Intracellular staining for eosinophil-derived neurotoxin was reduced in 81% of subjects who received fluticasone (13 of 16) compared with 8% who received placebo (1 of 13) (P < .001). Dysphagia was reduced in 57% of subjects who received fluticasone (12 of 21) compared with 33% who received placebo (7 of 21) (P = .22) by intention-to-treat analysis; dysphagia was reduced in 63% of patients who received fluticasone (12 of 19) and 47% of those who received placebo (7 of 15) (P = .49) based on per-protocol analysis. Esophageal candidiasis developed in 26% of subjects who received fluticasone (5 of 19), but in none of the subjects in the placebo group (P = .05). Aerosolized, swallowed fluticasone leads to a histologic but not a symptomatic response in adults with EoE.]]> Sat 24 Mar 2018 08:18:19 AEDT ]]> Occurrence of and risk factors for complications after endoscopic dilation in eosinophilic esophagitis https://ogma.newcastle.edu.au/vital/access/ /manager/Repository/uon:12380 Sat 24 Mar 2018 08:18:00 AEDT ]]> Low grade esophageal eosinophilia in adults: an unrecognized part of the spectrum of eosinophilic esophagitis? https://ogma.newcastle.edu.au/vital/access/ /manager/Repository/uon:12433 Sat 24 Mar 2018 08:15:28 AEDT ]]> The diagnosis of esophageal eosinophilia is not increased in the summer months https://ogma.newcastle.edu.au/vital/access/ /manager/Repository/uon:26864 4 aeroallergens in 47 % (33/70) and reactions to any food allergen in 63 % (50/80) of patients.
