A large amount of evidence indicates that aging is associated with immune system dysfunction. Brewer's yeast, one of the most notable species of yeast in health and wellness, has been shown to stimulate the immune system and improve human life span. In the present study, brewer's yeast (5, 25 or 125 μg/mouse) was orally supplemented to aged mice each other day for 4 weeks. Total number of leukocytes from peripheral blood (PBl), thymus (Thy), spleen (Sp), and peritoneal exudate cells (PEC) were…

The study investigated the impact of feeding OmniGen-AF® (OG; Phibro Animal Health, Quincy, IL) from dry-off to week 4 of lactation at two doses on production performance and metabolic adaptation of



In vitro human lymphocyte proliferative responses to a glycoprotein of the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae.

Analysis of the cellular immune response to Saccharomyces cerevisiae in normal individuals provides evidence for possible antigen-specific, cellular, immune sensitization of normal individuals to a ubiquitous dietary component.

Immunomodulating effect of Inter Yeast S on the non-specific and specific cellular and humoral immunity in lambs.

Analysis of cellular immunity indicators revealed significantly higher levels of RBA and PKA, and higher proliferative response of blood lymphocytes (MTT) after stimulation with LPS and ConA in the experimental group, compared with those observed in the control group.

The immune response of female BALB/c mice of different ages and identified significant age-related alterations suggest that there are significant changes in the organization of the immune system throughout life.

Effects of yeast cell walls on performance and immune responses of cyclosporine A-treated, immunosuppressed broiler chickens.

Results indicate that YCW supplementation has beneficial effects in attenuating the immunosuppressive effects of CSA challenge, therefore improving growth performance of broiler chickens.

Recovery of age-dependent immunological deterioration in old mice by thyroxine treatment.

It is postulates that thyroid hormones may be involved in the observed decrease in the immune responsiveness during ageing, and that T(4) treatment to aged mice is able to restore the age-related decline of the immune efficiency.

The influence of beta-glucan on immune responses in broiler chicks.

The findings of these studies imply that beta-glucan can be used as a possible immunomodulator in food animals such as the chicken because it improves several baseline immune responses in the chicken.

Immune-related alterations in aged gut-associated lymphoid tissues in mice

Despite the defects in the quantity and distribution of lymphocytes in aged PP and MLN, the finding of little change in the total amount of secreted IgA in aged intestine suggests that gut IgA-mediated luminal immune responses could remain nearly unaltered with senescence.

β-Glucan from Saccharomyces cerevisiae Induces IFN-γ Production In Vivo in BALB/c Mice.

The experiments have shown that β-glucan preparations enhance IFN-γ production in BALB/c mice and can be potentially used for immune system stimulation in mammals and may be used to develop soluble β- glucan nutritional supplements.

Age-associated aberrations in mouse cellular and humoral immune responses

A decline in cell-mediated immune response, chronic inflammation and aggravation of humoral immunity was evident which conclusively suggests a skewed Th2 pathway during aging.

Effects of β-glucan extracted from Saccharomyces cerevisiae on humoral and cellular immunity in weaned piglets

It is demonstrated that β-glucan can improve the humoral immunity of pigs and modulate cellular immunity of Piglets by mitigating the elevation of pro-inflammatory cytokines and enhancing the increase of anti- inflammatory cytokines after an immunological challenge.
