Clinical Trials

Infant Formula for Fussy Babies

Posted on 9/10/2021

The purpose of this study is to assess the effects of partially hydrolyzed whey protein-based infant formula with human milk oligosaccharides (HMO) on symptoms of formula intolerance including fussiness, crying, gassiness, spit-up, diarrhea, and constipation in healthy, term infants.

HMOs are carbohydrates that are naturally found in human break milk and there are health benefits associated to HMOs.

If your infant is exclusively formula fed, you will be asked to switch to the study formula.

The study will last about 1 month and will include 3 visits to the research clinic. 

Your baby may qualify if he/she
  • is between 7 and 42 days of age at the time of enrollment
  • is a singleton from a full-term birth with a gestational age of 37-42 weeks
  • birth weight was at least 5 lbs. 8 oz.
  • is identified by parents as very fussy or extremely fussy on current formula and is exclusively formula fed

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

If you qualify and decide to participate you will be compensated for your time and travel while participating in the study.  

You will receive $60 for each study visit.

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."
