Improvement of Foodallergy Diagnostic in Gastrointestinal Tract
Currently, diagnostic possibilities for the detection of food allergy in the gastrointestinal tract are scarce. The endoscopic segmental Lavage is the method of choice, but it´s controversial. Additional to the endoscopic segmental lavage fluid a cytobrush is used for collecting the mucosa cells and biopsies are taken. Comparative to the Lavage specific IgE antibodies, Tumor necrosis factor- alpha, Eosinophilic cation protein and mastcell tryptase were measured.
Accepts Healthy Volunteers
Healthy volunteers are participants who do not have a disease or condition, or related conditions or symptoms
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||18 Years and Over|
- - all patients with suspicion of food intolerance and confirmed food allergy.
Exclusion Criteria:- pregnant and patients under allergy medication (antihistaminic, cortison)
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.
The sponsor is the organization or person who oversees the clinical study and is responsible for analyzing the study data.
|University of Erlangen-Nürnberg Medical School|
The person who is responsible for the scientific and technical direction of the entire clinical study.
|Principal Investigator Affiliation||N/A|

Diagnostic Test: - Cytobrush
During the endoscopic Investigation the mucosa cells were collected by brushing the colon via cytobrush.
