These manifestations include:Skin rashes, for example, urticaria or angioedema, Dizziness, Memory misfortune or disarray, Cough, Shortness of inhale, Fatigue, Fever, Mouth wounds.
The goal of HES treatment is to reduce eosinophil levels in the blood and tissues, thereby preventing tissue damage–especially in the heart. Standard HES treatment includes glucocorticosteroid medications such as prednisone, and chemotherapeutic agents such as hydroxyurea, chlorambucil and vincristine. Interferon-alpha may also be used as a treatment. This medication must be administered by frequent injections. Research is uncovering new treatment therapies for HES.
Patients were negative for the FIP1L1–PDGFRA fusion gene and required prednisone monotherapy, 20 to 60 mg per day, to maintain a stable clinical status and a blood eosinophil count of less than 1000 per microliter. Patients received either intravenous mepolizumab or placebo while the prednisone dose was tapered.
