[Guideline Summary] Medical management and monitoring of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) in Asia
In view of the increasing incidence and prevalence of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) in Asian countries, the Asian Organization for Crohn’s and Colitis (AOCC) and the Asia Pacific Association of Gastroenterology have established recommendations on medical management of IBD specifically in Asia.
[Literature Library] The CHILD Cohort Study: Co-occurrence of bacteria in breast milk and the infant gut
Involving 1,249 Canadian mother-baby pairs, the Canadian Healthy Infant Longitudinal Development Study (CHILD) Cohort Study evaluates the association of multiple breastmilk feeding practices, milk bacteria and milk components with neonatal microbiota composition.
[Hot Science] Randomized clinical trial on bovine milk oligosaccharides (BMOs) supplementation, intestinal biomarkers and microbiota
In this newly published randomized clinical trial (RCT), bovine milk oligosaccharides (BMOs) was the only component which differed between the test formulas, hence, potentially the main driver for the observed effects on intestinal biomarkers and microbiota of the infant subjects.
Metabolic effects of BMOs on selected commensals
This study investigated the carbohydrate-dependent effects on the above selected commensals when fed with bovine milk oligosaccharides (BMOs) and/or lactose using mono- and co-cultures of three different bacterial species (Clostridium perfringens, Parabacteroides distasonis and Bifidobacterium lo
