A novel partial-enteral nutrition protocol to improve nutrition status of adult patients experiencing a Crohn's disease flare and starting new immunologic therapy


The purpose of this study is to evaluate if a partial enteral nutrition diet, with a pea protein plant-based oral nutrition supplement (ONS; Kate Farms Peptide 1.5), combined with the Inflammatory bowel disease - Anti-Inflammatory Diet (IBD-AID) improves the nutritional intake of adult patients experiencing a CD flare initiating immunologic therapy compared to standard of care. Standard of care for patients experiencing a CD flare is commonly characterized by prescription of a low fiber diet and either lack of oral nutrition supplementation or use of an animal protein based supplement.
