abstract

  • Enteral nutrition is an established therapeutic option in the treatment of patients with Crohn disease. The mode of action for enteral nutrition remains unknown but research efforts have begun to elucidate the complex interaction between nutritional luminal contents, intestinal epithelium, and mucosal immune response. Trials of novel enteral diet formulations have been conducted to explore the antiinflammatory role of specific nutrients.
