Background : Bovine colostrum is a rich source of nutrients, antibodies and growth factors. 
Use of a Nutritional Therapy, Serum-Derived Bovine Immunoglobulin/Protein Isolate (SBI), to Achieve Improvement in Two Different Cases of Colitis
Two independent retrospective cases of refractory colitis, one ischemic and one pan ulcerative -colitis, successfully managed over a year by the inclusion of a non-probiotic, non-antibiotic, medicalExpand
Systematic review: the efficacy of herbal therapy in inflammatory bowel disease
Complementary and alternative medicine (CAM), particularly herbal therapy, is widely used by patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) but controlled data are limited.
Bovine colostrums: a review of clinical uses.

TLDR
Specific hyperimmune bovine colostrums, produced to have high neutralizing titer activity against Cryptosporidia, H. pylori, measles, rotavirus, and Shigella sp. Expand
Supplementation of Bovine Colostrum in Inflammatory Bowel Disease: Benefits and Contraindications
TLDR
This review discusses the use of bovine colostrum (BC) as a therapeutic agent, including its advantages and contraindications, and summarizes knowledge on well-researched BC constituents and their effects on the gastrointestinal tract as evidenced in in vitro and in vivo studies. Expand
Bovine Colostrum: Its Constituents and Uses
TLDR
The main constituents, quality control and an overview of the use of bovine colostrum in health and disease are described. Expand
Bovine colostrum as a biologic in clinical medicine: a review--Part II: clinical studies.
  • W. Struff, G. Sprotte
  • Medicine
  • International journal of clinical pharmacology and therapeutics
  • 2008
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
Overview of the Production of Bovine Colostrums and Hyperimmune Bovine Colostrums
Bovine colostrums are the “early” milk produced by cows during the first several days post-parturition. This “early” milk has a nutrient profile and immunological composition that differsExpand
Potential benefits of colostrum in gastrointestinal diseases.
TLDR
In the near future, colostrum-based supplements may play a complementary role to synthetic drugs in the prevention and treatment of various gastrointestinal disorders. Expand
The Prophylactic Use of Bovine Colostrum in a Murine Model of TNBS-Induced Colitis
TLDR
It is confirmed that pre-treatment with bovine colostrum modulates the expression of genes and the count of microbes involved in the etiopathogenesis of colitis, and seems to have the potential to be used as a natural supplement in the treatment of IBD. Expand

Colostrum and milk-derived peptide growth factors for the treatment of gastrointestinal disorders.
TLDR
The therapeutic possibilities of using whole colostrums, or individual peptides present in colostrum, for the treatment of various gastrointestinal diseases and the relative merits of the 2 approaches are discussed. Expand
Bovine colostrum is a health food supplement which prevents NSAID induced gut damage
TLDR
Bovine colostrum could provide a novel, inexpensive approach for the prevention and treatment of the injurious effects of NSAIDs on the gut and may also be of value for the treatment of other ulcerative conditions of the bowel. Expand
Co-administration of the health food supplement, bovine colostrum, reduces the acute non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug-induced increase in intestinal permeability.
TLDR
Preliminary evidence is provided that bovine colostrum, which is already currently available as an over-the-counter preparation, may provide a novel approach to the prevention of NSAID-induced gastrointestinal damage in humans. Expand

  • R. Xu
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Reproduction, fertility, and development
  • 1996
TLDR
There is evidence that colostrum-bone EGF and IGF-I play a role in postnatal GI development in newborns, and the role of other colstrum-borne hormones and growth-promoting peptides remains to be assessed. Expand

TLDR
The imperfect treatment of chronic inflammatory bowel disease might be improved in the new millennium by novel insights in the complex mode of action of mesalazine as well as in the etiopathogenesis of IBD. Expand
Effect of luminal growth factor preservation on intestinal growth
TLDR
Diversion of pancreatic juice to the mid point of the small intestine in rats significantly increased luminal EGF-like bioactivity and all variables of growth in the proximal enzyme-free segment, supporting a novel mechanism of control of intestinal growth, which has important clinical implications. Expand
Dexpanthenol enemas in ulcerative colitis: a pilot study.
TLDR
Topically administered dexpanthenol seems to be absorbed, but at the dose used in this study, it did not influence concentrations of colonic coenzyme A activity, fecal short-chain fatty acids, or clinical response in patients with active left-sided ulcerative colitis. Expand
Effects of lactoferrin and its peptides on proliferation of rat intestinal epithelial cell line, IEC-18, in the presence of epidermal growth factor.
TLDR
Results indicate that LF induces cell proliferation by a mechanism distinct from that of TF, and a synergistic effect of LF and EGF was observed in both cell proliferation and DNA synthesis assays. Expand
In Vivo Aspects of Urogastrone-Epidermal Growth Factor
  • H. Gregory
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Journal of Cell Science
  • 1985
TLDR
Synthetic material has been prepared with an identical structure to the natural URO-EGF thus enabling detailed studies of the biological effects to be pursued and increases in parameters related to wound healing, beneficial effects upon ulceration and also the ability to accelerate crypt cell production rate along the gastrointestinal tract. Expand
Protective effect of epidermal growth factor in an experimental model of colitis in rats.
TLDR
Systemic EGF administration reduces mucosal damage and inflammation in a trinitrobenzenesulfonic acid/ethanol model of colitis in rats through a mechanism involving mucosal protection. Expand
