  Purpose
This is a randomised, controlled, open-label intervention study. It is hypothesized that supplementation with a fibre enriched sip feed will improve the nutritional status, gut microbiota and quality of life (QOL) of children with acute lymphoblastic leukemia, and may enhance their immune response. This could give them a better chance to finish their induction chemotherapy successfully with fewer side effects.

Condition Intervention
Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia Dietary Supplement: NutriniDrink/Fortini MF unflavoured (1.5kcal/ml)

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Supportive Care
Official Title: Effect of Oral Supplementation With a Fibre Enriched Paediatric Sip Feed on the Nutritional Status, Gut Microbiota and Quality of Life of Children With Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia: an Egyptian Pilot Study

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Study Parameters [ Time Frame: 42 days ]

    Primary

    • Change in body weight between Baseline and Day 42 [kg, weight-for-age z score, weight-for-height z-score]
    • Percentage of children with body weight loss between Baseline and Day 42 [%]


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Study Parameters [ Time Frame: from day 1 to day 91 of the study ]
    • Stool microbiota at Baseline and at Day 42 [proportion of Bifidobacteria, total stool culture]
    • Quality of life at Baseline, at Day 42 and Day 91 [PedsQL Cancer Module]
    • Change in body weight between Baseline and Day 91 [kg, weight-for-age z score, weight-for-height z-score]
    • Percentage of children with body weight loss between Baseline and Day 91 [%]


Enrollment: 120
Study Start Date: December 2011
Study Completion Date: September 2014
Primary Completion Date: August 2014 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Active Comparator: NutriniDrink/Fortini group
this group will receive 2 bottles of NutriniDrink/Fortini MF unflavoured daily (200 ml each) and standard dietary counselling for a period of 6 weeks.
Dietary Supplement: NutriniDrink/Fortini MF unflavoured (1.5kcal/ml)
During the 6-week Intervention period children allocated to group 1 will consume 2 bottles of study product per day (400ml in total).
No Intervention: control group
this control group will only receive standard dietary counselling

Detailed Description:

Study objectives:

Primary objective:

To evaluate the effect of oral supplementation with a fibre supplemented paediatric sip feed on the nutritional status of Egyptian children with acute lymphocytic leukemia (ALL) compared to standard dietary counseling.

Secondary objective:

To evaluate the effect of oral supplementation with a fibre supplemented paediatric sip feed on the gut microbiota and quality of life (QoL) of Egyptian children with ALL compared to standard dietary counseling.
