The article presents a study which examines the use of human milk and its antibacterial effect against the common causes of paediatric conjunctivitis. The study uses milk samples, polymyxin B sulfate/trimethoprim, and standard microbiological methods to determine the antibacterial effect of human milk. Results show that human milk is not effective against the common causes of conjuctivitis in children.
