BACKGROUND Although IgE antibodies to cow's milk and wheat are common in patients with eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE), titers are low and responses to diet are not dependent on having IgE antibodies. OBJECTIVE To better define specific IgE antibody responses to foods, focusing on those foods that appear to play a role in EoE. METHODS Adult (n = 46) and pediatric (n = 51) patients with EoE were recruited for skin prick testing and serum measurement (whole and diluted) of IgE antibodies… CONTINUE READING
