Has anyone found further details on this IBD-AID named in the much talked about study from UMASS?

I cant find much other than what is on here:


It's very vague about the diet.

already a thread.....

The results from the study were that 100% of participants had some improvement, no one had 100% improvement.
I listened to an interview with one of the authors and the diet was loosely based on SCD, gluten free grains were allowed – oats and white rice were allowed for example (don't know how much).
Diets were tailored to the individuals

I don't think the complete study with results have been published yet, I've been searching.

My son (who has Crohn's) and I met with a nutritionist on Friday and it sounds like they still haven't published. I think one of the things she said (we were also discussing the SCD, low FODMAP and Paleo diets) is that they use pre-biotics (as well as probiotics).

I just found this list of recipes too:

An anti-inflammatory diet as treatment for inflammatory bowel disease: a case series report

The Anti-Inflammatory Diet (IBD-AID) is a nutritional regimen for inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) that restricts the intake of certain carbohydrates, includes the ingestion of pre- and probiotic foods, and modifies dietary fatty acids to demonstrate the potential of an adjunct dietary therapy for the treatment of IBD.

Forty patients with IBD were consecutively offered the IBD-AID to help treat their disease, and were retrospectively reviewed. Medical records of 11 of those patients underwent further review to determine changes in the Harvey Bradshaw Index (HBI) or Modified Truelove and Witts Severity Index (MTLWSI), before and after the diet.

Of the 40 patients with IBD, 13 patients chose not to attempt the diet (33%). Twenty-four patients had either a good or very good response after reaching compliance (60%), and 3 patients’ results were mixed (7%). Of those 11 adult patients who underwent further medical record review, 8 with CD, and 3 with UC, the age range was 19–70 years, and they followed the diet for 4 or more weeks. After following the IBD-AID, all (100%) patients were able to discontinue at least one of their prior IBD medications, and all patients had symptom reduction including bowel frequency. The mean baseline HBI was 11 (range 1–20), and the mean follow-up score was 1.5 (range 0–3). The mean baseline MTLWSI was 7 (range 6–8), and the mean follow-up score was 0. The average decrease in the HBI was 9.5 and the average decrease in the MTLWSI was 7.

This case series indicates potential for the IBD-AID as an adjunct dietary therapy for the treatment of IBD. A randomized clinical trial is warranted.

Symptoms from the age of 12. Mis-diagnosed with UC at the age of 13, and later diagnosed with Crohn's in January 2012 at 24 years old. Disease mainly in terminal ileum.

Current meds:
Azathioprine, Allopurinol, Calcichew D3-Forte, Fortijuice, Alendronic acid, Ranitidine

Previous meds:
Augmentin, Doxycycline, Lansoprazole, Asacol, Pentasa, Prednisolone, Entocort, Cipro, Flagyl, Elemental Extra 028

Here's a follow-up report on this talking about looking into how this diet alters the subject's microbiome.


And here's the study report, including methods which lays out the diet.
