Mayo Clinic Program for the Study of Mast Cell and Eosinophil DisordersBy Mayo Clinic Staff
Mayo Clinic allergy and collaborating physicians are leaders in mast cell and eosinophil-associated disease research. As part of their research, they have discovered several new syndromes and identified how mast cells and eosinophils play a role in a variety of diseases.
Mayo Clinic physicians have a special interest in the diagnosis and treatment of systemic mastocytosis — including mastocytosis in infants and children — mast cell activation syndrome, hypereosinophilic syndrome and eosinophilic leukemia. They have published research findings on:
- The diagnosis and treatment of hypereosinophilic disorders including hypereosinophilic syndrome and eosinophilic leukemia
- Eosinophilia and its role in the development of bronchial asthma
- The role of eosinophils in atopic dermatitis
- Single-organ eosinophil disorders, such as eosinophilic esophagitis, eosinophilic fasciitis, eosinophilic gastroenteritis and eosinopohilic otitis
- The diagnosis and treatment of limited and systemic forms of mastocytosis and mast cell activation syndrome
