Formula Study

Now Open in Macon, GA; Baton Rouge, LA; and Hastings, NE

Meridian is conducting a clinical research study for infant formula. In the study, some infants may be eligible to receive an investigational milk-based formula. In part, this study is to research how very fussy and extremely fussy infants respond to an investigational milk-based formula with oligosaccharides. Human milk oligosaccharides are provided to infants through human milk, and are associated with health benefits.
