The scientists observed:
"...SP-B mRNA levels increased 10-fold. Neither soy formula nor
non-fat dry milk affected steady-state SP-A and SP-B mRNA levels;

The researchers concluded:
"These results indicate that
infant formula has a direct, dose-dependent effect to reduce surfactant
protein gene expression. Ultimately, milk aspiration may potentially
result in a reduced capacity of the lung to defend against environmental
