Official Title:

Brief Summary: Colostrum is the first milk secreted by the mother when the tight junctions of mammary epithelium open, allowing the cellular transport of a multitude of components and immunological protective derivatives of the maternal circulation to the milk, and especially immunoglobulins A type. Colostrum is not given to preterm neonates. The assumption behind this work is that the oro pharyngeal administration of colostrum early in preterm infants could help deliver an oral immunotherapy even before the installation of enteral nutrition, through interactions with lymphoid tissues of the oropharynx and the gastrointestinal tract. This practice would improve the digestive tolerance and the establishment of enteral feeding, the decrease in mucosal inflammatory phenomena, but also to provide any protection against subsequent infections. Finally, there could be an improvement in the secondary immune tolerance with a decrease in the occurrence of allergic phenomena.
