Newly discovered breast milk antibodies help neutralize HIV. Antibodies that help to stop the HIV virus have been found in breast milk.

Newly discovered breast milk antibodies help neutralize HIV

Researchers at Duke University Medical Center isolated the antibodies from immune cells called B cells in the breast milk of infected mothers in Malawi, and showed that the B cells in breast milk can generate neutralizing antibodies that may inhibit the virus that causes AIDS. HIV-1 can be transmitted from mother to child via breastfeeding, posing a challenge for safe infant feeding practices in areas of high HIV-1 prevalence. But only one in 10 HIV-infected nursing mothers is known to pass the virus to their infants. "That is remarkable, because nursing children are exposed multiple times each day during their first year of life," said senior author Sallie Permar, M.D., Ph.D., an assistant professor of pediatrics and infectious diseases at Duke. The study was published on May 18 in PLoS One, an open-access journal published by the Public Library of Science.

For decades, milk was thought of strictly in terms of nutrients, which makes sense—milk is how a mother feeds her baby, after all. But providing nutrients turns out to be only part of what milk does. “Mother’s milk is food; mother’s milk is medicine; and mother’s milk is signal,” says Katie Hinde, an assistant professor of human evolutionary biology at Harvard. But first, a disclaimer—because conversations about lactation always seem to require disclaimers, especially if you happen to be someone who will never ever lactate.

German women should 'stay at home and have three or four children' Cardinal Meisner said: “We should train these unemployed people, give them a fresh perspective, but then allow them to go back to their homeland, where they are needed.”

Germany has Europe’s lowest birth rate, at just 1.36 children per woman, according to the federal statistical agency. During her first term in office in 2006, Mrs Merkel introduced generous child benefit payments, worth up to 65% of a new parent’s salary to a maximum of 1800 euros a month. But the policy has had little effect on the country’s birth rate, which continues to dwindle.

Most schools in Germany end at lunchtime, making it difficult for parents to work full-time – though an increasing number are beginning to stay open in the afternoon. Annegret Laakmann, president of the Catholic group Frauenwuerde (“Women’s Dignity”) dismissed the 79-year-old archbishop’s views. She told the Daily Telegraph: “Age doesn’t always bring wisdom.
