It is now very clear that early feeding practices have lifelong implications for an individual's health as well as economic and public health consequences. This article summarises some of the importan...
This study sought to establish research priorities in human milk banking and use of pasteurised donor human milk. It aimed to (i) collaborate with national stakeholders, including parents of preterm i...
The benefits of breastfeeding and breast milk are well established. Women may intend to exclusively breastfeed their infants, but they often need to provide expressed breast milk upon returning to emp...
Aflatoxin M (AFM) in milk and milk products has been recognised as an issue for over 30 years. Controlling AFM in milk is important to protect human health and trade. Preventing contamination by avoi...
Polychlorinated naphthalenes are teratogenic environmental contaminants. Mother milk is the most important food for nursing infants. The World Health Organization actively promotes breastfeeding for i...
The purpose of this study is to determine if small oral doses of milk protein are safe and effective in decreasing sensitivity to cow's milk in allergic children.
The objectives of this study are: 1. To determine the consumption behaviors of dairy and non-dairy milks across a diverse demographic. 2. To determine the purchasing behav...
The purpose of D-pro is to investigate the combined and separate effects of milk protein and vitamin D on bone health, growth, muscle function, body composition and cardiometabolic health ...
This trial is a two-armed open randomized controlled trial in children aged 5-15 years with challenge proven Immunoglobulin E (IgE)-associated milk allergy.The purpose is to determine if o...
The purpose of this study is to determine if small oral and sublingual doses of milk protein are safe and effective in decreasing sensitivity to cow's milk in allergic children.
Allergic reaction to milk (usually cow's milk) or milk products. MILK HYPERSENSITIVITY should be differentiated from LACTOSE INTOLERANCE, an intolerance to milk as a result of congenital deficiency of lactase.
The processes of milk secretion by the maternal MAMMARY GLANDS after PARTURITION. The proliferation of the mammary glandular tissue, milk synthesis, and milk expulsion or let down are regulated by the interactions of several hormones including ESTRADIOL; PROGESTERONE; PROLACTIN; and OXYTOCIN.
Expulsion of milk from the mammary alveolar lumen, which is surrounded by a layer of milk-secreting EPITHELIAL CELLS and a network of myoepithelial cells. Contraction of the myoepithelial cells is regulated by neuroendocrine signals.
The major protein constituents of milk are CASEINS and whey proteins such as LACTALBUMIN and LACTOGLOBULINS. IMMUNOGLOBULINS occur in high concentrations in COLOSTRUM and in relatively lower concentrations in milk. (Singleton and Sainsbury, Dictionary of Microbiology and Molecular Biology, 2d ed, p554)
