Research Summary: Neonatal sepsis is a worldwide public health problem, with higher incidence in the developing world. Despite advances in diagnosis and treatment, infections in the neonatal period remain a major cause of death in newborns. Lactoferrin (LF), a milk glycoprotein with anti-inflammatory, immunomodulatory and antimicrobial properties, has the potential to prevent infections in young children. Dr. Keith Barrington,  and his team, performed a Phase II clinical trial in neonates with AOR providing the clinical trial material.

SF Summarization: This study tested the effects of Lactoferrin, a milk glycoprotein with anti-inflammatory, immunomodulatory and antimicrobial properties, as a treatment for neonatal sepsis.

Current Status: Completed

Stage: Clinical study
