The iLiNS Project has developed research protocols for acceptability studies, efficacy trials, and socio-economic studies. Links to the protocols for all efficacy trials are available below. Descriptions of several Project sub-studies are also available below. We also provide a two-page description of our approach to assessment of infant motor, cognitive, and socio-emotional development in each study site.

Protocols for acceptability studies and efficacy trials are all be registered at clinicaltrials.gov, a website maintained by the U. S. National Institutes of Health. Links to protocols at clinicaltrials.gov follow.
