This study aims to compare the outcomes of very preterm infants pre- and post-implementation of a probiotic protocol using Lactobacillus reuteri with the goal to reduce the incidence of necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC) and improve feeding outcomes. There is currently debate among neonatologists on whether the practice is both feasible and safe, and this study aimes to prove that the practice is not only feasible and safe but also beneficial. This research was conducted for BIO 421 in Dr. Amy Hair's Lab at Texas Children's Hospital.
