Nutrition Sufficiency, Allergy Efficacy and Safety of Neocate Jr in Children With Food Protein Allergy

Study Purpose

The main purpose of this study is to evaluate efficacy and safety of an amino acid-based formula Neocate Jr in children with food protein allergy, and to evaluate nutrition sufficiency of Neocate Jr in 1 to 10 years old children with food protein allergy.

Recruitment Criteria

Accepts Healthy Volunteers

Healthy volunteers are participants who do not have a disease or condition, or related conditions or symptoms

Study Type

An interventional clinical study is where participants are assigned to receive one or more interventions (or no intervention) so that researchers can evaluate the effects of the interventions on biomedical or health-related outcomes.

An observational clinical study is where participants identified as belonging to study groups are assessed for biomedical or health outcomes.

Searching Both is inclusive of interventional and observational studies.

Eligible Ages 1 Year - 10 Years
Gender All

Trial Details

Trial ID:

This trial id was obtained from ClinicalTrials.gov, a service of the U.S. National Institutes of Health, providing information on publicly and privately supported clinical studies of human participants with locations in all 50 States and in 196 countries.


Phase 1: Studies that emphasize safety and how the drug is metabolized and excreted in humans.

Phase 2: Studies that gather preliminary data on effectiveness (whether the drug works in people who have a certain disease or condition) and additional safety data.

Phase 3: Studies that gather more information about safety and effectiveness by studying different populations and different dosages and by using the drug in combination with other drugs.

Phase 4: Studies occurring after FDA has approved a drug for marketing, efficacy, or optimal use.

Food Allergy in Children, Cow Milk Allergy
Additional Details

This is an open, self-controlled multi-center clinical study. Target population is 1~10 years old children allergic to cow's milk and/or food protein, confirmed by pediatrician. The study plans to recruit about 50 subjects to have an intervention period of 4 weeks. Data will be collected at baseline, week 1, 2 and 4. The hypothesis is that the amino acid formula (Neocate Jr) is effective in relieving food protein allergy symptoms, and meanwhile supporting normal growth in children with food protein allergy. Efficacy parameters are the the improvement of food protein allergy symptoms (SCORAD score, serum IgE), growth and development index (weight, height, weight for height), and nutrition related labs (such as hemoglobin, total blood protein, albumin, pre-albumin).

Arms & Interventions


Experimental: children with food protein allergy


Dietary Supplement: - Amino acid formula (Neocate Jr)

Use Neocate Jr for 4 weeks, either as sole source of nutrition or oral nutritional supplement: Sole source of nutrition: as far as possible >7 days, especially newly diagnosed allergy children Oral nutritional supplement (Neocate Jr ≥50% of daily total energy and the rest provided by food)
