    Recently, researchers assessed whether supplemental bovine lactoferrin (bLf) would undermine the acceptance of prevention probiotic administration intestinal tract less than 31 weeks of gestational age preterm children microbiota development, research results have been published in Pediatr Gastroenterol Nutr J
    .

    Preventive management

    The researchers recruited subjects from the LACUNA trial (ISRCTN66482337) and were randomly assigned to receive daily probiotic supplements or a mixture of probiotics supplemented with 100 mg bLf and milk powder/human milk
    .
    The feces of the selected infants were collected weekly for 1 month, and the microbiota was qualitatively determined using the V6-16S rRNA gene amplicon analysis method

    .

     

    The results showed that in the two feeding interventions, the diversity of the infant's microbiota did not increase over time
    .
    Compared with infants who did not receive these supplements, infants who received bLf supplements had more microbial species, and according to the infant's gestational age, lactoferrin supplements had different effects on the species richness of the infant's microbiota

    .
    The analysis shows that the infant microbiota is not separated by intervention group, gestational age at birth or sampling time.
    The main factor that determines sample clustering is infant identity

    .
    There were few detectable differences in the relative abundance or functional gene content of taxa in the microbiota of the two research groups

    .

    In summary, the results of this study indicate that bovine lactoferrin supplements have little effect on the microbiota composition/function of premature infants receiving probiotics, and therefore, it is unlikely to disrupt the development of the microbiota
