Clinical Trial Summary

This is a randomized controlled trial with infants less than 34 weeks and between 1000 and 2000 grams at birth, that seeks to establish the safety and effectiveness of fast enteral advancement (milk 30-40 cc/kg/d) compared with traditional advancement (milk 20 cc/kg/d)

Clinical Trial Description

Progression of enteral feeding in preterm infants is still controversial. The neonatologist needs to provide adequate caloric intake avoiding the risk of food intolerance and necrotizing enterocolitis.

Objective: To establish the safety and effectiveness of fast enteral advancement compared with traditional advancement.

Design: A randomized controlled clinical trial with infants less than 34 weeks and between 1000 and 2000 grams at birth conducted at Hospital Universitario San Ignacio in Bogotá, Colombia.

Methods: 30 cc versus 20 cc / kg / day advancing in infants between 1000 and 1499g and 40cc versus 20 cc / kg / day advancing in infants between 1500 and 1999g.

Outcomes: days to reach full enteral nutrition, days of parenteral nutrition (PN) and/or intravenous fluids (IVF), days to regain birth weight, episodes of food intolerance, anthropometric measurements and weight gain at 40 weeks; rate of late onset sepsis, hypoglycemia, hyperbilirubinemia, necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC) and mortality. Data will be analyzed with Student t test or Mann-Whitney U-test and Pearson Chi-square or Fisher test. Multiple linear regression will be performed.

Ethics: This Protocol was approved by the Ethics and Research Committee of Pontificia Universidad Javeriana and San Ignacio Hospital. Informed consent will be requested to parents. ;
