The efficacy of a 2-month treatment with oral colostrum in the prevention of flu episodes compared with antiinfluenza vaccination was evaluated. Groups included healthy subjects without prophylaxis and those receiving both vaccination and colostrum. After 3 months of follow-up, the number of days with flu was 3 times higher in the non-colostrum subjects. The colostrum group had 13 episodes versus 14 in the colostrum + vaccination group, 41 in the group without prophylaxis, and 57 in nontreated… Expand
Effects of bovine colostrum on recurrent respiratory tract infections and diarrhea in children
TLDR
It is suggested that BC could be provided as a therapeutic option for children with recurrent URTI and diarrhea as it reduces the number of episodes and the hospitalization due to these infections. Expand
Effects of bovine colostrum on immune responses to prolonged exercise and upper respiratory illness in active males
TLDR
Proposals that COL may enhance human innate immunity by a direct and immediate mechanism are supported. Expand
The effect of dietary bovine colostrum on respiratory syncytial virus infection and immune responses following the infection in the mouse
TLDR
Dietary bovine colostrum exerts the effects to inhibit hRSV and ameliorate the symptom by h RSV infection, and enhances the CD8 T cell response during the hRSv infection. Expand
Bovine colostrum as a biologic in clinical medicine: a review--Part II: clinical studies.

TLDR
Clinical trials with BCC provide evidence that oral application reduces the influx of LPS from the gut and this appears to be a major mechanism underlying its therapeutic effect in patients at risk for Gram-negative septic shock. Expand
Augmentation of cellular immunity and protection against influenza virus infection by bovine late colostrum in mice.
TLDR
Results indicate that oral administration of SCBLC activates not only systemic cellular immunity but also local cellular immunity, such as in the respiratory tract, and that activation of cellular immunity is one of the mechanisms of amelioration of Flu infection. Expand
Improvement of common cold with Pycnogenol®: a Winter registry study.
TLDR
Pycnogenol® appears to decrease symptoms of cold and shorten its course also preventing some complications, and appears to make regression faster for all symptoms in comparison with controls. Expand

TLDR
The main constituents, quality control and an overview of the use of bovine colostrum in health and disease are described. Expand
Enhanced Bovine Colostrum Supplementation Shortens the Duration of Respiratory Disease in Thoroughbred Yearlings
TLDR
Evaluated the effects of a BC, MOS, zinc and vitamin based enhanced bovine colostrum supplement (BCS) on incidence and duration of RD occurring in yearling horses and found the average duration of illness was shorter for BCS yearlings than placebo yearlings. Expand
The effects of milk and colostrum on allergy and infection: Mechanisms and implications
TLDR
Current milk-processing technologies are needed to preserve immune active milk proteins that can improve immunity in children, and raw milk is not commercially available and cannot be used for controlled intervention studies because of the potential presence of pathogenic microorganisms. Expand
Bioactive Components in Colostrum and Milk from Canadian Holsteins Classified as High, Average and Low Immune Responders
TLDR
Results indicated that cattle High (H) for AMIR have significantly greater total IgG and β-LG in colostrum compared to A and L AMIR cows. Expand

A preparation from bovine colostrum in the treatment of HIV-positive patients with chronic diarrhea
TLDR
Treatment of refractory diarrhea with 10 g immunoglobulins from bovine colostrum per day constitutes an important therapeutic approach and led to complete or partial remission of diarrhea in 64% of the patients described here. Expand
The effect of influenza on hospitalizations, outpatient visits, and courses of antibiotics in children.
TLDR

More on RotaShield and intussusception: the role of age at the time of vaccination.
TLDR
The practice of initiating immunization after age 90 days, which the authors call "catch-up" vaccination, contributed disproportionately to the occurrence of intussusception associated with the use of RotaShield. Expand
Change in Recommendation Affects Influenza Vaccinations Among Children 6 to 59 Months of Age
TLDR
Concomitant with the 2002-2003 influenza vaccine recommendation for healthy children 6 to 23 months of age, influenza vaccinations for these children increased significantly and physicians have the opportunity to increase the pediatric influenza vaccination rate by improving their recommendation strategies.

Treatment of diarrhoea in human immunodeficiency virus-infected patients with immunoglobulins from bovine colostrum
TLDR
In a multi-center pilot study 37 immunodeficiency patients with chronic diarrhoea and patients with graft versus host disease following bone marrow transplantation were treated with oral LIG, good therapeutic effects were observed and no serious side effects were recorded in any of the treated patients.

Survival of Rotavirus Antibody Activity Derived From Bovine Colostrum After Passage Through the Human Gastrointestinal Tract
TLDR
The results show that antirotavirus activity survived passage through the gut, and passive immunotherapy may be used to prevent or treat infectious diseases that affect the entire length of the gastrointestinal tract. Expand
Concentrated bovine colostrum protein supplementation reduces the incidence of self-reported symptoms of upper respiratory tract infection in adult males
TLDR
Preliminary evidence that CBC may enhance resistance to the development of symptoms of URTI is provided, suggesting that concentrated bovine colostrum protein may prevent upper respiratory tract infection in adult males. Expand
Efficacy and effectiveness of influenza vaccines in elderly people: a systematic review
TLDR
In long-term care facilities, where vaccination is most effective against complications, the aims of the vaccination campaign are fulfilled, at least in part, but according to reliable evidence the usefulness of vaccines in the community is modest. Expand
