Exclusive Enteral Nutrition (EEN) is the first-line treatment in children with Crohn’s disease (CD) for induction of remission. However, the mode of action remains conjectural. The aim of this study was to investigate whether the effect of EEN is paralleled by changes in the mucosal cytokine profiles (MCP). Twelve children with new onset inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) received induction treatment with a polymeric EEN. We assessed clinical, endoscopic and histologic scoring before and after EEN. Twelve colonic cytokines were analyzed by Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) in six of the IBD patients at onset and after EEN as well as in six non-IBD control children at the diagnostic colonoscopy. Twelve children completed 6 weeks of EEN, except from one child who completed 4 weeks. At the control colonoscopy, 83% were in complete clinical remission. Changes were found in the MCPs of individual patients after EEN. In particular, children with IBD showed significantly higher values of Interleukin (IL)-12β (p = 0.008) and IL-23α (p = 0.02) compared to non-IBD controls at the diagnostic colonoscopy. Furthermore, an overall change in proinflammatory cytokines was noted in the IBD-group after treatment. Further studies are warranted to understand the role of EEN in MCP.
