An Intervention Study to Improve Therapeutic Compliance in Adult Patients With Eosinophilic Esophagitis.

Study Purpose

In many chronic conditions adherence to long-term treatment is a challenge, also for patients with eosinophilic esophagitis. Interventions, such as behavioral, educational and reminder interventions might improve treatment adherence. With this trial the investigators want to assess the effects of additional education in combination with more frequent follow up and patient reminders on adherence to treatment in adult patients with eosinophilic esophagitis.

Recruitment Criteria

Accepts Healthy Volunteers

Healthy volunteers are participants who do not have a disease or condition, or related conditions or symptoms

Study Type

An interventional clinical study is where participants are assigned to receive one or more interventions (or no intervention) so that researchers can evaluate the effects of the interventions on biomedical or health-related outcomes.

An observational clinical study is where participants identified as belonging to study groups are assessed for biomedical or health outcomes.

Searching Both is inclusive of interventional and observational studies.

Phase 1: Studies that emphasize safety and how the drug is metabolized and excreted in humans.

Phase 2: Studies that gather preliminary data on effectiveness (whether the drug works in people who have a certain disease or condition) and additional safety data.

Phase 3: Studies that gather more information about safety and effectiveness by studying different populations and different dosages and by using the drug in combination with other drugs.

Phase 4: Studies occurring after FDA has approved a drug for marketing, efficacy, or optimal use.
