by eos inophils.
