Details and patient eligibility

About

The investigators hypothesize that children receiving human milk will maintain a greater diversity of helpful bacteria in their gut and have lower levels of inflammatory proteins in the blood compared with children not receiving human milk.

Full description

The investigators hypothesize that the gut microbiota during bone marrow transplant could be influenced by administration of enteral donor breast milk. This study will attempt to address this hypothesis, by feeding donor breast milk to young children undergoing transplant, and serially comparing the gut microbiota in children receiving human milk, with those receiving conventional feeding.

42 participants in 2 patient groups

Enteral Donor Breastmilk
Experimental group
Description:
Donor milk will be pasteurized prior to use. Given orally or by nasogastric (NG) or nasojejunal (NJ) tube. Feeding will be supervised and will be advanced as quickly as tolerated with a goal of providing 40-50% of nutritional needs from the donor milk. It is recognized that the volume of enteral feeds will need to be adjusted per patient tolerance.
Treatment:
Dietary Supplement: Breastmilk
Control
No Intervention group
Description:
• Children randomized to the control arm will receive standard enteral or parenteral nutrition per standard clinical practice, supervised by a registered dietician.
