Eosinophilic Esophagitis Steroid Safety Study
This observational study will follow pediatric patients with eosinophilic esophagitis who are scheduled to begin topical steroid treatment, from the initiation of treatment longitudinally to determine the safety profile of the drug.
Epidemiological Investigation and Cohort Study on Food Allergy in Children Aged 3 to 6 Years in Wenzhou and Taizhou Urban Areas
Objective 1. To investigate the status of food allergy among children aged 3 to 6 in Wenzhou and Taizhou urban areas. 2. To obtain the self-reported rate of parents or guardians of food allergy among children aged 3 to 6 in Wenzhou and Taizhou urban areas. 3. To obtain the prevalence of food allergy among children aged 3 to 6 in Wenzhou and Taizhou urban areas by conducting skin prick test (SPT), blood eosinophil (EOS) count, total immunoglobulin E (tIgE) measurement and serum specific IgE (sIgE) determination in children who self-reported food allergy, and conducting the open food...
Esophageal String Test in Eosinophilic Esophagitis
The overall goal of this study is to develop a novel minimally invasive device, the Esophageal String Test (EST) to monitor esophageal inflammation during treatment of the rare disease Eosinophilic Esophagitis (EoE) in a safe and efficacious manner. This study is broken down into 2 specific aims: Specific Aim 1: Identify the EoE Biomarker Panel (EBP) that will improve the sensitivity and specificity of the EST for documenting esophageal inflammation in a 1-hour time point. Specific Aim 2: Validate the ability of the EST EBP to monitor therapeutic efficacy in a 1-hour sampling time. Funding Source - FDA OOPD
Feasibility Study of a New Immunoglobulin E (IgE) Assay Method
The main objective is to study the feasibility of a new specific IgE assay using a bioluminescence technique in a pediatric and adult allergic population. For this, we will collect blood, and urine during a blood test scheduled for the follow-up of the patient.
Fibrostenotic Eosinophilic Esophagitis: Assessment Tools
This protocol addresses a central hypothesis that fibrostenotic Eosinophilic Esophagitis (EoE) is characterized by abnormal esophageal structure and compliance compared to non fibrostenotic EoE and that distinctive cellular and molecular profiles predict the fibrostenotic phenotype. This study aims to define and assess the changes that occur in the structure and dynamics of the esophageal wall in pediatric Eosinophilic Esophagitis along with characterizing the histologic and molecular patterns in fibrostenotic EoE.
Follow up of LEAP Participants and Their Families
This prospective, cross-sectional study is designed to improve understanding of how early-life introduction of peanuts may promote the development of tolerance at 12 years of age and will serve as an additional safety evaluation of this nutritional intervention.
Food Allergen OIT for Shrimp and Cashew
A prospective Phase 2, single-center, single-allergen OIT of cashew or shrimp in participants with proven allergies to either cashew or shrimp, respectively. We intend to treat 72 participants, ages 7 to 55 years with an allergy to either cashew, or shrimp determined by Double Blind-Placebo Controlled-Food Challenge (DBPCFC), allergy history, clinical symptoms, food-allergen (FA)-specific IgE levels, and skin prick test (SPT).
Food Allergy Registry at a Single Site
This is a registry of participants who are interested in being screened for clinical trials at a single site.
Food Antigen in Eosinophilic Esophagitis
The relationship or effect of food antigen (wheat based soy sauce) in eosinophilic esophagitis. It is believed that when food antigens are exposed to the esophageal tissue it starts an chronic allergy-based inflammation. This will be analyzed with the esophageal biopsies and the mucosal impedance probe.
Food-Specific and Component IgE Threshold Levels That Predict Food Allergy in People With Elevated Total Serum IgE Levels and Atopic Dermatitis
Background: Atopic dermatitis (AD), also called eczema, makes skin dry, red, and itchy. People with AD are more likely to get a food allergy than people without AD. But some food allergy tests are not always accurate in people with AD. Researchers want to study if people are truly allergic to milk and/or peanuts. Objectives: To improve the ways doctors test for food allergy in people with AD. Eligibility: People ages 3 21 who have had AD; have a high total IgE level (an allergic antibody); might have a milk and/or peanut allergy; and are currently enrolled in another NIH study Design: ...
