Title: Galactooligosaccharides and 2'-fucosyllactose can directly suppress growth of specific pathogenic microbes and affect phagocytosis of neutrophils


Non-digestible oligosaccharides such as milk oligosaccharides (MOS) can regulate and influence immune function. As an example, galactooligosaccharides (GOS), and 2'-fucosyllactose (2'-FL; a specific human MOS) regulate immune development and functionality. Staphylococcus aureus (SA) and Pseudomonas aeruginosa (PA), both serious pathogens, can cause severe and life-threatening infections. The aim of this study was to examine the effects of GOS and 2'-FL on bacterial growth and on polymorphonuclear (PMN) phagocytosis.
