IMMUNOPROTECTIVE EFFECTS OF BOVINE LACTOFERRIN IN HUMAN NUTRITION

Objective



The proposal covers a research programme considering the nutritive and pharmacological potentials of bovine and human lactoferrins as well as the functional peptides formed by enzymatic hydrolysis.

The goals result in new information upon mechanism in the initiation and the development of gastro-intestinal immune responses especially in the case of food allergy.

Polyclonal and monoclonal kits will be developed for in vitro and in vivo test procedures.

The peptides derived from the native bovine and human lactoferrin will bring interesting tools for new pharmacological and food applications.
