Clinical Data and Innovation

    Our goal is never to replace human milk, but to model the best evidence we have for infants needing nutrition

    Mead Johnson believes that good nutrition early in life supports lifelong health; that’s why we’ve established the Mead Johnson Pediatric Institute—to advance and apply science that helps every child reach their full potential.

    Recent clinical study has shown that we can help infants with cow’s milk allergy (CMA) develop fewer future allergies*

    Babies living with CMA today have a greater likelihood of experiencing other allergies tomorrow. Early detection and management that supports gut health can help to reduce the incidence of other allergies as they grow.

    Take a closer look at our CMA research.

    *Published study showing fewer incidences of asthma, rhinoconjunctivitis, urticaria, and eczema at 3 years in infants with CMA compared to Nutramigen without LGG. Feeding began at 4 months of age or older in the study.

    Mead Johnson Pediatric Nutrition Institute (MJPNI) and the Global Exploration of Human Milk Study

    MJPNI is a key collaborator on one of the largest global studies ever conducted to evaluate human milk over the first year of lactation. The study provides an understanding of mother’s milk nutrient composition globally, examining the influence of diet, genetics, and geography. 

    This global understanding gives Mead Johnson the unique ability to craft innovations inspired by human milk that matter.

    Solution-driven research for babies in need of digestive support

    Babies can experience a range of digestion issues with perceived stooling issues accounting for approximately 25% of all pediatric gastroenterology visits. These needs sparked the research and development of several Mead Johnson innovations, including our Natural Defense® Dual Prebiotic Blend.

    Growth, development, and immune support inspired by breast milk

    Mead Johnson was the first to have DHA in formulas within the range fund in human milk worldwide. Since then, studies have included MFGM, Inositol, ARA—all key components of breast milk shown to support cognitive development, immune health, and other growth and development.
