  Purpose

Do patients with eosinophilic esophagitis have baseline increased esophageal mucosal impedance?

And will treatment that reverses esophageal eosinophilia in patients, correct abnormalities in mucosal impedance?


Condition Intervention
Eosinophilic Esophagitis Device: Mucosal Impedance

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Diagnostic
Official Title: Mucosal Impedance in Eosinophilic Esophagitis and the Effect of Treatment

Further study details as provided by David A. Katzka, Mayo Clinic:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Effective treatment is defined by the elimination of esophageal eosinophilia on follow up endoscopic biopsy. [ Time Frame: basesline to one year ]
    As a pilot, ten patients will be studied before and after treatment for eosinophilic esophagitis. This number of patients will be increased if there are treatment failures until there is a total of ten effectively treated patients studied. Effective treatment is defined by the elimination of esophageal eosinophilia on follow up endoscopic biopsy. Ten control patients without esophageal disease will be studied.


Estimated Enrollment: 60
Study Start Date: September 2013
Estimated Study Completion Date: December 2018
Estimated Primary Completion Date: August 2018 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Mucosal Impedance

Patients with Eosinophilic Esophagitis and patient without trouble swallowing,during your clinical endoscopy (a standard procedure that allows your doctor to look at the inside of your swallowing tube), the 2.13 mm catheter (tiny tube), called an Intraluminal Impedance, will be passed through the channel of the standard endoscope. This device has not been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) but it is considered to be minimal risk related to using it.

  • The catheter (tiny tube) will be placed through the endoscope in your esophagus (swallowing tube) 5 cm above where your stomach and esophagus meet for 5 seconds.
  • At 10 cm above where your stomach and esophagus meet the catheter will be placed for 5 seconds
  • And at 20 cm above where your stomach and esophagus meet the catheter will be placed for 5 seconds.
Device: Mucosal Impedance

Mucosal impedance- a (tiny tube) will be placed through the endoscope in your esophagus (swallowing tube) 5 cm above where your stomach and esophagus meet for 5 seconds.

  • At 10 cm above where your stomach and esophagus meet the catheter will be placed for 5 seconds
  • And at 20 cm above where your stomach and esophagus meet the catheter will be placed for 5 seconds.

This will determine if people with eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE) have an increased esophageal mucosa impedance (food getting into the esophageal tissue).

Other Names:
  • ph impedance
  • ph monitor

Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Criteria

Inclusion criteria:

  • Adults ages 18-90 undergoing clinically indicated upper endoscopy
