  1. Colostrum beats infant formula

    Created on

    Fortification of human donor milk with bovine colostrum is superior to formula-based fortifiers when it comes to prevent gut dysfunction, necrotizing enterocolitis, and systemic infection in preterm pigs. This raises the expectation to the...
  2. Fortification and gut function

    Created on

    Fortification of human donor milk with bovine colostrum resulted in better intestinal function, lower bacterial load, protein metabolism, higher weight gain and less incidences of diarrhea in preterm pigs, compared to use of a formula-based...
  3. Epigenetics in preterm neonates

    Created on

    Oral antibiotic treatment in the 5 days after birth delayed bacterial colonization. This seems to provide lower immune response, less hypoxic stress, better vascular integrity and increased metabolism in the immature intestine via epigentic...
  4. Colostrum against oral mucositis

    Created on

    Children with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) receiving bovine colostrum as dietary supplementation and prophylactic protection showed significantly lower scores in the degree of chemotherapy-induced oral mucositis than placebo group....
  5. DNA methylation is diet dependent

    Created on

    Markedly difference in DNA methylation and function of the immature newborn intestine between preterm piglets fed infant formula and bovine colostrum highlight the importance of the correct early feeding regime for preterm infants.  ...
  6. Attenuation of cerebral metabolic shift

    Created on

    Infection with coagulase-negative staphylococci in newborn preterm infants induce a rapid metabolic shift in both plasma and cerebrospinal fluid, which was modulated by enteral colostrum feeding. Results showed attenuated lactate accumulation....
