Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to determine whether an infant formula supplemented with a new probiotic CECT7210, is effective in reducing the incidence of infections, specially the gastrointestinal ones.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Gastrointestinal Diseases Dietary Supplement: Infant Formula with a novel probiotic CECT7210 Dietary Supplement: Standard formula Not Applicable

Detailed Description:
This a multicenter, controlled, randomized, prospective, parallel, double-blinded study to evaluate the effect of an infant formula containing a new probiotic, Bifidobacterium longum biovar infantis CECT7210, on the incidence of diarrhea in healthy infants born at term. Infants will be randomized to take an standard infant formula or the infant formula with the probiotic CECT7210 during 12 weeks.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Changes in diarrhea incidence [ Time Frame: At 4th, 8th, 12th weeks ]
    Differences between diarrhea incidence amongst groups from baseline to 12th weeks.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Changes in infections incidence [ Time Frame: At 4th, 8th, 12th weeks. ]
    Differences between rate of infections or duration amongst groups.

  2. Changes in microbiota [ Time Frame: At 4th, 8th, 12th weeks ]
    Differences between faecal bacterial populations.

  3. Changes in Immunoglobulin A secretor (IgAs) [ Time Frame: At 4th and 12th weeks ]
    Differences between faecal IgAs amongst groups.

  4. Tolerability of the product [ Time Frame: At 4th, 8th and 12th weeks ]
    To evaluate gastrointestinal tolerability of both study formulas.

  5. Growth [ Time Frame: At 4th, 8th and 12th weeks ]
    To compare anthropometric measurements between probiotic CECT7210 formula group and standard group.
