Normal newborns regularly form circulating antibodies to milk proteins by 10 to 14 days of life. Concentrations of these antibodies are influenced by gestational age but not by passive maternal antibody. Secretory antibodies of the IgA and IgM-isotype directed against casein and beta-lactoglobulin are present in the saliva of normal neonates.(More)
One hundred and fifty-eight healthy mature newborns were divided into 3 groups according to their risk of allergy: Group A, no risk (n = 62), group B, low risk (n = 30) and Group C, high risk (n = 66). Saliva was collected at birth and after 3 and 6 months. SIgA anti-casein and anti-beta-lactoglobulin were determined by a direct ELISA technique. The highest(More)
Secretory immunoglobulin A (SIgA) anti-casein and SIgA anti-beta-lactoglobulin (BLG) were determined in the saliva of 158 healthy mature infants at birth and in breast milk samples using a direct Elisa technique. IgG anti-casein and anti-BLG were measured in serum samples from mothers and newborns (cord blood). A high risk of allergy was defined in 66(More)
