Modulation of immune response in aged humans through different administration modes of thymopentin.

Abstract

Thymopentin, a synthetic pentapeptide corresponding to the active site of thymopoietin, has been shown to restore antibody production in old mice. A decrease in immune response can also be observed in elderly humans, which is mainly caused by defective T cell function. The present study shows that the immunomodulating properties of thymopentin involve both… (More)
