Scientists have identified four new genes associated with the severe food allergy eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE).
Many of the major milestones in understanding eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE), a food allergy that affects the esophagus, began in research laboratories at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia and the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania.
Some children who outgrow one type of food allergy may then develop another type of allergy, more severe and more persistent, to the same food.
