Conclusions

While FHs-74 cell proliferation was greatest in the presence of AHM, individual growth factors did increase cell proliferation above control. Cell proliferation varied as a function of growth factor type and combination. Such variation in growth factor effect supports the premise of a narrow physiologic range and combination at which each growth factor in human milk may maximally stimulate gut epithelial cells.
