ABSTRACT
The article reports on the license agreement signed by Jennewein Biotechnologie with Pfizer Nutrition to develop and market two Human Milk Oligosaccharides (HMOs). Information on the health benefits of HMOs is presented. According to John Troup of Pfizer Nutrition, the partnership intends to replicate the composition and functional benefits of breast milk. There is a plan by Jennewein to focus the commercialization of HMOs on adult nutrition.

    Bifidobacteria are predominant in the intestines of breast-fed infants and offer health benefits to the host. Human milk oligosaccharides (HMOs) are considered to be one of the most important growth factors for intestinal bifidobacteria. HMOs contain two major structures of core tetrasaccharide:...

    A small fraction of human milk IgG antibodies is shown to possess polysaccharide kinase activity for the first time. Unlike all known kinases, IgG antibodies can use as phosphate donor not only [γ-32P]ATP, but also directly [32P] ortho-phosphate. Human milk IgGs therefore possess high...
