Clinical Trials

Evaluation of growth, safety, and efficacy of an infant formula for healthy term infants

Posted on 1/7/2020
This infant formula is being tested to demonstrate that it meets nutritional requirements and supports appropriate growth of healthy term infants.  The primary objective is to compare the growth (weight, length, head circumference, etc...) of infants randomized to the study formula versus growth of infants randomized to a standard commercial infant formula.

The study will last approximately 6 months.  You and your infant will have 8 visits to the clinic and 4 phone contacts.  Your baby will be weighed and measured at each visit.  At 2 separate visits there will be a required heel stick from your baby for a blood sample.  

Your baby may qualify if he/she:
  • is healthy, term (no less than 37 weeks, 0 days and no greater than 42 weeks, 0 days), singleton infant
  • has a birth weight of at least 5 lbs 8 oz
  • 0-14 days of age at the time of enrollment
  • is exclusively consuming and tolerating a cow's milk infant formula

There will be no charge for participating in the study.  The study formula, study materials and study specific visits will be provided at no charge to you or your insurance company. 

You will also receive compensation for your time and travel.  You will receive up to $600 if you and your baby complete all visits.

What Our Research Patients are Saying
"I was on edge when I first went to DCOL Research because of the sensitive nature of my diagnosis. Upon arrival to the research office I was treated very kindly and professionally as soon as I signed in. The Research Coordinator was friendly and compassionate and made me feel at ease. I was informed about the trial and they ensured that I had a clear understanding of the information. During all my visits I felt at ease and informed. The Research Coordinator is very professional as is the Lab Coordinator. It is always a smooth process and the staff is confident and friendly. The study doctor is also helpful and always asks if I have any problems or concerns, just like the staff."
