ARC Clinical Research at Wilson Parke is running an Infant Formula Study. The purpose of this study is to compare the growth and tolerance of infants fed an experimental milk-based infant formula with added carbohydrates, called human milk oligosaccharides, with the growth and tolerance of infants fed a milk-based infant formula without the added human milk oligosaccharides or with infants fed human milk. Human milk oligosaccharides are naturally found in human milk and are associated with health benefits, such as reduced rates of respiratory and gastrointestinal (GI) illnesses. The addition of these carbohydrates to infant formula may provide health benefits to babies that are not fed human milk.
We are looking for infants between 0-14 days old who are either exclusively breastfed or infants that are exclusively formula fed after being discharged from the hospital following their birth. ARC will cover the cost of all visits and study formula involved.
What to Expect:
- You will be asked to come into our research clinic 7 times and will receive up to $350 of compensation for time and travel.
- Your child’s health as it relates to this study, will be evaluated at each appointment by our research coordinator and study doctor.
- All study procedures and formula will be at no cost to you or your insurance.
- Our study team can coordinate with your child’s primary physician to help them receive the most individualized care from our whole ARC team.
