Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) are characterized by chronic inflammation of the gastrointestinal tract, with two main clinical manifestations: Crohn's disease, whose pathogenesis involves any part of the gastrointestinal tract, and ulcerative colitis, in which inflammation is limited to the colon. This gastrointestinal tract inflammation leads to symptoms such as bleeding, abdominal pain, diarrhea, malnutrition, and increased intestinal permeability. Among the factors involved in the pathogenesis of these diseases, genetics, dysregulation in the intestinal microbiota and environmental factors such as diet and physical inactivity stand out. Considering the severity of symptoms related to IBD, alternative therapies have been sought to alleviate intestinal discomfort, and physical exercise, dietary interventions, and nutritional supplements can bring benefits, which include improving the composition of the microbiota, intestinal tract, and its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory action, which may have a protective action on the permeability in the gastrointestinal tract. This Research Topic aims to bring a collection of papers that approach the clinical diagnosis and treatment of IBD. We welcome the submission of manuscripts including, but not limited to, the following topics: Special focus will be given (but is not restricted) to clinical diagnosis of IBD; exercise or nutrition on IBD; microbiota and IBD; body composition on IBD.
