From AGA: Eosinophilic Esophagitis Index
“The Index of Severity for EoE (I-SEE) is now available for you to use as a tool to help assess EoE patients. Developed by a multidisciplinary team of experts, the new tool is now published in Gastroenterology.”
Details about I-SEE
- “The I-SEE has three domains: (1) symptoms and complications, (2) inﬂammatory features and (3) ﬁbrostenotic.
- I-SEE can be used at initial diagnosis and then at each subsequent visit, with the recall being only between visits so that the severity can be assessed over time and ultimately (when data supports this step) treatment and monitoring adjusted based on severity.
- As the number of children and adults with EoE increases worldwide, a simple system to assess and track disease activity in a meaningful way in a clinical setting is needed.
- I-SEE is for use in adult and pediatric patients with EoE. It was created by an international team of more than 30 experts in allergy, gastroenterology and pathology.”
