Case Studies

  • Research Abstract: Fiber & nutrition in children with food allergies

    This abstract describes research into the nutrient intake, nutrient status, and growth of children with multiple food allergies who need supplemental formula. These data add to the understanding of the nutritional status of children with multiple food allergies who need amino acid-based formula.

  • Research Evidence Booklet

    This manuscript contains a selection of the scientific evidence and clinical research behind Neocate. Since its launch in the 1980’s Neocate has developed along with our increasing understanding of food allergies and other complex gastro-enteropathies. Its successful use in multiple conditions in infancy has led to the development of an age-adapted range to meet the needs of growing children (from infancy through childhood and beyond).

  • UPDATE: Extended clinical data showing the impact of an amino acid-based formula with synbiotics on the gut microbiota of cow milk-allergic infants

    This document describes a multi-site clinical trial with the primary outcome assessing the impact of a novel amino acid-based formula containing a synbiotic blend of prebiotics and probiotics on the gut microbiota in infants with cow milk allergy, compared to a reference group of healthy infants.

  • Infant with poor weight gain, gastroesophageal reflux, fussiness, and sleep disturbances

    This case study, by Eric Ball, MD, FAAP, describes the dietary management of an infant with Food Protein-induced Enterocolitis Syndrome (FPIES). It highlights the role of an amino acid-based infant formula with pre- and probiotics, Neocate® Syneo® Infant, in the successful nutrition management and catch-up growth.

  • Research Abstract: Impacts of an amino acid-based formula with synbiotics on the gut microbiota of cow milk-allergic infants

    This abstract describes a multi-site clinical trial with a novel amino acid-based formula containing a synbiotic blend of prebiotics and probiotics. The primary outcome of this research was the gut microbiota infants with cow milk allergy, compared to a reference group of healthy infants.

  • Clinical case studies to support the use of Neocate Splash in the dietary management of MFA, EoE, and FPIES

    This case study booklet was designed to expose healthcare professionals to 4 real patient cases that focus on food allergy-related medical conditions and nutritional issues and how they were managed. It is our hope that the management solutions and corresponding outcomes demonstrated in these cases will assist other healthcare professionals when managing their patients diagnosed with multiple food allergies, eosinophilic esophagitis and food protein-induced enterocolitis syndrome.

  • Infant with Severe Atopic Dermatitis, Multiple Food Allergies, Growth Failure and Loose Stools

    This case study, by Raquel Durban, MS, RD, CSP, LDN, describes the dietary management of an infant with multiple symptoms of food allergies. It highlights the role of an amino acid-based infant formula with pre- and probiotics, Neocate® Syneo® Infant, in the successful nutrition management, catch-up growth, and improved quality of life for the family.

  • Research Abstract: An amino acid-based formula with synbiotics is hypoallergenic and supports normal growth

    This abstract describes two multi-site clinical studies conducted in the United States with a novel amino acid-based formula containing a synbiotic blend of prebiotics and probiotics. The first study explored growth of healthy infants, and the second study evaluated the hypoallergenicity of this formula in subjects with cow milk allergy.

  • Research Abstract: An amino acid-based formula with synbiotics supports normal growth in cow milk-allergic infants

    This abstract describes a multi-site clinical trial conducted in the United States with a novel amino acid-based formula containing a synbiotic blend of prebiotics and probiotics. The primary outcome of this research was growth of infants with cow milk allergy, and secondary outcomes included allergic signs and symptoms.

  • Nutrition Management of an Adult with EoE and EoG

    This case study, by Bethany Doerfler MS RD LDN, describes the medical and nutrition management of an adult male with EoE and EoG. It highlights the role of amino acid based products, Neocate’s Splash and the Complete Amino Acid Mix in the successful nutrition management of this patient.

  • Development Mealtime Dynamics & Nutrition: Making the Case for Neocate Nutra

    These two case studies, by Angela Haas, MA, CCC-SLP, describe the nutrition and medical management of 2 young patients with food allergy related conditions. The first patient is a 7 month old boy, diagnosed with EoE. and who has a history of intolerance to several milk and soy based formulas. His symptoms include vomiting, poor growth, poor feeding transition to solids, asthma and eczema. The second patient is a 4 year old girl with a history of severe eczema, multiple food allergies, asthma and allergic rhinitis . Both case studies highlight the role of Neocate Nutra, an amino acid based semi-solid medical food, in the successful management of the patients. Angela Haas is a Pediatric Feeding and Swallowing Specialist at a Children’s Hospital. She has 20 years experience evaluating and treating children with feeding and swallowing difficulties. She has also conducted research in the areas of feeding, swallowing, mealtime dynamics, gastrointestinal dysfunction and food allergies.
