A mixture of neutral short chain galactooligosaccharides and long chain fructo-oligosaccharides (scGOS/lcFOS) has been shown to have prebiotic and immunomodulatory effects comparable to human milk oligosaccharides. This can be translated into clinical practice as a potential to prevent infections and allergy. The hypothesis of this study was that this specific prebiotic mixture could have a preventive effect against infections during the first 6 mo of life. In a prospective, randomized, double… Expand
Early dietary intervention with a mixture of prebiotic oligosaccharides reduces the incidence of allergic manifestations and infections during the first two years of life.
TLDR
The observed dual protection lasting beyond the intervention period suggests that an immune modulating effect through the intestinal flora modification may be the principal mechanism of action. Expand
A Specific Prebiotic Mixture Added to Starting Infant Formula Has Long-Lasting Bifidogenic Effects123
TLDR
The data from this small explorative study indicate that early colonization of the intestine might have long-lasting effects on the composition of the intestinal microbiota. Expand
Galacto-Oligosaccharide/Polidextrose Enriched Formula Protects against Respiratory Infections in Infants at High Risk of Atopy: A Randomized Clinical Trial
TLDR
The early administration of PF protects against RIs and mediates a species-specific modulation of the intestinal microbiota, which was associated with atopy protection. Expand
Prebiotic effect during the first year of life in healthy infants fed formula containing GOS as the only prebiotic: a multicentre, randomised, double-blind and placebo-controlled trial
TLDR
The feeding of GOS-containing infant formula produced a definite prebiotic effect consisting of changes in faecal composition and microbiota, and in faechal consistency and the frequency of defaecation. Expand
Effects of Growing-Up Milk Supplemented With Prebiotics and LCPUFAs on Infections in Young Children
TLDR
This is the first study in children to show a reduced risk of infection following consumption of GUM supplemented with scGOS/lcFOS/n-3 LCPUFAs, and borderline statistical significance justifies a new study to confirm this finding. Expand
A formula containing galacto- and fructo-oligosaccharides prevents intestinal and extra-intestinal infections: an observational study.
TLDR
Prebiotic administration reduce intestinal and, possibly, respiratory infections in healthy infants during the first year of age in a prospective, randomized, placebo-controlled, open trial. Expand
Effects of prebiotic-containing infant formula on gastrointestinal tolerance and fecal microbiota in a randomized controlled trial.
TLDR
Infant formula containing the studied oligosaccharides was well tolerated, increased abundance and proportion of bifidobacteria, and reduced fecal pH in healthy infants and prebiotic supplementation did not alter stool patterns, tolerance, or growth. Expand
Effect of Infant and Follow-on Formulas Containing B lactis and Galacto- and Fructo-oligosaccharides on Infection in Healthy Term Infants
TLDR
Formulas containing B lactis + GOS/FOS did not reduce infection rates beyond those containing only B lacti, and other outcomes were not significantly different between groups. Expand
The role of probiotics, prebiotics, and human milk oligosaccharides in infant formulae
TLDR
The results demonstrate that negative immune-related effects of not breast feeding and cesarean delivery can be mitigated by including Bb12 in infant formula and thereby providing infants a safe, dietary, immune-modulating bacterial introduction. Expand
Safety and efficacy of inulin and oligofructose supplementation in infant formula: results from a randomized clinical trial.
TLDR
A 0.8 g/dL SYN1-supplemented infant formula during the first 4 months of life is safe and effective, promoting a gut microbiota closer to that of breastfeeding. Expand

Bifidogenic Effects of Solid Weaning Foods With Added Prebiotic Oligosaccharides: A Randomised Controlled Clinical Trial
TLDR
It is concluded that addition of GOS/FOS to solid foods induces an increase in the faecal proportion of bifidobacteria in the intestinal microbiota of fully formula-fed infants with an established, mixed-type microbiota in the weaning period. Expand

Dosage-Related Bifidogenic Effects of Galacto- and Fructooligosaccharides in Formula-Fed Term Infants
TLDR
Data indicate that supplementation of a term infant's formula with a mixture of galacto- and fructooligosaccharides has a dose-dependent stimulating effect on the growth of Bifidobacteria and Lactobacilli in the intestine and results in softer stool with increasing dosage of supplementation. Expand
Colon Microflora in Infants Fed Formula with Galacto- and Fructo-Oligosaccharides: More Like Breast-Fed Infants
TLDR
The addition of the prebiotic GOS/FOS mixture to an infant formula has a stimulating effect on the growth of bifidobacteria and on the metabolic activity of the total intestinal flora, which represents a fermentation profile closer to that observed in breast-fed infants compared to infants fed control formula.

Prebiotic concept for infant nutrition
In the neonatal period, the intestine is colonised in a stepwise process that depends on mode of delivery, environmental factors, bacterial interactions, and the host itself resulting in aExpand
Supplementation of a bovine milk formula with an oligosaccharide mixture increases counts of faecal bifidobacteria in preterm infants
Background: The establishment of a balanced intestinal microflora which may protect against infection is desirable for the preterm infant. Objective: To investigate the effect of a preterm formulaExpand
Similar bifidogenic effects of prebiotic-supplemented partially hydrolyzed infant formula and breastfeeding on infant gut microbiota.
TLDR
The specific Bifidobacterium microbiota composition of the breast-fed infants was achieved in infants receiving prebiotic supplemented formula, which would suggest that early gut B ifidobacteria microbiota can be modified by special diets up to the age of 6 months. Expand
Randomized Double-Blind Study of the Nutritional Efficacy and Bifidogenicity of a New Infant Formula Containing Partially Hydrolyzed Protein, a High &bgr;-Palmitic Acid Level, and Nondigestible Oligosaccharides
TLDR
The new formula supported satisfactory growth, led to higher counts of bifidobacteria in the feces, produced blood bio-chemical values typical of formula-fed infants, and was well tolerated. Expand
Allergy development and the intestinal microflora during the first year of life.
TLDR
Differences in the composition of the gut flora between infant who will and infants who will not develop allergy are demonstrable before the development of any clinical manifestations of atopy. Expand
Faecal SIgA secretion in infants fed on pre‐ or probiotic infant formula
TLDR
Formula‐fed infants who lack the transfer of protective maternal SIgA from breast milk may benefit from strategies to support maturation of humoral immunity and endogenous production ofSIgA, according to the observed clear tendency to increase faecal SIGA secretion. Expand
