Age associated with sensitivity type in pediatric patients with EoE

August 27, 2014

Aeroallergen sensitivity increased with age while food sensitivity decreased in pediatric patients with eosinophilic esophagitis, according to recent study results.

S. Nicole Chadha, MD, of Carolina Asthma and Allergy Center, Charlotte, N.C., and colleagues conducted a retrospective study of 211 pediatric patients with eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE; median age, 7 years; 72% male) at Vanderbilt University Medical Center, Nashville, Tenn. Skin-prick testing (SPT), atopy patch testing (APT) and a history of associated atopic diseases were used to determine aeroallergen and food sensitization profiles.
