Characteristics of Eosinophilic Gastritis, Enteritis, and Colitis in a Multi-Site Cohort

Study Purpose

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).

Recruitment Criteria

Accepts Healthy Volunteers

Healthy volunteers are participants who do not have a disease or condition, or related conditions or symptoms

Study Type

An interventional clinical study is where participants are assigned to receive one or more interventions (or no intervention) so that researchers can evaluate the effects of the interventions on biomedical or health-related outcomes.

An observational clinical study is where participants identified as belonging to study groups are assessed for biomedical or health outcomes.

Searching Both is inclusive of interventional and observational studies.

Eligible Ages N/A and Over
Gender All
More Inclusion & Exclusion Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • - Diagnosis of an EGID including EG, EGE, and/or EC.
Subjects with EoE can be included if they also have another EGID.
  • - Clinical symptoms of gastrointestinal dysfunction.
  • - Findings of increased eosinophils on tissue biopsy at the time of diagnosis, before treatment initiated.
  • - Exclusion of other causes of gastrointestinal eosinophilia.

Exclusion Criteria:

Trial Details

Trial ID:

This trial id was obtained from ClinicalTrials.gov, a service of the U.S. National Institutes of Health, providing information on publicly and privately supported clinical studies of human participants with locations in all 50 States and in 196 countries.


Phase 1: Studies that emphasize safety and how the drug is metabolized and excreted in humans.

Phase 2: Studies that gather preliminary data on effectiveness (whether the drug works in people who have a certain disease or condition) and additional safety data.

Phase 3: Studies that gather more information about safety and effectiveness by studying different populations and different dosages and by using the drug in combination with other drugs.

Phase 4: Studies occurring after FDA has approved a drug for marketing, efficacy, or optimal use.
