Beneficial effects of the thymic hormone preparation thymoxtimulin in patients with defects in cell‐mediated immunity and chronic purulent rhinosinusitis. A double‐blind cross‐over trial on
Twenty patients with chronic purulent rhinosinusitis were treated with TP‐1 (Serono; 1 mg/kg body weight), in a double‐blind cross‐over trial. TP‐1 was administered by daily i.m. injections for theExpand

The presence of immunosuppressive ‘p15E‐like’ factors in the serum and urine of patients suffering from malign and benign breast tumours
Certain types of tumours are capable of producing factors inhibiting mononuclear phagocyte chemotaxis which may contribute to defects in imtnunosurveillance. In head and neck cancer these factors areExpand

A monocyte chemotaxis inhibiting factor in serum of HIV infected men shares epitopes with the HIV transmembrane protein gp41.
This report describes that gp41, the transmembranous envelope protein of HIV, is able to inhibit monocyte chemotaxis (measured as FMLP-induced polarization). To study the presence of suchExpand

Defects in monocyte polarization and dendritic cell clustering in patients with Graves’ disease. A putative role for a non‐specific immunoregulatory factor related to retroviral p15E
A depressed chemotactic responsiveness of monocytes and a depressed cluster capability of dendritic cells have been found in diseases such as chronic purulent Infections of the respiratory tract andExpand

Thymostimulin enhancement of T‐cell infiltration into head and neck squamous cell carcinoma
Head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) produces immunosuppressive low‐molecular‐mass factors (LMMFs) responsible for defects in the cell‐mediated immune system. These defects include impairedExpand
