Pasteurized, donated breast milk is critical for feeding sick or premature infants. Operated by UC San Diego Health and located in the San Diego Blood Bank, the new facility represents one of the first groundbreaking partnerships between a blood bank and a mothers’ milk bank.
Scientists have launched a number of human milk and lactation studies to determine if SARS-CoV-2 can be transmitted to infants through human milk. Three scientists, including one from Washington University in St. Louis, wrote a new perspective article in the American Journal of Human Biology making the case for human milk studies co-created with the people whose milk is under investigation — and where study findings are interpreted in the context of real-life choices and experiences.
A recent study by researchers at University of California San Diego School of Medicine suggests transmission of COVID-19 through breast milk is not likely. The infectious virus was not detected in 64 samples of breast milk tested.

Rush University Medical Center and the Family Larsson-Rosenquist Foundation unveil open access, evidence-based PROVIDE Training Compendium to help healthcare professionals bring lifesaving mothers’ own milk to infants in intensive care
Rush University Medical Center, supported by the Family Larsson-Rosenquist Foundation, has produced a series of educational videos and mother-focused information sheets to train healthcare professionals in mothers’ own milk (MOM) feeding practices in neonatal intensive care units (NICUs) worldwide.
Researchers at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis and Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn., have found — in newborn mice — that a component of breast milk may help protect premature babies from developing life-threatening sepsis.
In a new study, researchers at University of California San Diego School of Medicine confirmed the findings of previous pilot studies that found an association between human milk concentrations and infant weight and body composition.
