Details and patient eligibility


By conducting a randomized controlled study of the role of enteral nutrition biscuits in the induction of remission in moderate-to-severe Crohn's disease, we will evaluate to investigate the role of enteral nutrition biscuits in the induction and remission phases of moderate-to-severe Crohn's disease; to assess patient adherence to enteral nutrition biscuits and the timing of their application; to assess the role of enteral nutrition biscuits in biologically refractory patients; and to assess the role of enteral nutrition biscuits in the remission of perianal, small bowel, and colonic lesions.

Full description

This project is a randomized controlled study evaluating the effects of enteral nutrition biscuits during the induction and remission phases of moderate to severe Crohn's disease. The study subjects were patients with moderate to severe Crohn's disease, and the control group received conventional treatment with existing drugs; The experimental group added oral enteral nutrition biscuits to intervene on the basis of existing drugs. Evaluate the clinical response rates of patients at 2, 4, 8, 12, and 24 weeks after intervention; Nutritional status before and after intervention, incidence and severity of perianal lesions, and remission rate of small intestine and colon lesions.
