Colostrum (known colloquially as beestings, bisnings or first milk) is the first form of milk produced by the mammary glands of mammals (including many humans) immediately following delivery of the newborn.
Early-lactation milk contains colostrum, which carries the mother's antibodies to its young and can reduce the risk of many diseases.

Immunoglobulin A

IgAimmunoglobulin alpha-chainsA
Colostrum is known to contain immune cells (as lymphocytes) and many antibodies such as IgA, IgG, and IgM.
sIgA is the main immunoglobulin found in mucous secretions, including tears, saliva, sweat, colostrum and secretions from the genitourinary tract, gastrointestinal tract, prostate and respiratory epithelium.

Lactoferrin

lactotransferrinRecombinant human lactoferrin
Other immune components of colostrum include the major components of the innate immune system, such as lactoferrin, lysozyme, lactoperoxidase, complement, and proline-rich polypeptides (PRP).
Human colostrum ("first milk") has the highest concentration, followed by human milk, then cow milk (150 mg/L).

Mammary gland

Colostrum (known colloquially as beestings, bisnings or first milk) is the first form of milk produced by the mammary glands of mammals (including many humans) immediately following delivery of the newborn.
In late pregnancy and for the first few days after giving birth, colostrum is secreted.

Colostrinin

Hence they appear under various names in the literature, including Colostrinin, CLN, transfer factor and PRP.
Colostrinin (also known as CLN, proline-rich polypeptides or PRP) is a naturally occurring mixture of proline-rich polypeptides derived from colostrum.

Transmission via colostrum, milk, and in utero exposure is generally considered to account for a relatively small proportion of infections.

Neonatal isoerythrolysis

Neonatal isoerythrolysis occurs if a foal is born with a blood group that is different from its dam, and then receives antibodies against those red blood cells (alloantibodies) through the mare's colostrum, leading to the lysis of the foal's red blood cells.

Passive immunity

Passive immunity is also provided through colostrum and breast milk, which contain IgA antibodies that are transferred to the gut of the infant, providing local protection against disease causing bacteria and viruses until the newborn can synthesize its own antibodies.
