Eosinophilic Esophagitis clinical trials at University of California Health
3 in progress, 2 open to eligible people
open to eligible people ages 1-65
Single center observational and specimen banking study for children with eosinophilic esophagitis EoE to gauge natural history and inflammatory markers
open to eligible people ages 3 years and up
The purpose of this observational study is to find the best measures to define how well a person with eosinophilic disorder is doing. People with EoE, EG, EGE and EC normally undergo endoscopy and/or colonoscopy where cells are collected for microscopic analysis. Treatments are then decided based on how the cells look. We are aiming to compare different tissue components such as inflammatory cell types with clinical symptoms. We want to see if scores on standard questionnaires can give us an idea how well the person is doing.
Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients
The Primary objective is to demonstrate the efficacy of dupilumab treatment compared with placebo in pediatric patients with active eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE) based on histologic improvement meeting validated histologic criteria. The Secondary objectives are: - To demonstrate the efficacy of dupilumab compared to placebo in pediatric patients with active EoE after 16 weeks of treatment as assessed by endoscopic visual measurements of disease activity using the Eosinophilic Esophagitis-Endoscopic Reference Score (EoE-EREFS) and histologic abnormalities as measured by the EoE Histology Scoring System (EoE-HSS) - To evaluate the safety, tolerability, and immunogenicity of dupilumab treatment for up to 16 weeks in pediatric patients with active EoE - To evaluate the effects of dupilumab on transcriptomic signatures associated with EoE and type 2 inflammation - To study the effects of dupilumab on the type 2 inflammation gene expression signature - To evaluate the concentration-time profile of functional dupilumab in serum in this population - To assess efficacy of long-term (up to 160 weeks) dupilumab treatment - To assess the impact of dupilumab treatment on changes in weight and growth during the extended active period and open-label extension period of the study - To assess safety, tolerability, and immunogenicity of long-term (up to 160 weeks) dupilumab treatment - To evaluate the impact of dupilumab treatment on EoE signs and symptoms
Our lead scientists for Eosinophilic Esophagitis research studies include Seema Aceves.
