Addressing Barriers to EoE Diagnosis and Treatment: The Role of Updated Guidelines and Novel Therapies

Activity Overview

Eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE) is a rare, debilitating chronic inflammatory disorder. Unfortunately, diagnostic delay is common and current management approaches do not fully address EoE symptoms or provide endoscopic and histologic resolution. However, several pathophysiologic pathways have been described and targeted therapies are under study for the treatment of EoE.

Join us for this live event to hear a multidisciplinary panel of experts and a patient with EoE discuss the diagnosis and management of this disorder, as well as pathophysiologic pathways and targets that are currently being explored for its treatment.

Target Audience

This activity is intended for allergy/immunology physicians, NPs, and PAs who manage patients with EoE.

Learning Objectives

Upon successful completion of this education activity, participants should be better able to:

  • Identify patients with eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE) early by applying guideline-based diagnostic approaches
  • Assess the potential benefits and disadvantages of contemporary management strategies for patients with EoE
  • Summarize the role of type 2-mediated immune reactivity in the development of EoE and its implication for treatment
  • Analyze available data on therapies targeting type 2 immune reactivity for the treatment of patients with EoE
