Novel molecular panel found to aid in eosinophilic gastritis diagnosis

Key clinical point: A novel diagnostic panel has high performance for distinguishing eosinophilic gastritis (EG) patients from non-EG controls.

Major finding: The EGDP18 score identified active EG patients in both cohorts (P less than .0001, AUC equal to or greater than 0.95).

Study details: A molecular analysis of 18 genes highly dysregulated in EG.

Disclosures: The researchers reported having no financial disclosures.
