Two new triterpenoid saponins 1 and 2 were isolated from the methanol extract of the roots of Acanthophyllum gypsophiloides Regel. These saponins have quillaic acid or gypsogenin moieties as an aglycon, and both bear similar sets of two oligosaccharide chains, which are 3-O-linked to the triterpenoid part trisaccharide(More)
Disorders seen in patients with Alzheimer's disease are also related to the pathology of immunity. In order to study it in a more detailed manner, some immunity parameters were examined in 30 patients with Alzheimer's disease, 15 patients with Huntington's chorea which may have similar mechanisms of immunologic defects, and 15 healthy donors. A study was(More)
An increase in the amount of direct and indirect plaque-forming cells in mixed cultures of lymph node cells from mice primed and challenged with sheep red blood cells with syngenic and allogenic bone marrow cells from intact donors was observed. The amount of plaque-forming cells in mixed cultures reached the maximum level in 9--11 hours of cultivation and(More)
A complex immunotherapy regimen containing myelopid in combination with chemotherapeutic drugs was prescribed for 30 patients aged from 17 to 54 years and suffering from destructive pulmonary tuberculosis. It was proved that a complex treatment favored the normalization of the main immunologic indices, thus greatly increasing the efficacy of pulmonary(More)
An active factor doubling the antibody synthesis in the culture of immune lymph node cells was isolated from the supernatant of the cultures of bone marrow cells from intact donors. Gel chromatography was used for this purpose. The stimulant of antibody producers (SAP) was eluated at the site of cytochrome C exit; the factor is heat-stable and has the mol(More)
Using double 3H-thymidine/14C-amino acid label, the influence of myelopeptides (MP) on chromosomal DNA and total protein (without histones) synthesis has been studied in vitro in mouse lymphoid organ cells. It has been shown that MP cause a decrease in DNA labelling and a parallel increase in protein labelling in bone marrow cells and have practically no(More)
