The RESTORE enduring will focus on the epidemiology, pathophysiology, diagnosis, and treatment of eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE). Patients with EoE are often diagnosed after symptom onset, leading to greater chronic inflammation, and treatment plans are frequently not tailored to individual needs. This activity is intended to help healthcare professionals diagnose EoE earlier and provide individualized treatment based on guidelines, recent clinical data, and patient characteristics.
The RESTORE Initiative is intended to meet the educational needs of gastroenterologists, allergist/ immunologists, ENT specialists, and other members of the multidisciplinary team to ensure optimal patient outcomes in the management of EoE.
- Evaluate the underlying pathophysiology of eosinophilic esophagitis as related to the type 2 inflammatory pathway
- Examine deficiencies in existing off-label therapies for the management of eosinophilic esophagitis
- Summarize current clinical data concerning the use of novel therapies for the management of eosinophilic esophagitis
