Recent developments in mucosal immunology and the role of nutrition.
Compared to patients fed parenterally, enteral feeding dramatically lowers the incidence of pneumonia, according to a sizable body of clinical data. The shared mucosal immune theory proposes a relationship between the respiratory and gastrointestinal tracts in terms of immunology. According to this theory, cells in the small intestine's Peyer's patches become sensitive before being dispersed to submucosal areas in both intestinal and extra intestinal places. This system is incredibly sensitive to the source and kind of food.Author(s): Mateu Leo
