Major advances in the understanding of the aetio‐pathogenesis and genetics of inflammatory bowel disease have been accompanied by an escalation in the sophistication of immunomodulatory inflammatory bowel disease therapeutics. However, the basic ‘triple’ therapy (5‐aminosalicylates, corticosteroids, azathioprine) and nutrition have maintained their central role in the management of patients with inflammatory bowel disease over recent decades. 
Infliximab reverses growth hormone resistance associated with inflammatory bowel disease
This work has shown that inflammation plays a major role in the aetiology of catabolism and wasting observed in inflammatory bowel disease via growth hormone resistance and will help clarify the role of EMT in this disease.
New nutritional approach to inflammatory bowel disease: the nutraceuticals
A high compliance and a statistically significant improvement of symptoms, nutritional status, inflammatory index and Crohn’s disease activity index are observed among enteral formula enriched in specific nutraceuticals used in IBD.
Nutritional Aspects in Inflammatory Bowel Diseases
The nutritional assessment for inflammatory bowel disease patients should include a dietetic evaluation with the assessment of daily caloric intake and energy expenditure, radiological assessment, and measurement of functional capacity.
Nutritional Therapy for Inflammatory Bowel Disease
This work predominantly concentrate on nutritional status and nutritional intervention in patients with inflammatory bowel disease, and the use of specific dietary compounds with anti-inflammatory properties, known as pharmaconutrition, are presented.
Standards of medical treatment and nutrition in Crohn’s disease
The focus will be on clinically relevant situations providing therapeutic algorithms according to international guidelines for Crohn’s disease, and the ability to define subgroups with distinct characteristics is defined.
Advances in Nutrition of Patients with Inflammatory Bowel Diseases
The present paper is to present simply review and analyse of recent reports regarding nutrition in patients with CD and UC as well as to discuss recommended nutritional management in certain IBD course-associated conditions.
Dietary Management in Pediatric Patients with Crohn’s Disease
A synopsis of the available nutritional strategies in the management of pediatric CD is provided and their application in the dietary management of these patients is discussed.
Enteral nutrition decreases hospitalization rate in patients with Crohn's disease
Enteral nutrition with an elemental diet plays an important role in the treatment for CD patients in Japan, because of its few adverse effects, and is thought to be effective in maintaining remission.
