Severe and Enduring Anorexia Nervosa (SE-AN) and related disorders

This special issue published in Journal of Eating Disorders is dedicated to those patients with severe and enduring anorexia nervosa (SE-AN), and those with related disorders. It is hoped that such a special issue focusing entirely upon those with a persistent eating disorder will not only draw attention to this long-suffering group, but also generate new avenues of exploration as well. There is now more than ever before a compelling need to bring new ideas and emerging data to the fore in a timely fashion so that replication of the most promising new data can occur and the ethical considerations be widely debated. Papers for this special issues will be considered that address all aspects of SE-AN and related disorders, including basic science, epidemiology, classification, treatment, prevention, course and outcomes and ethical considerations.
