Noam Zevit, MD, Evan Dellon MD, MPH, and Mirna Chehade MD, MPH, are collecting anonymized data on patients with eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE) and eosinophilic gastrointestinal diseases (EGID) who have been infected with COVID-19. The goal of their international registry, SECURE-EOE/EGID, is to get a better understanding of how the virus behaves in these patients in order to provide guidance to caregivers and patients.
Practitioners world-wide are encouraged to report all confirmed cases (including asymptomatic cases identified by through public health screening) and severe cases for whom COVID-19 has not been confirmed because of the lack of available testing (these will be listed as unconfirmed in the questionnaire).
This case report form should be completed after the patient has had COVID-19 for a long enough duration to experience partial or complete recovery, hospitalization or death.
Here’s a reminder on other COVID-19 registries available to GIs.
Surveillance Epidemiology of Coronavirus Under Research Exclusion (SECURE) registries:
- SECURE-IBD registry
- SECURE-Cirrhosis registry
- COVID-HEP (European counterpart to SECURE-Cirrhosis)
