Eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE) is thought to be a type of allergy that is often caused by food. When someone with EoE eats or even inhales some things in the environment, a type of white blood cell called eosinophils collect in the esophagus. As these cells aren’t normally there, they can cause symptoms such as swallowing difficulties, stomach pain, and vomiting.
Right now, research is underway to develop a new treatment for EoE, and you may be able to take part. Qualified participants between the ages of 11 and 55 will receive the investigational drug or a placebo (a look-alike substance that has no active drug in it), study-related medical exams, and lab tests. Compensation for travel may also be available.
