BENGMARK, Stig. Modulation by enteral nutrition of the acute phase response and immune functions. Nutr. Hosp. [online]. 2003, vol.18, n.1, pp.1-5. ISSN 1699-5198.

To use nutrition in order to limit the negative consequences of physical and mental stress is not new. Recent advances in immunology and particularly in the understanding of the chemical language used to communicate both by eukarytic and prokarotic cells has made it easier to objectively evaluate effects of various immunomodulating efforts including the use of nutrients, vitamins and antioxidants in preventing or limiting the development of disease and its late consequences.

Keywords : Acute phase response; Enteral nutrition; Immune system.
