The purpose of this study is to conduct a clinical trial of two formulations of budesonide (nebulized/swallowed versus viscous/swallowed) in patients with EoE to determine if medication contact time and distribution in the esophagus relates to treatment response. The investigators will also determine if there is systemic absorption of these topical steroids. The investigators hypothesize that tissue and symptom response will correlate with esophageal medication contact time and distribution, and that significant systemic absorption will not be seen.
Allocation: Randomized, Control: Active Control, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment

This study is designed to evaluate whether or not oral viscous budesonide is effective in treating children with Eosinophilic Esophagitis.
The purpose of this study is to assess the efficacy of a low and high dose of a budesonide effervescent tablet and oral viscous budesonide suspension vs. placebo for the induction treatmen...
Eosinophilic esophagitis (EE) is a recently recognized entity. It has been thought to be related to both allergies and acid reflux. There have been reports that both swallowed, aerosoliz...

Although swallowed topical corticosteroids (STCs) are effective in inducing remission of active eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE), there are few data on maintenance of long-term remission. We evaluated t...
We aimed to determine the safety and efficacy of budesonide oral suspension (BOS) maintenance therapy in patients with eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE).
Patients with mild asthma often rely on inhaled short-acting β-agonists for symptom relief and have poor adherence to maintenance therapy. Another approach might be for patients to receive a fast-act...

Lung ischemia-reperfusion injury (LIRI) after lung transplantation can lead to primary graft dysfunction. Budesonide can improve endothelial function to reduce lung injury. This study was aimed to exa...
A pharmaceutical preparation of budesonide and formoterol fumarate that is used as an ANTI-ASTHMATIC AGENT and for the treatment of CHRONIC OBSTRUCTIVE PULMONARY DISEASE.
A glucocorticoid used in the management of ASTHMA, the treatment of various skin disorders, and allergic RHINITIS.
Concretions of swallowed hair, fruit or vegetable fibers, or similar substances found in the alimentary canal.
Chronic ESOPHAGITIS characterized by esophageal mucosal EOSINOPHILIA. It is diagnosed when an increase in EOSINOPHILS are present over the entire esophagus. The reflux symptoms fail to respond to PROTON PUMP INHIBITORS treatment, unlike in GASTROESOPHAGEAL REFLUX DISEASE. The symptoms are associated with IgE-mediated hypersensitivity to food or inhalant allergens.
