Necrotising enterocolitis is an intestinal inflammatory disease, with the highest rate of incidence occurring in premature infants born before 36-weeks, due to infants missing out on the in-utero ingestion of vernix caseosa. The in-utero consumption of vernix caseosa is a key biological process, necessary for the effective and healthy modulation of the infant’s intestinal microbiome, as the branched chain fatty acid content of vernix caseosa allows many branched chain fatty acid commensal bact...
