Efficacy of Amino Acid-Based Diet on Histologic Remission & Restoring Esophageal Mucosal Integrity in Adult EoE Patients

Event date: 6/23/2016

Join Marijn Warners, MD, PhD-fellow, for a free educational webinar to discuss her new research on the effectiveness of an elemental diet in the management of adult patients with EoE.  Dietary treatment with elimination of disease triggering allergens is an effective treatment option since it could provide a long-term and drug-free solution. Elemental amino acid-based diets are highly effective in children, and this new research supports its use in successfully managing adult patients with EoE. 

Webinar Objectives:

  • Evaluate the effect of an amino acid-based formula diet on eosinophilic inflammation, endoscopic signs and symptoms of adult EoE patients
  • Describe the contribution of abnormal esophageal barrier function in the pathophysiology of EoE
  • Explain the role of an amino acid-based formula diet in restoring esophageal mucosal integrity and induces histologic remission in adult EoE patients
  • Explore the role of an impaired small intestinal mucosal integrity in the pathophysiology of EoE
