CURED Foundation Donates for Eosinophilic Disorder Treatment and Research
The Campaign Urging Research for Eosinophilic Disease (CURED), a not-for-profit foundation dedicated to those suffering from eosinophilic disorders, has donated $100,000 to the Cincinnati Center for Eosinophilic Disorders (CCED), based at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center. The CURED Foundation works extensively in supporting families and raising funds for research. One-hundred percent of funds raised by the CURED Foundation go to research for eosinophilic disorders. To date, CURED has contributed over 4 million dollars to research.

Improved Scoring System for the Food Allergic Disease Eosinophilic Esophagitis in Children
Researchers have developed and validated a histologic scoring system to objectively
analyze pathologic features of eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE), a severe, often painful food allergy that renders children unable to eat a wide variety of foods. This study was led by researchers in the Division of Allergy and Immunology and the Cincinnati Center for Eosinophilic Disorders at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center.
