INVESTIGATIONAL BIOLOIGIC INFUSION
This study is being done to see how safe the investigational new drug, AK002 is, and how it affects the number of eosinophils in the duodenum. AK002 is an intravenous drug, meaning that it is given through a needle placed in your vein. AK002 is a humanized antibody, which is a protein produced by the body’s immune system that recognizes and helps fight infections and other foreign substances in the body.
ORAL MEDICATION STUDY FOR EOE
The purpose of this study is to assess an investigational drug called etrasimod in the treatment of eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE). This study is being done to find out which dose of etrasimod works best and which is the safest dose for people with EoE. The study will also look at how etrasimod works, and whether it will reduce the number of eosinophils in the esophagus and help improve the pain or difficulty of swallowing in people with EoE.
