Latest Findings in Breastfeeding Science Presented at Medela's 7th International Breastfeeding and Lactation Symposium
Date:4/23/2012

the presence of oligosaccharides in human milk. Initial research conclusions show the high concentration of unbound oligosaccharides, complex sugars found in human milk that cannot be replicated in infant formula, may help prevent necrotizing entercolitis (NEC). This finding may explain why formula-fed, mainly pre-term infants are six times more likely to suffer from this life-threatening inflammatory bowel disease than infants fed with breastmilk.

Lastly, University of Western Australia doctoral candidate Foteini Hassiotou presented specific findings from her research that found stem cells from breastmilk have the potential to become other body cell types such as bone, fat, liver and brain cells. Stem cell researchers are hoping this could be one way to ethically and easily obtain pluripotent stem cells in a non-invasive manner, and researchers are excited and looking forward to better understanding the contribution that these cells can make to the health of infants.

As a long-time champion of breastfeeding, Medela is proud to convene this group of international experts to discuss the latest insights into breastfeeding science. This dedication to research is powered by Medela's commitment to breastfeeding, and to the support of nursing mothers and their families the world over.
