Low HCMV DNA copies can establish infection and result in significant symptoms in extremely preterm infants: a prospective study.
Breast milk (BM) is the main source of human cytomegalovirus (HCMV) infection. We examined whether the number of HCMV DNA copies in BM is related to HCMV infection in very low birth weight (VLBW)Expand

The freeze-thaw process and long intervals after fortification denature human milk fat globules.
Although mother's milk is the optimal nutrition for preterm infants, the amount of protein, calcium, and phosphorus become inadequate for the growth of preterm infants, such that fortification isExpand
