Impact of breastfeeding on the incidence and severity of respiratory syncytial virus (RSV)-associated acute lower respiratory infections in infants: a systematic review highlighting the global relevance of primary prevention
Jump to comment:
I suggest the basis of Mineva, et al., is dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA). A case may be made that breast feeding increases DHEA; prolactin is directly connected with secretion of breast milk. Prolactin is a direct and specific stimulus for DHEA production. Low prolactin is frequently found in viral infections, including RSV.
