Special Issue "The Use of Bovine Colostrum in Medical Practice and Human Health"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (20 September 2021) | Viewed by 33641
Colostrum is the first form of milk produced by mammals following birth, and contains high amounts of bioactive compounds such as antibodies, antimicrobials, and growth factors to protect newborns against disease and infection, and aid in gut development. There is a great deal of interest in the value of bovine colostrum, produced as a side product of the dairy industry for the maintenance of human health and in treating disease. Multiple trials are currently ongoing worldwide, with its potential applicability covering the entire age spectrum from newborns to the elderly.
In this Special Issue, we would like to bring readers closer to the state-of-the-art in the field by gathering papers covering different aspects of the use of bovine colostrum in medical practice and human health. Articles are invited which cover matters such as the constituents of colostrum, the effect of bovine colostrum on physiology and pathophysiological processes including (but not restricted to) GI health and disease, the microbiome, immune function, use in sports medicine, and its use in different age groups, including children. Original research articles and reviews (systematic reviews and meta-analyses) are welcome.
