The Gut Microbiome With Enteral and Parenteral Nutrition

12:15 PM - 2:15 PM


  1. Explain the role of the gut microbiome in animal models of intestinal failure with parenteral nutrition but not enteral nutrient stimulation
  2. Articulate the current understanding of the gut microbiome in inflammatory bowel disease, and recognize the effectiveness of exclusive enteral nutrition, in the context of gut microbiome measures, in inducing remission from pediatric Crohn’s disease
  3. Recognize the role of the microbiome in liver disease and transplantation
  4. Summarize the linkages between diet, the gut microbiome, and obesity
