Sixty-eight children fed human milk were followed prospectively from birth to 12 months of age to assess the effect of milk antibody on nasopharyngeal colonization. Human milk secretory IgA antibody to P6, a highly conserved outer membrane protein of nontypeable Haemophilus influenzae, was measured with the use of an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay. Nasopharyngeal colonization with nontypeable H. influenzae and the occurrence of otitis media were determined. Nasopharyngeal colonization was… CONTINUE READING
