Background
[Literature Library] Host microbe interactions in the lactating mammary gland
Abstract

This article reviewed recent studies describing the human milk microbiome (hMM) and the evidence for its role in infant and maternal health. The article not only explored the emerging connection between the hMM and mammary gland physiology and lactation, but it also discussed the host-microbiome interaction in the mammary gland and its potential effects on maternal health, including mastitis.
