Nutrition and General Health
A randomized, double blind, controlled trial of an oral nutritional supplement containing AN 777 in older, hospitalized patients.
Sponsored by Abbott Nutrition
The purpose of this study is to see if people over 65 who are admitted to the hospital with pneumonia, heart failure, heart attacks or worsening COPD do better if they are given additional nutritional supplements. The patients will be followed for 3 months to see if they use less healthcare services, including fewer visits to their doctors, to the emergency room, and to the hospital.
Subjects will be randomly assigned to one of two supplements, one containing AN777 and the other without AN777.
