Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Nutrition, often along with physical activity, is by now acknowledged as a cornerstone in the prevention and even more so the treatment of many diseases. Indeed, food and nutritional intake by now often thought to be the main source of wellbeing sometimes over- but also underestimating the impact of nutritional intake, dietary pattern and food-derived natural compounds in their impact on human health. In this Special Issue entitled `Clinical Nutrition: Recent Advances and Remaining Challenges´ we will provide a broad overview and summary on recent findings in various fields of clinical nutrition with special focus on chronic and degenerative diseases like metabolic diseases, cancers, neurodegenerative diseases, inflammatory bowel diseases, sarcopenia but also malnutrition in elderly, infants and children. The reviews presented should aim to provide an overview on recent developments in the different field of clinical nutrition and will be of special interest to health professionals including nurses, dietitians, physicians, and other practitioners as well as basic scientists working in different settings of clinical nutrition.
