Lactoferrin is part of the immune system and multiple tissues including the gastrointestinal (GI) tract, liver, and lung contain receptors for lactoferrin. Lactoferrin has many functions, including antimicrobial, immunomodulatory, and iron binding. Additionally, lactoferrin inhibits the migration of eosinophils, which are constitutively present in the GI tract, and increase during inflammation. Lactoferrin suppresses eosinophil infiltration into the lungs and eosinophil migration in -vitro… Expand
The Role of Lactoferrin in Gastrointestinal and Immune Development and Function: A Preclinical Perspective.
TLDR
Clinical studies demonstrating benefits of dietary lactoferrin in the prevention of infections, late onset sepsis, and necrotizing enterocolitis are supported, and clinical and epidemiologic data provide strong evidence that breastfeeding reduces the incidence and/or severity of infectious diseases. Expand
Porcine lactoferrin-derived peptide LFP-20 modulates immune homoeostasis to defend lipopolysaccharide-triggered intestinal inflammation in mice
TLDR
Pre-treatment with LFP-20 could defend against LPS-triggered systemic inflammatory response in mice via modulating immune homoeostasis, and it was indicated pre- treatment with L FP-20 sustained the balance of CD3+CD8+ T cells, B cells and natural killer cells in L PS- Triggered immune disturbance.

Lactoferrin suppresses lipopolysaccharide-induced endometritis in mice via down-regulation of the NF-κB pathway.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that LF significantly attenuated the histopathological changes in the uterus, reduced the activity of myeloperoxidase (MPO) and the levels of nitric oxide, and inhibited the activation of NF-κB and the expression of tumor necrosis factor-α and interleukin-1β in a dose-dependent manner.

TLDR
Current understanding, though incomplete, of the many ways lactoferrin influences the complex immune machinery and the known and putative mechanisms that may explain its properties are reviewed. Expand
Lactoferrin, all roads lead to Rome
TLDR
From the 1960s onward, when the protein was first purified from milk, the number of scientific publications concerning its biochemical properties, the various biological functions and the potential therapeutic applications of lactoferrin and its bioactive peptides has significantly increased.

TLDR
The aim of this review is to highlight the recent advances concerning multifunctional Lf activities and focus on its recent physiopathology implication in metabolic disorders, including obesity, type 2 diabetes, and cardiovascular diseases. Expand
Lactoferrin Decreases the Intestinal Inflammation Triggered by a Soybean Meal-Based Diet in Zebrafish
TLDR
It is demonstrated that LF displays a dual effect in zebrafish, acting as an intestinal anti-inflammatory agent and improving performance against bacterial infection. Expand
Lactoferrin, a Pleiotropic Protein in Health and Disease
TLDR
A review of the recent advances concerning multifunctional Lf activities and the large variety of its physiological functions such as iron homeostasis, transportation, immune regulation, oxidative stress, inflammation, and apoptosis is highlighted. Expand

Immunobiology of Intestinal Eosinophils – A Dogma in the Changing?
TLDR
The prevailing dogma of eosinophils merely as antiparasitic effector cells is changing, and it has been suggested that eos inophils can contribute also to several other processes in the intestinal mucosa, e.g. local tissue homeostasis and adaptive immune responses. Expand
Consumption of transgenic cows’ milk containing human lactoferrin results in beneficial changes in the gastrointestinal tract and systemic health of young pigs
TLDR
Overall favorable changes in systemic health and GI villi architecture were observed; indicating that consumption of rhLF-milk has the potential to induce positive changes in the GI tract. Expand
Inhibition of eosinophil migration by lactoferrin
TLDR
It is shown that, lactoferrin (LTF), a pleiotropic 80‐kDa glycoprotein with iron‐binding properties, acts as a powerful inhibitor of eosinophil migration, and is highlighted as one of the few molecules reported to negatively regulate eos inophilic granulocytes. Expand
Lactoferrin research, technology and applications
TLDR
Basic research and technological aspects of the application of lactoferrin are reviewed, including anti-infective, anticancer, and anti-inflammatory effects, and its efficacy is being evaluated. Expand
Characteristic transport of lactoferrin from the intestinal lumen into the bile via the blood in piglets.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that lactoferrin contained in milk is transported into the circulation from the intestinal lumen and excreted into the bile, suggesting the possibility of entero-hepatic circulation of lact oferrin in neonatal pigs. Expand
Lysozyme transgenic goats’ milk positively impacts intestinal cytokine expression and morphology
TLDR
It is concluded that consuming pasteurized milk containing hLZ does not induce an inflammatory response and improves the health of the small intestine in pigs. Expand
Lactoferrin restrains allergen-induced pleurisy in mice
TLDR
Lactoferrin significantly decreased manifestation of pleurisy induced by OVA in a sensitized mouse model, and the percentages of eosinophils in blood and pleural exudates were strongly diminished. Expand
Regulation of cytokine release from mononuclear cells by the iron-binding protein lactoferrin.
TLDR
Lf, released from activated neutrophils, acts as a negative feedback mechanism to prevent recruitment and activation of leukocytes in sites of inflammation, and is suggested to modulate immune responses by inhibiting cytokine activity. Expand

TLDR
Flow cytometric analysis of eosinophil αM (CD11b) and α4 (CD49d) integrins revealed that cotreatments with LF plus GM-CSF induced a significant increase in CD11b compared with control and GM- CSF treatments but a significant decrease in CD49d compared withcontrol and GM -CSF treatments. Expand
Cloning of a pig homologue of the human lactoferrin receptor: expression and localization during intestinal maturation in piglets.
TLDR
The findings demonstrate the presence of a human SI-LfR homologue in pig, with mRNA and protein expression concomitantly regulated in the duodenum and inverselyregulated in the jejunum, and suggest a mechanism by which pig Lf can be internalized in the intestine. Expand
