Use of a Liquid Supplement Containing 2 Human Milk Oligosaccharides (HMOs) in Preterm Infants


Brief description of study

This is a prospective, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial in preterm infants conducted at least 4 centers in France, consisting of 2 parallel groups. The experimental group will receive a neonatal supplement containing 2 specific HMOs. The control group will receive a placebo neonatal supplement that does not contain any HMOs, but matched to the experimental product in energy content.

This study will include a total of approximately 160 male and female preterm infants born between 27 and 32 weeks' gestational age with birth weight 1700 g, who are younger than 7 days of age.

The primary objective of the study is to demonstrate the safety and tolerance of HMOs in preterm infants by monitoring weight gain rates in both of the two randomized groups.
