A proprietary whey growth factor extract (WGFE) or Lactermin (Lact milk; ermin growth factors) is a whey fraction of milk containing the major proteins lactoperoxidase and lactoferrin, together with a variety of minor proteins and peptides such as the growth factors IGF-I, IGF-II, PDGF, FGF, TGF-ss and betacellulin.
