Abstract

Exclusive enteral nutrition is an effective therapy for the management of active Crohn's disease, especially in children and adolescents. This therapeutic approach involves the use of a liquid nutritional product with the exclusion of normal diet for a period of many weeks. Although recent studies have helped to delineate some aspects of how exclusive enteral nutrition should be used, there remain many gaps in our understanding. In addition, several recent reports have provided intriguing insights into the mechanisms of this nutritional approach.
