OBJECTIVES Preterm infants are often fed pasteurized donor milk or mother's milk that has been stored frozen for up to 4 weeks. Our objectives were to assess the impact of pasteurization or prolonged storage at -20 degrees C on the immunologic components of human milk and the capability of the different forms of human milk to support bacterial proliferation. MATERIALS AND METHODS The concentrations and activities of major host defense proteins in the whey fractions of mother's milk stored for… CONTINUE READING
