An Elimination Diet Using a New Amino Acid Based Formula: Immunological and Clinical Effects in Cow's Milk Allergy

2014-08-27 03:14:12 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purpose of this study is to evaluate whether a new version of an amino acid based formula improves tolerance to milk in cow's milk allergic infants/young children.

Description

Infants with CMA cannot tolerate proteins contained in milk, although they are able to tolerate amino acids which are the 'building blocks' of proteins. Unlike standard infant formulas which are made from milk proteins, amino acid formulas (AAF) are made from nonallergenic aminoacids plus all the other nutrients required to support growth and development.
