We report the effect of a bovine serum albumin (BSA) conjugate of a synthetic hexasaccharide (HS) related to the fragment of the capsular polysaccharide (PS) of Streptococcus pneumoniae type 14 on the stimulation of innate immune system and the subsequent development of a PS-specific antibody response. Glycoconjugate (GC) in the presence (GC + AL) or(More)
We studied the effects of immunization with a conjugate of carrier protein and hexasaccharide ligand related to a fragment of capsular of Str. pneumoniae serotype 14 polysaccharide chain on activation of innate and adaptive immunity. It was found that two-fold immunization with the glycoconjugate adsorbed on aluminum hydroxide significantly increased the(More)
The effect of sulfated polysaccharide fucoidan from the brown alga Laminaria japonica on morphological characteristics of mouse lymphoid organs, subpopulations of spleen mononuclear leukocytes, cytokine production and cytotoxic activity of splenocytes has been investigated. Fucoidan promoted activation and proliferation of lymphoid hematopoietic cells in(More)
AIM To determine level of Toll-like receptors (TLRs) expression in spleen and lymphatic nodes of mice after immunization by mucosal routes. MATERIALS AND METHODS Mice were immunized with polycomponent vaccine Immunovac either by mucosal or subcutaneous route. Expression of TLRs in spleen, respiratory tract-associated lymphatic nodes as well as in small(More)
The aim of this research was to study the morphological, functional and immunophenotypical characteristics of lymphokine-activated killer cells (LAKC) generated from the mononuclear cells (MNC) of healthy donors' peripheral blood at different time intervals after the cultivation with interleukin-2 (IL-2). LAKC had the appearance of large lymphoid cells of(More)
A reflex profile of children with Down Syndrome (n=48) has been created based on an Assessment of their reflex patterns. This profile and its analysis demonstrate that dysfunctional patterns intrude upon the neurodevelopment of children in this group significantly, and cause more delays in their neurosensorimotor integration, motor coordination, and other(More)
The generation of ripe dendrite cells (DC) of marrow origin was obtained with the use of the vaccine Immunovac-BN-4, an immunomodulator of microbial origin, as well as Klebsiella pneumoniae LPS and TNF-alpha, as ripening inducers. These inducers equally led to the ripening of DC. The generation of ripe DC was characterized by morphological, phenotypical and(More)
The article reports survey data on 23 patients with erythemas, including 19 patients with herpes-associated erythema multiforme (HAEM) and 4 patients with Darier's erythema annulare centrifugum (DEAC). Patients in the initial state (baseline) and after two weeks of therapy with proteflazid were characterized by measuring the levels of Toll-like receptor(More)
The effects of various sulfated polysaccharides of brown algae Fucus evanescens, Saccharina cichorioides and Saccharina japonica on the morphofunctional changes of dendritic cells have been investigated using flow cytometry and phase-contrast microscopy. The dendritic cells are characterized by larger sizes, vacuolated cytoplasm, eccentrically located(More)
The influence of the vaccine Immunovac-VP-4, prepared from the antigens of opportunistic microorganisms, on the proliferative and cytotoxic activity on peripheral blood mononuclears (PBMN) from healthy donors in vitro and on spleen cells of CBA mice in vivo during their incubation with Cisplatin was studied. VP-4 produced a dose-dependent, stimulating(More)
