Jun 2015 Exclusive Enteral Nutrition in Children with Crohn’s Disease EEN Day AS and Lopez RN Exclusive enteral nutrition involves the use of a complete liquid diet, with the exclusion of normal dietary components for a defined period of time, as a therapeutic measure to induce remission in active Crohn's disease (CD). This very efficacious approach leads to high rates of remission, especially in children and adolescents newly diagnosed with CD. This intervention also results in mucosal healing, nutritional improvements and enhanced bone health. World J Gastroenterol , 21 (22), 6809-16 2015 Jun 14
May 2015 Diet in the Pathogenesis and Treatment of Inflammatory Bowel Diseases EEN, CDED, SCD Lee D et al We review the roles of diet in the etiology and management of IBD, based on plausible mechanisms and clinical evidence. Researchers have learned much about the effects of diet on the mucosal immune system, epithelial function, and the intestinal microbiome; these findings could have significant practical implications. Controlled studies of patients receiving enteral nutrition and observations made from patients on exclusion diets have shown that components of whole foods can have deleterious effects for patients with IBD. Additionally, studies in animal models suggested that certain nutrients can reduce intestinal inflammation. Gastroenterology , 148 (6), 1087-106 May 2015
Oct 2014 Consensus Guidelines of ECCO/ESPGHAN on the Medical Management of Pediatric Crohn's Disease EEN Ruemmele FM et al The aim was to base on a thorough review of existing evidence a state of the art guidance on the medical treatment and long term management of children and adolescents with CD, with individualized treatment algorithms based on a benefit-risk analysis according to different clinical scenarios. In children and adolescents who did not have finished their growth, exclusive enteral nutrition (EEN) is the induction therapy of first choice due to its excellent safety profile, preferable over corticosteroids, which are equipotential to induce remission.
