In brief: I doubt it

If you believed all the claims made for lactoferrin supplement pills, you'd be reading uncritically.
There are some real studies that support the use of this germ-killer to make episodes of bacterial diarrhea shorter in children. If you are being treated for iron deficiency, please make sure you understand why & that the cause has been addressed. Stay proactive & good luck.
