Abstract:

Oral lactoferrin supplementation in human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-infected, antiretroviral therapy-naïve children resulted in a skewing of T-lymphocytes towards more differentiated subpopulations. Phagocytosis (P=0.01) and killing (P=0.009), Toll-like receptor 2 expression (P=0.01) and the interleukin-12/interleukin-10 ratio (P=0.001) were also improved by lactoferrin. Lactoferrin supplementation results in immune modulation and could be useful in HIV infection.
