The American Gastroenterological Association's official journal Gastroenterology has released a special issue focused on food, the immune system and the gastrointestinal tract.
"This special issue provides a tour de force of biological and clinical data regarding how food impacts health and disease," said Douglas A. Corley, MD, PhD, MPH, and Detlef Schuppan, MD, PhD, guest editors for this special issue. "We hope this will inform future research by identifying gaps in knowledge, while providing patients and clinicians with evidence-based summaries to guide clinical recommendations."
The key topics covered in this special 13th issue include:
• Food and the microbiome
• Food allergies
• Eosinophilic esophagitis
• Food and functional bowel disease
• Celiac disease
• Nonceliac gluten sensitivity
• Food and the brain
• Nutrients and gastrointestinal malignancies
