Hypereosinophilic syndrome (HES) is a group of rare blood disorders characterized by an overproduction of eosinophils, a type of white blood cell, that build up in various tissues such as the skin, heart, lungs and intestines and can cause inflammation and damage. The NATRON clinical study is researching an investigational drug for hypereosinophilic syndrome (HES) to determine if it helps to control HES when added to standard of care medications.

Participants must be 12 years or older.
