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
Being able to participate in the COPD research study has been a life changing event for me.  This is an ongoing positive experience that has already made major differences in my health and the quality of my life. 
 
At the initial interview I was met by a team of friendly, caring, extremely knowledgeable and professional staff.  The high level of care and concern extended to me by the research doctor and everyone involved in this research study is phenomenal.  The research coordinator who I’ve been assigned to is simply “The Best”.  She answers and explains every question I have, she listens when I am having problems with my COPD, and offers helpful suggestions to get me through the rough spots.  She cheers me on when I need it most and follows up with phone calls to make certain I’m ok afterwards.
 
I’m amazed with the positive changes in my health from the first month of my participation. To cough is a rare occurrence where previously it was chronic…all day, every day.   Just walking short distances would render me breathless.  I now can walk longer, do more physically, and breathe much better.  I’m also not so tired all the time.  What a welcome change!
 
I’m happier, less fearful, and more confident in coping with COPD as a result of this research program.  If my participation can contribute to helping others cope with COPD that would be the absolutely ultimate outcome for me.  Thank you for allowing me this opportunity.
