Vernx Biotechnology

Compared to full term infants, premature infants are at risk of developing problems with their gut which also impacts the lungs and brain. It is now understood that many of these problems are related to inadequate nutrition. The nutritional requirements of premature infants are unique because of feeding difficulties, conditional dietary deficiencies and illness.  The importance of nutrition at this early stage is of critical importance. Vernx Biotechnology is committed to providing science based medical foods to improve gastrointestinal health and in turn reduce the incidence of necrotising enterolcolitis.
