Effect of Human Milk or Formula on Gastric Function and Fat Digestion in the Premature Infant1
TLDR
Differences in type of feeding do not affect the level of activity of gastric enzymes, however, the triglyceride within milk fat globules appears to be more accessible to gastric lipase than that within formula fat particles.
Protective function of human milk: the milk fat globule.
Milk Fat Globule Glycoproteins in Human Milk and in Gastric Aspirates of Mother's Milk-Fed Preterm Infants
TLDR
It is demonstrated that two HMFG glycoproteins implicated in prevention of infection, MUC-1 mucin and lactadherin, survive and maintain their integrity in the stomachs of human milk-fed preterm infants.
Breastfeeding and the working mother: effect of time and temperature of short-term storage on proteolysis, lipolysis, and bacterial growth in milk.
TLDR
Minimal proteolysis during storage suggests that milk proteins probably maintain their structure and function during short-term storage, while the marked lipolysis might slow bacterial growth during this time.
Comparison of Midazolam and Diazepam by the Intramuscular Route for the Control of Seizures in a Mouse Model of Status Epilepticus
TLDR
It is suggested that midazolam has sufficiently rapid anticonvulsant action to merit evaluation for control of SE in humans when a rapidly absorbed antiepileptic drug (AED) is needed and intravenous (i.v.) administration is not feasible.
Digestive Lipases of the Newborn Ferret: Compensatory Role of Milk Bile Salt-Dependent Lipase
TLDR
The data indicate that colipase-dependent lipase is actually expressed in adult pancreas and might represent the main lipolytic system in the adult, and argue for a compensatory role of milk bile salt-dependentlipase in lipid digestion in the newborn.
Gastric proteolysis in preterm infants fed mother's milk or formula.
TLDR
It is suggested that stomach pH, enzyme output, and food structure are the reasons for differences in gastric digestion of protein and fat in infants.
Gastric Proteolysis in the Preterm Infant: Protein Digestion is Limited and Is Not Affected by Diet, Human Milk or Formula † 580
Gastric Proteolysis in the Preterm Infant: Protein Digestion is Limited and Is Not Affected by Diet, Human Milk or Formula † 580
Digestive enzymes in human milk: stability at suboptimal storage temperatures.
TLDR
It is concluded that milk provides the same compensatory digestive activity after short-term storage, even at relatively high temperature, as when fed fresh to the infant.
