Conference on Eosinophilic Gastrointestinal Disorders

By Elaine Moore on 5/31/2012

Eosinophils are white blood cells that increase in response to allergies, drug reactions and parasites. Increases are also seen in autoimmune eosinophilic gastroenteritis, celiac disease, inflammatory bowel disease,  reflux oesophagitis, coeliac and microscopic and infectious colitis. Increased levels of eosinophils may also be a feature of polyarteriitis nodosa and Churg–Strauss syndrome, and can accompany connective-tissue disease as well as malignant lymphomas and adenocarcinomas of gastrointestinal mucosa.

The American Partnership for Eosinophilic Disorders (APFED) organization is hosting its 10th annual patient education conference from July 6-8, 2012 in San Diego, CA. The schedule includes sessions for parents as well as children and covers treatment, allergy testing, eosinophilic esophagitis, gastroenteritis, colitis, tube feeding, restricted diets and more. Online registration is available at Apfed.
