Study of an Investigational Drug to Treat Eosinophilic Esophagitis (EoE) in Adults and Adolescents

Description

Seeking people aged 12 and older with Eosinophilic Esophagitis (EoE) for a study of an investigational drug to treat esophageal inflammation. Some study volunteers will be randomly assigned to get the investigational drug and others will get a pill that does not have any medication (placebo)

Overview

We are studying whether a drug that has been show to block proteins thought to cause allergic diseases like eczema and asthma will be safe and effective in relieving Eosinophilic Esophagitis (EoE) symptoms.

What we're hoping for

Evaluate how the investigational drug works in the body, if it causes side effects in people who take it, and if it relieves EoE symptoms and reduces esophageal inflammation
