Neocate LCP, Ireland’s No.1 AAF1
Neocate LCP is a hypoallergenic amino acid formula designed to meet the nutritional needs of infants who have Cow’s Milk Allergy (CMA), Multiple Food Protein Allergies (MFPA) or require an amino acid formula from birth.
Neocate LCP can be used as a sole source of nutrition up to the age of 1 year. It can be used in combination with breast milk and/or diet during or after weaning. Neocate LCP is the only AAF with 35 years clinical experience and is the most researched formula available in the Irish market - More publications (>95) support the use of Neocate than any other hypoallergenic amino acid-based product
Neocate LCP provides fast and effective resolution of CMA symptoms in 3 to 14 days2,3. Within 3 days on Neocate, studies showed significant improvement of eczema and disappearance of other symptoms (e.g. vomiting, diarrhoea)2. Within 14 days on Neocate, studies showed resolution of all gastrointestinal symptoms. 100% of infants gained weight whilst receiving the AAF3.
Neocate LCP can resolve symptoms unresolved on an eHF*.4 Up to 10% of infants with uncomplicated CMA and up to 40% of infants with more complex allergy may be intolerant to an eHF.4 AAF formulas were found to be effective where symptoms persisted with an eHF. Guidelines suggest that symptoms should resolve within 2-4 weeks on an eHF and if still persisting an AAF should be considered.5
