The burden of disease experienced by severely malnourished infants is significant in low-income countries. Gut dysbiosis, an imbalance in microbial composition, is thought to play a role in nutrient malabsorption, leading to underweight infants and failure to thrive. Supplementation with B. infantis strain has been shown to colonize the gut and is associated with significant changes to fecal microbiome composition in healthy breastfed infants. This is a clinical trial to demonstrate increased weight gain with B.infantis supplementation in underweight infants (WAZ<-2).
