Maternal milk cytokines : potential immunomodulatory role in infant Giardia infection

This paper aims to provide a history of the publication of this paper and some of the proceedings that led to its creation and publication in the Journal of Forensic Sciences and Pathology.

Breast feeding and early life immunomodulation

To the Editor, We have read with interest the article from Belderbos et al. (1) suggesting the ability of breastfeeding to down-modulate the secretion of TNF-a and IL-10 by white blood cells in term

The relation of diverse infantile feeding patterns with wheeze/asthma prevalence in two cohorts of children of different ages (preschool and preadolescent) is investigated.

Early life response to infection

The view that greater consideration should be given to understanding the set point in the regulation of homeostatic control of innate and adaptive immunity and its interplay with metabolism and the newly acquired microbiome is advanced.

Plasma‐mediated immune suppression: a neonatal perspective

How immune regulation by these factors, which are particularly abundant in neonatal plasma, may eventually be used to treat immune‐mediated diseases, such as autoimmune, allergic, and inflammatory diseases are outlined.

Toll-like receptor signaling in neonatal sepsis and inflammation: a matter of orchestration and conditioning

It is concluded that neonatal innate immunity is not generally less able to respond to TLR stimulation and better understanding of the complex interplay of pre- and postnatal conditions and maturation-dependent neonatal TLR function may provide new therapeutic approaches.

It is concluded that neonatal innate immunity is not generally less able to respond to TLR stimulation and better understanding of the complex interplay of pre- and postnatal conditions and maturation-dependent neonatal TLR function may provide new therapeutic approaches.

Can breastfeeding protect against antimicrobial resistance?

It is suggested that breastfeeding and human milk supplements deserve greater attention as potential preventive measures in the global effort to combat antimicrobial resistance, particularly in low- and middle-income settings.

Evaluation of the effects of probiotic supplementation from the neonatal period on innate immune development in infancy

This data indicates that direct stimulation of the innate immune system by microbial stimulation is critical for normal immune maturation and may also be important for inhibiting allergic‐immune responses.

The relationships between the capacity for IL‐12 responses in the neonatal period and atopic risk (family allergy), in vitro T cell responses to allergens, and the subsequent development of allergic disease at 6 years are examined.

Breastfeeding reduces the severity of respiratory syncytial virus infection among young infants: A multi‐center prospective study

Background:  The objective of this study was to evaluate the effects of breastfeeding on the severity of respiratory syncytial virus infection in early infancy.

Maternal allergy modulates cord blood hematopoietic progenitor Toll-like receptor expression and function.

Neonatal innate immunity in allergy development

Dose, site and timing of allergen exposure are likely to modulate the innate immune response, polarizing the maturing neonatal immune system towards Th1 or Th2-type responses, thereby protecting from or predisposing to asthma and allergies.

Breastfeeding reduces immune activation in primary respiratory syncytial virus infection.

High sCD25 concentrations during the acute phase of infection, previously associated with severe RSV disease, were significantly and independently reduced in association with breastfeeding, whereas the Th1/Th3 balance was only modified in the recovery phase.

Maternal smoking is associated with impaired neonatal toll-like-receptor-mediated immune responses

It is indicated that in addition to effects on developing airways, maternal smoking also has significant immunological effects in pregnancy, which could contribute to the well recognised, subsequent increased risk of respiratory infections and asthma.

Effect of Labor on Lymphocyte Subsets in Full‐Term Neonates

Cord blood obtained at delivery from full‐term neonates, six born vaginally and six born by elective Cesarean section, was analyzed for lymphocyte subsets to determine the lymphocyte phenotype frequencies in these neonates.
