Daniel W. Thomas, MD, is chief of the Division of Pediatric Gastroenterology and Nutrition. Along with overseeing the activities of the division, Dr. Thomas co-directs the Liver and Intestinal Transplant program at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. Major areas of research interest are gastrointestinal problems in the neonate, protein metabolism in the intestine and protein-losing enteropathy, nutritional complications of gastrointestinal and liver disorders, intestinal development, augmentation, and transplantation, liver transplantation, chronic inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) and acute liver failure. Ongoing research studies include clinical research of GI disease, utilization of the fecal alpha-1-antrtypsim (FAIAT) excretion test as a routine clinical test for the diagnosis of protein-losing enteropathy (PLE), participation in clinical trials employing novel therapies for treatment of PLE, co-Investigator CHILDREN Liver Center Grant, and development of the novel use of the biologic therapeutic agent (Infliximab) to treat initial primary poor function of liver transplant grafts in order to prevent progression to primary nonfunction of the graft. Research is actively underway to evaluate the usefulness of a new clinical test to better assess the degree of post transplant immunoreactivity.
