Characteristics and Inflammatory Markers in Children With Eosinophilic Esophagitis (EoE)
Single center observational and specimen banking study for children with eosinophilic esophagitis EoE to gauge natural history and inflammatory markers
Characteristics of Eosinophilic Gastritis, Enteritis, and Colitis in a Multi-Site Cohort
The purpose of this study is to investigate features of patients with Eosinophilic Gastrointestinal Disorders (EGIDs) other than Eosinophilic Esophagitis (EoE) alone, including Eosinophilic Gastritis (EG), Eosinophilic Gastroenteritis (EGE), and Eosinophilic Colitis (EC).
Clinical Study Using Biologics to Improve Multi OIT Outcomes
Food allergy (FA) is a serious public health concern that causes potentially-life threatening reactions in affected patients. The prevalence of food allergy in the United States (U.S.) has increased substantially and now affects 15 million patients:4-8% of children (6 million children, 30% with multiple food allergies) and about 9% of adults. This is a prospective Phase 2, single-center, multi-allergen OIT study in participants with proven allergies to 2 or 3 different foods in which one must be a peanut. The total of participants in the clinical study will be 110, ages 6 to 25 years with a history of multiple food allergies of 2 to 3 ...
Clinical Utility of Handheld Hydrogen Breathalyzer in Identification of Food Sensitivities (AIRE Study)
Small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO) is defined as a condition in which an abnormally high amount of coliform bacteria is present in the small bowel and results in premature anaerobic fermentation of carbohydrates before reaching the colon. Commonly recognized causes include gastric achlorhydria, post-surgical bowel stasis, gastrocolic/coloenteric fistulas, and motility disorders leading to bowel stasis.. The current "gold standard" for the diagnosis of SIBO, is a breath test that measures the concentration of hydrogen in response to lactulose, a carbohydrate that is only metabolized by bacteria. However, its accuracy is only about...
Combination Chemotherapy in Treating Patients With Non-Metastatic Extracranial Ewing Sarcoma
This randomized phase III trial studies combination chemotherapy to see how well it works compared to combination chemotherapy with topotecan hydrochloride in treating patients with extracranial Ewing sarcoma that has not spread from the primary site to other places in the body. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as vincristine sulfate, doxorubicin hydrochloride, cyclophosphamide, ifosfamide, etoposide, and topotecan hydrochloride, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. Giving more than one drug (combination chemotherapy) may...
Continuation Study With Budesonide Oral Suspension (BOS) for Adolescent and Adult Participants With Eosinophilic Esophagitis (EoE)
This is a continuation study of Budesonide Oral Suspension (BOS) in adults and adolescents with Eosinophilic Esophagitis (EoE) who have completed participation in the SHP621-302 extension study. The purpose of this study is to see if BOS is safe and well tolerated over the long-term in adolescents and adults with EoE.
Cytosponge and Dietary Therapy in EoE
This study is being done to see if the investigators can use only the cytosponge ( A 10 minute, in office procedure that does not require sedation) to replace the 6-10 endoscopies routinely perform during dietary restriction and food reintroduction in EoE?
Cytosponge Protocol IRB 11-006429
Whether the cytosponge will be a useful non-invasive tool in evaluating patients with eosinophilic esophagitis?
Data and Sample Collection Study to Elucidate the Mechanisms of Eosinophilic Disorders
The purpose of this study is to elucidate the mechanisms underlying eosinophil growth, survival, migration, and function and to investigate and further characterize the pathophysiology of, clinical manifestations of, and spectrum of disease severity of eosinophilic inflammation in humans.
Defining ENDOtypes in Perioperative Hypersensitivity by Extensive Cellular and Molecular PHENotyping (ENDOPHEN)
Perioperative Acute Hypersensitivity (PAH) is a systemic reaction that occurs rapidly following injection of a drug during anesthesia. The main mechanism evoked is an immune response of immediate systemic hypersensitivity or anaphylaxis. Anaphylactic reactions are classically described as IgE-dependent and triggered by the injection of allergen which by bridging specific IgE present on the surface of mast cells, induces a massive release of histamine responsible for the observed symptoms. The diagnosis of this mechanism (IgE endotype) requires the determination of associated circulating mediators (histamine and mast cell tryptase) as well...
