Competing Interests

Neither author has a competing financial interest. Kathryn Dewey is Principal Investigator and Mary Arimond is Project Manager for the International Lipid-Based Nutrient Supplements Project (http://www.iLiNS.org), an on-going series of efficacy trials using “small-quantity” LNS. The supplements used in these trials were developed in collaboration with Nutriset and are purchased from Nutriset for the trials. A representative from Nutriset serves on the iLiNS Project Steering Committee, but the company had no role in study design and will have no role in analysis of results. The iLiNS Project is funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
