  • INDUSTRY, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Prolacta Bioscience announces that results of the double-blind study just published in the Journal of Pediatrics demonstrate that extremely premature infants who are fed an exclusive human milk diet instead of preterm formula have a significantly lower incidence of surgery associated with the intestinal disease necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC) and require fewer days of intravenous feedings through total parenteral nutrition (TPN).

  • cells
  • Åsa Håkansson and Camilla Bränning also noted that if blueberries are eaten together with probiotics, the content of butyric acid and propionic acid increased in the blood, two substances that are formed when fibre are broken down and that have previously been known to be important energy sources for intestinal cells. (innovations-report.com)
  • What surprised us was that such a large share of the butyric acid not only was taken up by the intestinal cells but was also transported onward to the blood. (innovations-report.com)
  • Previously it was thought that the intestinal cells used all of the butyric acid, but this is not at all the case," says Camilla Bränning, who recently defended her dissertation on the subject. (innovations-report.com)
