The Cincinnati Center for Eosinophilic Disorders brings together experts in
allergy / immunology
to evaluate, treat and study these chronic medical problems in children. To help patients and families affected by eosinophilic disorders, our team offers a number of services.
Eosinophilic Esophagitis: Diagnostic Criteria and Recommendations
The first consensus recommendations for eosinophilic esophagitis were derived from the first symposium held by The International Gastrointestinal Eosinophil Researchers (TIGER), which was comprised of several members of the CCED faculty. These guidelines were published in 2007 as
Eosinophilic esophagitis in children and adults: a systematic review and consensus recommendations for diagnosis and treatment
These original consensus guidelines for eosinophilic esophagitis were reviewed and updated in 2011 and published as
Eosinophilic esophagitis: updated consensus recommendations for children and adults
, with several members of the CCED faculty contributing in this endeavor.
