Eating With Eosinophilic Esophagitis (EoE)

Study Purpose

Is there a difference in the eating process for patients with active Eosinophilic Esophagitis (EoE) and those with inactive disease?

Recruitment Criteria

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

Accepts Healthy Volunteers

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.

Trial Details

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.

Trial ID:

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.

Eosinophilic Esophagitis (EoE)
Additional Details

Eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE) patients develop adapted eating behaviors to prevent symptoms. These patients tend to cut their food small, chew extensively, take copious liquids with meals, and avoid foods that cause symptoms. No studies to date have directly evaluated these eating behaviors in patients with EoE with observation. Furthermore, none of the investigators' current metrics for patient symptom assessment visually evaluate the eating process nor are they compared before and after treatment. As a result, it is unclear if a patient's subjective perception of their eating difficulties and improvement matches with objective measures.
