Current studies underway

Early life exposures and the risk of EoE and other EGIDs

This survey study asks the question are early life exposures, such as Cesarean delivery, lack of breast feeding, antibiotics in infancy, or lack of presence of pets, and other exposures associated with subsequent development of EoE or other EGIDs? We hypothesize that certain early life factors increase the risk of EGIDs.


Burden of disease for patients with EoE and other EGIDs

This survey study asks the question what is the patient-level burden of disease related to EoE and EGIDs? We hypothesize that patient-level burden will be more substantial than previously reported, as our data will take into account actual expenditures for all medical care, treatments, and procedures, as well as missed time from work for patients and care takers, which will be novel and patient-centric data.
