Oral administration of high molecular mass poly-gamma-glutamate induces NK cell-mediated antitumor immunity.

We analyzed the in vivo tumor regression activity of high molecular mass poly-gamma-glutamate (gamma-PGA) from Bacillus subtilis sups. chungkookjang. C57BL/6 mice were orally administered 10-, 100-, or 2000-kDa gamma-PGA or beta-glucan (positive control), and antitumor immunity was examined. Our results revealed higher levels of NK cell-mediated… CONTINUE READING
