Effects of milk and colostrum on superoxide generation of oral polymorphonuclear neutrophils and the changes that occur during storage at low temperature.


Human oral polymorphonuclear neutrophils (OPMN) generate reactive oxygen species even in the absence of stimulants. Because OPMN from newborn babies are exposed to colostrum and mature milk, the biological properties of these cells including the generation of reactive oxygen species might possibly be affected by the constituents of colostrum and milk. The… (More)
