Scientists from the fields of biochemistry, body composition, intensive care, medicine, nutrition, pediatrics, physiology, and surgery provided the 17 papers that were first presented at the 2001 workshop (exact date not noted). They discuss the administration of nutritional support, in particular, the questions of timing, composition, and clinical settings of such support in light of emerging evidence about the immunomodulatory effects of specific nutrients and their influence on the inflammatory response. Specific topics include fatty acids and gene expression related to inflammation, intravenous supply of functional lipid components, the contribution of trace elements to the efficacy of nutritional support, and signaling factors for gut adaptation.
