Evidence of a strong and specific antibody response against SARS-CoV-2 in human milk

This presentation will outline the basic immunologic components of human milk, specifically those related to defending breastfed infants and children against infection. We will then dive deeper into what is known about the milk antibody response to various infections, including the origin of these antibodies, their function, and how they differ from those found in blood, as well as discuss what has yet to be fully understood in this research field. Next, our early findings regarding the antibody response in milk to SARS-CoV-2 following recovery from COVID-19  will be presented, including the range of responses in our cohort, the types of antibodies present in milk, and the levels of each antibody type. Finally we will discuss the possible functions and protective mechanisms of this antibody response in the context of protecting breastfed infants and children, and the potential for extracting these antibodies from donor milk as a COVID-19 therapeutic.

Objectives:

  • To learn about the basic immunological components of human milk
  • To understand the antibody response to infection in human milk and how this differs from the systemic response
  • To learn about the emerging data regarding the antibody response against COVID-19 in human milk
