Magnetic fields (MF) can influence biological systems in a wide range of animal species and humans. We report here on the influence of static MF, locally applied to the brain area, on immune system performances in the rat. In the first series of experiments two AKMA micromagnets (M) with the influx density of 600 Gauss were bilaterally implanted (with "N"(More)
Using isoelectric focusing (IEF) and immunoperoxidase staining of proteins transferred to nitrocellulose membranes, we have examined the IgG band pattern in tears and matched serum and CSF specimens of 28 patients with MS, 4 patients with optic neuritis (ON), 30 individuals with systemic, inflammatory, or other neurologic diseases, and 5 patients with(More)
BACKGROUND While HAART allows for the reconstitution of immune functions in most treated HIV patients, failure to achieve a significant increase in circulating CD4+ T cells despite undetectable viremia occurs. METHODS A retrospective study was conducted to evaluate the treatment outcome in a subgroup of 232 patients who after 3.1 years of treatment had(More)
There is a large body of evidence for the role of thymosin peptides in immunogenesis and immunity. In this paper we report on the influence of prothymosin alpha 1 (ProT-alpha 1), a hormone-like peptide derived from the calf thymus, on humoral and cellular immune reactions in the rat. Young adults received intraperitoneal injections of ProT-alpha 1 in the(More)
