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.
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.
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
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control anticipated prenatal COVID-19 infection to affect fetal development like other common respiratory coronaviruses do. While the role of nutrition is obscure, this new article proposed the potential role of choline on coronavirus infection during pregnancy.
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+).
