Post-mRNA vaccine antibodies in breast milk raises protective potential for babies

eAwaz Medicine

Toronto – A series of studies published recently from scientists around the world shows those who are pregnant or breastfeeding can pass on high levels of valuable antibodies against Covid-19 to their babies through vaccination and natural immunity, potentially protecting their infants from the disease. World Health Organization (WHO) also published a video and podcast segment addressing these concerns. The discovery that breast milk contains SARS-CoV-2 antibodies has also prompted scientists to research its potential use in other areas. Some North American research groups, including a Canadian company, are hoping to harness these antibodies and turn them into therapies for adults with immunocompromised systems.
