BACKGROUND Dietary nucleotides are nonprotein nitrogenous compounds that are thought to be important for growth, repair, and differentiation of the gastrointestinal tract. A higher nucleotide intake may also have favorable effects on the fecal microbial composition and incidence of diarrhea in infancy. However, few studies have tested this hypothesis with an experimental study design. OBJECTIVE We tested the hypothesis that nucleotide supplementation of infant formula has beneficial effects… CONTINUE READING
