Jul 2016 Diet for Induction and Maintenance of Remission and Re-biosis in Crohn's Disease (DIETOMICS-CD) Interventional CDED, EEN, PEN Prof. Arie Levine The modified-Exclusive Enteral Nutrition (mEEN) is an open label randomized controlled pilot trial in mild to severe Crohn's Disease patients. The purpose of this study is to determine whether induction of remission and maintenance of remission can be achieved with a new dietary strategy that involves only 2 weeks of Exclusive Enteral Nutrition (EEN) with Modulen followed by an exclusion diet involving selected table foods, coupled with partial enteral nutrition for 24 weeks. This novel approach will be compared to the gold standard dietary regime involving 8 weeks of EEN followed by PEN with free diet. N=76
