A summary of the GINI study
The GINI study is a prospective, double-blind, randomised intervention trial of 2,252 infants at high risk of allergy. It was designed to assess the preventive effect of differently hydrolysed formulas compared with cows’ milk formula against allergy development. To date the infants were followed up at 1, 3, 6 and 10 years.
We’ve developed a summary of the GINI study in order to highlight the key outcomes from the trial publications that highlight the role of partially hydrolysed cows’ milk formula in the prevention of allergy in infants – it is available for download here:
