Study: Breast Milk May Fend Off Group B Strep

Study: Breast Milk May Fend Off Group B Strep

A recent study suggests that the sugars contained in human milk may work to protect against Group B Strep (GBS), a common type of bacteria that can cause severe infection in newborn babies. Researchers from Vanderbilt University analyzed the interaction between sugars from donated breast milk and lab cultured GBS. One donor’s milk sugars killed GBS bacteria almost completely, while sugars from another donor had a moderate effect.  If further research confirms these findings, human milk sugars may be used to treat bacterial infections in people of all ages in the future.
