Top 5 Reasons to Sign Up Today

Historically, patients with EoE have waited up to 10 years for an accurate diagnosis, causing them and their families to suffer physically, mentally, socially, and financially.

EoE incidence and prevalence are growing at rates that outpace increased disease recognition.

Patients with EoE may display a wide range of motility disorders, exhibiting possible disease-specific manometric pressurization patterns that are challenging to approach.

Fibrostenosing disease and narrow-caliber esophagus, defined as the inability to pass a standard-caliber adult endoscope, are among the most severe adverse events of EoE.

EoE is a disease increasingly being encountered in the gastroenterology clinics, endoscopy suites, hospital emergency rooms, primary care clinics, pediatric clinics, and allergist offices.
