Diet plays an important role in the treatment and management of inflammatory conditions. Different food components have been associated to symptomatic and immune reaction and play a crucial role in the pathogenesis of chronic inflammatory conditions. Both basic and clinical research studies have shown the effect of dietary triggers of immune reaction, changes in intestinal microbiome, as well as alterations of mucosal integrity. The benefit of dietary therapies is not only in correcting nutrient deficiencies but also in improving disease activity and contributes to symptoms control. However, there are still many unknown areas in the relationship between diet and inflammation.
In this Special Issue, we will provide information on recent advances in dietary therapies for chronic inflammation, with special focus on gastrointestinal conditions.
