Clinical Advances in

Eosinophilic Gastrointestinal Diseases

Read Overview

Eosinophilic gastrointestinal diseases (EGIDs) comprise a group of disorders of the gastrointestinal tract marked by an increase in tissue eosinophils in the absence of other eosinophil-promoting diseases, such as infections, cancer, or inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). With the increased availability of endoscopy, EGIDs are being diagnosed more frequently than ever before, although there are still often lengthy diagnostic delays. At the same time, gains in knowledge about the underlying pathophysiology of EGIDs have led to accelerated research into new treatments, including biologic agents that target specific cell types and cytokines implicated in EGID pathogenesis. This Clinical Advances encompasses an array of CME-accredited video- and text-based educational programs presented by leading experts that examine the latest state of knowledge on the pathogenesis, diagnosis, and clinical management of EGIDs.
