  • Breast milk samples were collected before and 10 and 60 minutes after exercise and rest sessions. (
  • Moderate exercise during lactation improves cardiovascular fitness without affecting levels of IgA, lactoferrin, or lysozyme in breast milk. (
  • This latter function is reflected by the immunologic composition of breast milk and is vital for newborns as their mucosal and systemic immune systems are primarily undeveloped at birth. (
  • IgA in breast milk is in the molecular form of sIgA and is therefore more resistant to proteolytic activity of the gastrointestinal tract. (

  • AOAC INTERNATIONAL (AOAC) announces the availability of a draft standard method performance requirements (SMPR®) for the determination of Bovine Lactoferrin in Infant and Adult/Pediatric Nutritional Formula. (
  • The intake of some active compounds present in food, the so-called nutraceuticals and functional foods, can be regarded as having beneficial effects (physical and mental) on certain functions in the human body, that go beyond their nutritional effects. (
  • Lonnerdal B (2009), Nutritional roles of Lactoferrin. (
  • Lonnerdal B (2009) Nutritional roles of Lactoferrin.Current Opinion in Clinical Nutrition and Metabolic Care, 12, 293-297 2. (
  • Furthermore, we found that lactoferrin increases migration and invasiveness of both non-TNBC and TNBC cell lines. (
  • Prevention of neonatal sepsis relies on hygiene measures, cautious use of invasive procedures, medication stewardship, administration of fresh maternal milk, and early diagnosis," Paolo Manzoni, MD, of Anna Hospital in Torino, and colleagues wrote. (
  • Next to rats and mice, piglets have become one of the most frequently used animal models to study human neonatal nutrition. (
  • About 80% of the proteins in milk are caseins- reasonably heat stable and, for most, easy to digest. (
  • Jiang, R., and Lönnerdal, B. (2012) Apo- and holo-lactoferrin stimulate proliferation of mouse crypt cells but through different cellular signaling pathways. (
  • Lactoferrin may also stimulate the cells responsible for bone growth. (
  • Recently we reported for the first time that iron content is a critical determinant in the anti-tumour activity of bovine milk lactoferrin (bLf). (
  • Triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC) is characterized by the lack of expression of estrogen receptor-α (ER-α), progesterone receptor (PR), and human epidermal growth factor receptor-2 (HER-2). (
  • Creating a forum for the productive exchange of ideas concerning early human growth . (
  • In a small Phase I trial, a patented form of oral lactoferrin given alone was able to either reduce the growth or actually shrink solid tumors when given to human patients in doses of 1.5-9g/day in a two week on/two week off schedule. (
  • Lactoferrin acts as a prebiotic and stimulates the growth of good bacteria in the gut such as lactobacillus and bifidobacterium. (
  • Bovine milk contains the nutrients needed for growth and development of the calf, and is a resource of lipids, proteins, amino acids, vitamins and minerals. (
  • As one of the world's leading manufacturers of purified lactoferrin, Glanbia decided to expand the production of the bioactive protein as a result of significant global customer and market demand growth, with the expansion expected to be completed in 2015. (
  • 2 Lactoferrin also works at the mucosal sites and has demonstrated antiinflammatory and antimicrobial activities, such as competing with bacteria for ferric iron and preventing the growth of microorganisms. (
  • The demand for lactoferrin is increasing globally and given the growth of the early life nutrition category we expect this demand to even further increase," Lindeboom continues. (
  • Results from Chinese work in 2006 showed an improved growth performance, increased ADG by 41.80% and increased efficiency of gain by 17.20% when the pigs were supplemented with lactoferrin. (
  • [6] During pregnancy little milk secretion occurs due to the high progesterone to estrogen ratio, which favors breast growth. (
  • Lactoferrin can bind the iron making it unavailable to these bacteria hence depriving them of a crucial growth factor leading to their decimation. (
  • and children receiving raw milk had better growth than those receiving pasteurized milk. (
  • In an early animal study, animals fed raw milk had better growth, less anemia, fewer signs of anxiety and stress, and fewer signs of nutrient deficiency than animals fed pasteurized milk. (
  • after the first weeks, the protein content of human milk is too low to ensure adequate growth. (
  • Mucosal defense proteins like IgA, surfactant proteins and lactoferrin also bind to DMBT1s through their SRCR domains. (
  • In humans some SRCR proteins specialized to particular functions, while others may have maintained a broad role in various physiological processes, e.g., participating in defense and regenerative processes. (
  • Some people describe this protein as the 'Swiss army knife' of the human host defense system," says Vogel. (
  • This process is shaped in part by the high amounts of human milk oligosaccharides that serve as a carbon source for saccharolytic bacteria such as Bifidobacterium species. (
  • This chapter gives an overview of the biological activities of goat products and the effects of peptides, fats, and oligosaccharides present in goat milk on pathogenic bacteria, as well as their ability to regulate immunological, gastrointestinal, hormonal, and neurological responses in humans. (
  • Breastmilk also contains lactoferrin, a component in breastmilk that actually kills strep mutans (the bacteria that causes tooth decay). (
  • However, if there are small defects in the enamel, the teeth become more vulnerable and the protective effect of breastmilk is not enough to counteract the combined effect of the bacteria and the sugars in the milk. (
  • Damage of the membrane of enteric Gram-negative bacteria by lactoferrin and transferrin. (
  • However, lactoferrin does not affect the lactic acid bacteria present in the small intestine. (
  • Besides having known inhibitory effects on harmful species of bacteria (21), lactic acid boosts the absorption of calcium, phosphorus and iron, and has been shown to make milk proteins more digestible by knocking them out of solution as fine curd particles (22)(23). (
