Presented at European Society for Paediatric Gastroenterology Hepatology and Nutrition...


Human milk oligosaccharides (HMOs), a group of complex sugar molecules, are the third most abundant component of human milk that contribute to shaping infant microbial communities as well as immune responses with potential immediate and long-term benefits for infant health and development. In this presentation, Lars Bode reviews the basic science of HMOs and their effect beyond microbiota.
