Interleukin-2 (IL-2) and interferon-gamma (IFN-gamma) have recently been added to the arsenal of synthetic biological response modifiers with important immunomodulatory activities. In this paper we have assessed the effects of acetylsalicylic acid (aspirin), thymosin alpha and thymosin fraction 5 (TF5), a partially purified calf thymic preparation, on production of IFN-gamma in vitro. Stimulation by oral aspirin of IL-2 and IFN-gamma production by peripheral blood lymphocytes (PBLs) was also… CONTINUE READING
