Abstract

Immune-enhancing diets are nutritionally complete enteral nutrition formulations that contain supplemental doses of arginine, glutamine, omega-3 fatty acids, nucleotides, and beta carotene. The components in these formulations have been demonstrated to stimulate immune function and down-regulate the stress response to injury and infection. There are now sufficient data to demonstrate improved clinical outcomes in patients who receive these products in the post-injury period of multiple trauma or post-surgical period following gastrointestinal cancer resection.
