Treatment With Topical Steroids Downregulates IL-5, Eotaxin-1/CCL11, and Eotaxin-3/CCL26 Gene Expression in Eosinophilic Esophagitis

OBJECTIVES:Our aim was to evaluate the changes induced by topical steroid treatment to the esophageal epithelial inflammatory eosinophilic and T-cell infiltrate and to IL-5, eotaxin-1/CCL11, and eotaxin-3/CCL26 esophageal gene expression levels in patients with eosinophilic esophagitis (EE).METHODS:Esophageal biopsies were taken from eight adult patients at… CONTINUE READING
