Notes for this study:
Supplementation of colostrum (14mg sucking tablet) in children with IgA deficiency noted that infection and sickness severity (from viral URTIs) was significantly reduced (via parental report) relative to placebo after one week. This was not associated with salivery IgA, as colostrum failed to increase this parameter after one week.
