While previous studies have demonstrated that human breast milk contains bacteria, new research shows it also contains fungi. Researchers are now confident that certain fungi and bacteria are beneficial to babies’ health. Growing infants obviously derive health benefits from the yeasts, fungi and bacteria present in their mothers’ breast milk.

The study was published in the journal Applied and Environmental Microbiology.

Beyond the health benefits conferred by fungi, yeast and bacteria to young babies, researchers are also confident that breast milk introduces fungi and bacteria to the guts on infants. To scientists, this means breast milk contains a community of various organisms (microbiome or mycobiota) under healthy conditions.

Healthy Women Everywhere Have Beneficial Fungi, Yeast and Bacteria in Their Breast Milk

The researchers first established the presence of yeast, fungi and bacteria in the breast milk of mothers in Spain. So they sampled the breast milk of mothers from Finland, China and South Africa among others. They found the same to be true: breast milk contains yeasts and other fungi not minding the geographical location, weather, diets and lifestyles of mothers.

But then, the levels of fungi are not evenly distributed across women from all over the world. South African and Spanish mothers have 70% of fungi in their breast milk, while those in China have 45% and those in Finland have 35%.

The most common fungi found in the breast milk of women across the continents are Malassezia, Davidiella, Sistotrema and Penicillium among others. Malassezia are usually found in the sebaceous glands which lubricate the skin and hair; Davidiella are found in the women vagina; and Saccharomytes are found both in the human guts as well as in breast milk.

Yeast and Fungi in Breast Milk to Be Extracted To Develop Medications for Wellness

The researchers went further to compare the amount of organisms in the breast milk of mothers who delivered naturally against those who delivered via Cesarean section. Those that delivered vaginally have more fungi Cryptococcus in their milk, but the extent of fungal richness and diversity remains largely the same in both classes of women.

Having suggested that fungi are introduced to babies’ guts via breast milk, the scientists are quick to note that the “development of mycobiota in infants” requires further research.

Considering that Saccharomytes boulardii among other yeast species are used for probiotics developed to promote infant health, other types may be beneficial for general human health. The researchers are working on isolating strains of beneficial fungi, yeast and bacteria from breast milk to develop medications useful for human wellness.

By type, the in vitro diagnostics market is segmented as immunodiagnostics, chemistry diagnostics, molecular diagnostics, POCT among others. The market is dominated by immunodiagnostics, whereas molecular diagnostics has emerged as one of the leading and fastest-growing sectors of the IVD industry. Four significant and innovative trends are currently driving the global IVD market: POCT, automation, digitalization, and personalized medicine. In the diagnostics industry, placing diagnostics as close as possible to the patient and healthcare practitioners is a ground-breaking trend. POCT technologies deliver faster results as delays caused by transportation are mitigated. Similarly, there is no need for the preparation of clinical samples, as biochemical test results are available at the point of care. This could help speed up clinical decision making, with improved medical outcomes at lower costs.

On the basis of application analysis of in vitro diagnostics industry, laboratories segment contributed USD 32,156.1 million by revenue and is expected to grow with the highest CAGR of 7.3% over the forecast period through 2028. Most IVD experiments still take place in a laboratory. Many specialties currently have fully automated and advanced equipment, which produce results within minutes of loading the sample. Even the more ‘hands-on’ specialties like microbiology are gradually becoming more streamlined as machinery is created to decrease result time and allow researchers and pathologists to concentrate on results analysis and individual patient care.

Read details of the IVD Market report at: 

On the basis of regional demarcation of the IVD industry, North America leads the global market both in terms of supply and consumption of IVD solutions. The demand for consumables is significantly high in the market along with that of sophisticated and advanced analyzer technologies. Replacement of obsolete hardware is also prominently witnessed in North America and Europe. Additionally, high levels of outsourcing activities are responsible for the robust transition of the Asia Pacific IVD market. Some of the major factors attributed for the rapid growth of Asia Pacific, Latin America and MEA IVD markets are rapidly evolving healthcare infrastructure, growing disposable incomes, increasing awareness and adoption of POC technologies and so on.

Major players operating in the in vitro diagnostics market are F. Hoffmann-La Roche Ltd., Abbott, Danaher, Siemens Healthcare Private Limited, Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc., Sysmex Corporation, bioMérieux SA, Ortho Clinical Diagnostics, Hologic, Inc., Bio-Rad Laboratories, Inc., BD, and QIAGEN among other prominent players. Several companies competing in the IVD industry have been bulked up, whittled down or left the scene completely over the past few years. Names such as Phadia and Gen-Probe, who had been among the top 20 IVD firms less than a century ago, have now vanished after entering the folds of Thermo Fisher. Cepheid and Beckman Coulter are some other top names that have been acquired and helped push Danaher to strengthen its footprints in the IVD industry.

While players have come and gone in the in vitro diagnostic landscape, Roche Diagnostics has retained its prominence on the global front. But the Swiss giant is facing a fresh reality, like all its other larger competitors, with growing pressure to demonstrate medical value, and a more stringent regulatory climate. Roche Diagnostics has stood firmly in the midst of this changing scene as the number one IVD player in the world driven by development in its biggest company segment, Centralized and Point of Care Solutions (formerly called Professional Diagnostics). The market for professional diagnostics (PD) is that it continues to develop healthily; for more than 10 years it has experienced a 5% rise a year and similar trend is anticipated over the forecast period. The key sub segments of Roche as serum work area [SWA], specialty testing, point of care- all are contributing to the growth of Roche’s IVD market.

In terms of challenges, Adroit Market Research forecasts that IVD companies in Europe will be positioned with additional challenges, with more cutbacks in healthcare budgets. Pricing pressures in the US will also remain in the midst of uncertainty about health care reforms that the Trump administration is seeking to enforce.
