Bioactive nutrition and infant gut development - Dr. Ryan Carvalho
Scientific advances have enabled a better understanding of some of the unique components in human milk, termed ‘bioactives’, which are thought to protect against infection and inflammation, and contribute to immune maturation and healthy microbial colonisation.
Gangliosides are complex bioactive lipids, naturally found in breastmilk

Discussing the medical advances in Neonatology in respiratory and neurodevelopment, late preterm outcomes, and the role of nutrition.
Necrotising Enterocolitis and the Preterm Microbiome
Necrotising enterocolitis (NEC) is a devastating inflammatory condition of the gut that primarily affects preterm infants. Whilst the aetiology varies from case to case, recent data show that the onset of NEC is closely associated with the pattern of gut microbiota, especially in the few days prior to NEC onset. Recent studies suggest Human Milk Oligosaccharides (HMOs) may be a key component of breast milk associated with reductions in NEC.
Early Nutrition Preterm Infants
Mechanisms that early nutrition impacts later health including metabolic programing, brain development, gut microbiota
