In 2005 we told the story of two-year-old Samuel who had been diagnosed with the newly recognised eosinophilic gastric disease and who was, effectively, intolerant of all food and many environmental allergens. Samuel's mother, Amanda brings us up to date, along with announcing the first ever conference to be held by FABED, the support group that she founded to help the ever growing numbers of families suffering from eosinophilic disease.

Is eosinophilic esophagitis an equivalent of pollen allergic asthma? Analysis of biopsies and therapy guided by component resolved diagnosis. Jan 2018
Allergy tests were performed on over 100 patients with eosinophilic esophagitis. Guided by these results, the patients were treated with elimination diet and/or immunotherapy for personal allergens. 78% of patients showed clinical improvement and this was even greater in those who underwent immunotherapy.
Individuals with eosinophilic esophagitis have a higher risk of various atopic diseases such as asthma, rhinitis and dermatitis. This study reports that they are also more likely to suffer from pollen-food allergy syndrome – with one quarter of patients having both conditions.

The first study to extensively characterize eosinophilic gastritis (EG) found that EG is a systemic disorder that has high levels of eosinophils in the blood and gastrointestinal tract, and has a gene expression pattern (transcriptome) that is distinct from that of a related disorder, eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE).
