Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

1) Less than 18

2) A documented diagnosis of EoE by endoscopic biopsy prior to screening, as demonstrated by intraepithelial eosinophilic infiltration (peak cell count greater than 15 eos/hpf) from at least one esophageal region and performed after at least 8 weeks of treatment with a high-dose PPI regimen.

3) At least 2 episodes of dysphagia (with intake of solids) per week in the 4 weeks prior to screening. 

Exclusion Criteria:

1) History of achalasia, Crohn's Disease, ulcerative colitis, celiac disease, and prior esophageal surgery.

2) Any esophageal stricture unable to be passed with a standard, diagnostic, 9 to 10 mm upper endoscope or any critical esophageal stricture that requires dilation at screening.

3) Treatment with swallowed topical corticosteroids within 8 weeks prior to baseline.
