Location for Eos Gene(s) discovered
Pediatrics researchers have identified the first major gene location responsible for a severe, often painful type of food allergy called eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE). In this disease, which may cause weight loss, vomiting, heartburn and swallowing difficulties, a patient may be unable to eat a wide variety of foods.

I'm trying to find out if this is the team that asked us to help them find families for the study.

Doesn't tolerate amino acids?
That is very unusual. I assume that you have looked at mitochondrial and metabolic issues that mimic GERD?
Check with your
doctor first!
