Clinical Trials on Disease-Specific Enteral Foods

This chapter describes the clinical trial conducted to evaluate the acceptability, tolerance, and efficacy of the disease-specific enteral food for burn patients (DEF-BP), developed from natural food sources in the present study.

Disease-specific enteral foods are developed to meet the unique nutritional needs of patients suffering from specific diseases such as celiac diseases, liver diseases, kidney diseases, and burn injury, among others. The rationale for developing disease-specific enteral formulae is that standard enteral formula may not be suitable to provide optimal nutritional support to all kinds of patients.
