CPG Sec. 275.100- Immune Milk March 1995



Immune Milk was developed by W. E. Peterson, Ph.D., Professor of Dairy Science, at the University of Minnesota. The product is prepared by giving cows a series of intramammary infusions of polyvalent antigens comprising phenol-killed bacterial pathogens. The antigen is infused at weekly intervals, by the teat canal into the udder tissues, four times before the cow freshens. The milk is collected, processed by pasteurization and kept in a frozen state until used.

Immune Milk has been recommended for such human disease conditions as rheumatoid arthritis, gastroenteritis, urinary tract and sinus infections, certain types of allergies, and chronic neurologic conditions (i.e. multiple sclerosis).
