The influence of Broncho-Vaxom (BV) on different immune parameters was investigated in vitro on human peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC). It was found that BV enhances the natural killer (NK) activity of PBMC and increases their spontaneous and phytohemagglutin (PHA)-induced production of tumor-necrosis factor—α and interleukin-2 as well as the PHA-stimulated production of interferon-γ. These immunostimulating actions of BV on NK activity and cytokine production can contribute to the… CONTINUE READING
