PMID:  19762172     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
The use of HMF remains an important option and has become common practice in all neonatal intensive care units. However, optimal composition of fortifiers is still undefined and more data are needed on safety and long-term benefits. Further research should be directed toward comparisons between different proprietary preparations, evaluating both short-term and long-term outcomes and adverse effects, in search of the best method of fortification.
