Allergy School on Eosinophilic Esophagitis
16 – 18 March 2017
Rotterdam – Vlaardingen, Netherlands

Organisers: EAACI Eosinophilic Esophagitis Interest Group

allergy school on eosinophilic esophagitis

The aim of the Allergy School is to educate young clinicians and researchers interested in Eosinophilic Esophagitis and stimulate the scientific and social contact between them.

The following topics will be covered:
  • Pathophysiology of EoE
  • Allergy testing: skin tests, CAP or component testing
  • Role of diets in EoE: elementary foods, six food diet or based on allergy tests
  • Therapy and long term follow up: pharmacological treatment, dilatation

The Allergy School will include lectures as well as practical workshops and abstract presentations.

The goal of this Allergy School is to teach attendees the pathophysiology, diagnosis, treatment and follow up of EoE. Participants will go home with up to date knowledge on EoE and will ultimately be able to bring it into practise in their daily patient care. The Allergy School will also give the possibility to network with people treating EoE and facilitating international cooperation.
