We have been closely following the launch of Jorveza, the first licensed drug specifically approved for the treatment of adults with eosinophilic oesophagitis reported in Pharma Times October 2018 Read More

Jorveza is designed to reach and treat the affected areas of oesophageal inflammation and research showed that over a twelve-week treatment period 85% of patients using Jorveza achieved complete remission from their condition. This effectiveness together with its ease of use as a once a day, a tablet that dissolves on your tongue made the story welcome news.

The availability of Jorveza as an EoE treatment

During the last 2 years mainland Europe, UK, Australia and Canada have been processing the applications for funding approval in order for adult patients to access this new treatment.

An important part of EOS Networks role is to ensure the patient's voice is heard when authorities are accessing how new medications may affect the patient's experience when living with eosinophilic oesophagitis.

Unfortunately, Covid-19 has caused some delays due to the shutdown of government offices and natural prioritisation Covid-19 treatment applications.

However, during this period, we are pleased to say that further research has been completed for the long-term use of Jorveza as a maintenance therapy rather than just a twelve-week treatment.
