Human Milk Oligosaccharides (HMO)
Role of HMOs on Infant Immune Health and Association with Cognition
This infographic summarises the role of human milk oligosaccharides (HMOs) as defense factors and how they can support the developing immune system. In addition, it explores preclinical evidence available that suggests HMOs may play a role in brain developmental processes.
[Literature Library] Human milk oligosaccharides (HMO) profiles of Chinese mothers
This longitudinal study collected single milk samples from 163 mothers and multiple milk samples from 59 mothers in Jiangmen and Guangzhou, China at timepoints from post-partum day 3 until day 168 to analyze their HMO profiles.
[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.
Hot topics in bioactive nutrition – HMOs and MOS - Dr. Colin Cercamondi
Human milk oligosaccharides (HMOs) and bovine milk derived oligosaccharides (MOS) are bioactive components in infant nutrition that have been clinically demonstrated to have favorable gut microbiome modulating effects as well as beneficial effects on gastrointestinal related immunity.
[Hot science] Neutral HMO concentrations of breastmilk samples of Chinese mothers
In this prospective study, a total of 464 human milk samples were collected from 116 Chinese mothers from Beijing, Xuchang and Suzhou at four different time points. In total, 76.7% mothers were found to be Secretor and Lewis positive phenotype (Se+Le+).
Bioactive nutrition and infant gut development - Dr. Ryan Carvalho
Scientific advances have enabled a better understanding of some of the unique components in human milk, termed ‘bioactives’, which are thought to protect against infection and inflammation, and contribute to immune maturation and healthy microbial colonisation.
