Bottle-feeding can prevent transmission of HTLV-I from mothers to their babies

Bottle-feeding can prevent transmission of HTLV-I from mothers to their babies

Journal of Infection 19(1): 25-29

This is a follow up to a study (see Abst. Hyg., 1986, 61, abst. 4744, and ibid., 1988, 63, abst. 278) in which it was shown that 24 of 31 breast-fed babies of HTLV-I-infected mothers were themselves infected at 24 months of age. The first study had shown that babies of HTLV-I-positive mothers who were bottle fed were less likely to be infected so that it became impossible to enlarge the study of outcome for breast-fed infants.
