Necrotising enterocolitis (NEC) continues to be a major cause of neonatal mortality and morbidity. It is less common in breastfed infants suggesting a protective role for breast milk. However NEC is now being seen in fully breast milk fed infants following introduction of fortifiers derived from bovine milk, which suggests a possible causative role for bovine products. This study investigates the relationship between the commencement of feed containing bovine milk products and the development of surgical NEC in preterm infants.

Abstract

Necrotising enterocolitis (NEC) continues to be a major cause of neonatal mortality and morbidity. It is less common in breastfed infants suggesting a protective role for breast milk. However NEC is now being seen in fully breast milk fed infants following introduction of fortifiers derived from bovine milk, which suggests a possible causative role for bovine products. This study investigates the relationship between the commencement of feed containing bovine milk products and the development of surgical NEC in preterm infants.
