In eosinophilic esophagitis a type of white blood cell (eosinophil) builds up in the lining of the tube that connects your mouth to your stomach (esophagus).
This buildup, which is a reaction to foods, allergens or acid reflux, can inflame or injure the esophageal tissue. Damaged esophageal tissue can lead to difficulty swallowing or cause food to get stuck in your throat when you swallow.
Eosinophilic esophagitis is a chronic immune system disease. It has been identified only in the past two decades, but is now considered a major cause of digestive system (gastrointestinal) illness. Research is ongoing and will likely lead to revisions in the diagnosis and treatment of eosinophilic esophagitis.
Clinical trials are research studies performed on human subjects that aim to evaluate new medical, surgical or behavioral intervention. They are the primary way that researchers find out if a new treatment: such as a new drug, diet or medical device will be effective in helping to address ongoing medical concerns.
