UNLABELLED Factors such as cytokines and lymphocytes present in human milk can influence the developing immune system. This suggests an immunoregulatory role for human milk that is absent in infants consuming formula. There are very few data available from well-defined groups of breast-fed and formula-fed infants with regard to their immune status as reflected by lymphocyte immunophenotypic values. The aim of this study was to investigate the potential difference in lymphocyte subsets between… CONTINUE READING
