Ejaz Cheema

J Pharm Policy Pract 2019 29;12. Epub 2019 Mar 29.

Institute of clinical sciences, University of Birmingham, Edgbaston, Birmingham, B15 2TT UK.

Background: Proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) are used worldwide for the treatment of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) and peptic ulcer disease (PUD). Although considered to be widely safe, PPIs have been associated with the potential risk of adverse effects such as infections including pneumonia and , malabsorption of vitamins and minerals, dementia and more recently with chronic kidney disease (CKD). Evidence including large cohort studies suggests that there is a greater risk of developing CKD in chronic users of PPIs. Read More

Allergic Comorbidity in Eosinophilic Esophagitis: Mechanistic Relevance and Clinical Implications.

Clin Rev Allergy Immunol 2019 Mar 22. Epub 2019 Mar 22.

Division of Allergy and Immunology, Department of Pediatrics, Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania, Abramson Research Building, 3615 Civic Center Blvd, Philadelphia, PA, 19104, USA.

Allergic eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE) is a chronic, allergen-mediated inflammatory disease of the esophagus, and the most common cause of prolonged dysphagia in children and young adults in the developed world. While initially undistinguished from gastroesophageal reflux disease-associated esophageal eosinophilia, EoE is now recognized as a clinically distinct entity that shares fundamental inflammatory features of other allergic conditions and is similarly increasing in incidence and prevalence. The clinical and epidemiologic associations between EoE and other allergic manifestations are well established. Read More
