Abstract: Inflammatory bowel diseases is a group of chronic and recurrent inflammatory disorders that occur in the intestine. Traditional drug therapy can relieve clinical symptoms, but may cause some side effects. Bioactive egg components are one of the hot research topics in the field of food science nowadays. Anti-bacterial, anti-viral, anti-hypertensive, anti-oxidative, anti-inflammatory and immunoregulatory activities of bioactive egg components have been confirmed. The development and application of biological egg components is expected to open new therapeutic strategies for inflammatory bowel disease. In this paper, we review recent advances in understanding the anti-inflammatory activity of egg derived amino acids, peptides, proteins and lipids, as well as the molecular mechanisms for the alleviation of inflammatory bowel disease by these bioactive components. Furthermore, potential directions for future research are discussed. The aim of this review is to provide a basis for further study and application of biological egg components.

Key words: biological egg components, inflammatory bowel disease, anti-inflammation mechanism
