Assessing the Potential Patient Care Implications of New Data in Eosinophilic Esophagitis: Clinical Transfers®

Proprietary Educational Format:

Activity Overview

In this activity, 2 experts in the diagnosis and management of eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE) analyze data on the treatment of this disease that was presented at the 2021 Digestive Disease Week virtual meeting. Topics for discussion include updates on current management approaches for EoE, new research highlighting the pathophysiological underpinnings of EoE, and late-breaking data on emerging treatment approaches for individuals with EoE.
