Topic: An Overview of Thiamin Chemistry and Therapy with Eosinophilic Esophagitis as a Model by Derrick Lonsdale MD
End Pain - Dearborn, MI - September 26-28, 2014
Eosinophilic esophagitis, thought to be a relatively new disease, appears to be increasingly diagnosed worldwide. It is considered to be immune mediated from food or environmental antigens and standard treatment involves various modifications of diet. After a review of the biochemistry and potential therapeutic use of thiamin, the symptoms expressed by two cases of eosinophilic esophagitis, one of which had proven abnormal thiamin homeostasis, will be discussed. Although the biochemical lesion in each case appeared to be different, there is evidence that both responded to intravenous vitamin therapy.
