Access Activity

Overview / Abstract:

This activity was developed for gastroenterologists, allergists, immunologists, pediatric gastroenterologists, pediatric allergists/immunologists, specialty NP/PAs, and other healthcare professionals who have an interest in Eosinophilic Esophagitis.
Ikuo Hirano, MD, provides his academic expertise in esophageal swallowing physiology and clinical experience to improve the management of patients with eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE). To distinguish EoE from a myriad of diagnoses, Dr. Hirano shares his experience and discusses the latest evidence-based recommendations to assess and diagnose patients with EoE. He reviews common symptoms and food triggers and how to identify adaptive behaviors that can mask patients living with EoE. He shares an overview of ongoing unmet clinical needs along with an in-depth review of standard of care treatment and emerging therapies. To facilitate integration into practice, the activity is augmented by video clips and case discussions.
