Researchers at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital study cells to treat debilitating food allergy

Researchers at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital have identified a potential new way to treat a debilitating food allergy — eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE) — which causes inflammation that makes swallowing and eating painful.

Senior author Marc Rothenberg, MD, PhD, director of the Division of Allergy and Immunology, helped establish EoE as its own disorder while Cincinnati Children’s has grown to become the nation’s leading center for treating and studying the disease.

Their hope is to improve results and increase remission time, as well as use the research to treat other diseases in the future, such as asthma, atopic dermatitis, and allergic rhinitis.
