Effective first-line option for cow’s milk allergy that has proven clinical benefits beyond symptom relief

Cow’s milk allergy (CMA) is the most common food allergy in childhood with an estimated annual prevalence of 2–7.5% in infants.1 Guidelines for managing bottle-fed infants with CMA recommend the use of substitutive hypo-allergenic formulas.1,2 Clinical guidelines recommend extensively hydrolysed formula (eHF) first-line for mild-to-moderate CMA which is suitable in 90% of infants.2,3

The clinical benefits of probiotics are dependant on strain specificity.4 The unique combination of extensively hydrolysed casein formula (eHCF) and Lactobacillus rhamnosus GG (LGG®) probiotic in Nutramigen with LGG® modifies the gut microbiome which can provide clinical benefits in the short, medium and long term.4‑9

Nutramigen with LGG® accelerated return to cow’s milk5

Nutramigen with LGG® not only provides fast and effective symptom relief, but also accelerates return to milk (oral tolerance acquisition).

Studies have clinically proven that Nutramigen with LGG® resulted in faster return to milk than other formulas resulting in ~80% of infants returning to cow’s milk after 12 months of use.4,5

A faster return to cow’s milk could also provide cost effectiveness to the NHS.12

Reduction in future allergic manifestations

Nutramigen with LGG® reduced the incidence of future allergic manifestations9

Children with CMA have an increased risk of developing allergic manifestation such as eczema, asthma, urticaria or rhinoconjunctivitis.9

A study found that infants using Nutramigen with LGG® compared to eHCF alone reduced the incidence of 1 or more allergic manifestations by ~50% during a 3 year period.9

Reducing the incidence of future allergic manifestations can improve patient outcomes and reduce the NHS cost of patient management.12
