Colostrum is the richest natural source of zoonutrients. Proline Rich Polypeptides (PRP) are active immune modulating zoonutrient peptides found in all mammalian colostrum. In particular PRP are thought to modulate thymus function, specifically the T helper 1 / T helper 2 (Th1 / Th2) balance. Th1, modulating cellular immunity, and Th2, modulating humeral immunity, are classified on the basis of the cytokines they produce. To demonstrate the efficacy of PRP in down regulating Th2 dominance an… Expand

Colostrinine: a proline-rich polypeptide from ovine colostrum is a modest cytokine inducer in human leukocytes.
TLDR
Observations suggest that ovine PRP is active in humans and may have therapeutic value as an immunostimulant and/or neurotropic cytokine. Expand
Colostrinin ® : a Proline-Rich Polypeptide ( PRP ) Complex Isolated from Ovine Colostrum for Treatment of Alzheimer ’ s Disease . A Double-Blind , Placebo-Controlled Study
A proline-rich polypeptide (PRP) complex, subsequently called Colostrinin , was isolated from ovine c olostrum. The complex showed immunomodulatory properties in mice, rats, and chickens, indu cingExpand
Immunologically active nonapeptide fragment of a proline-rich polypeptide from ovine colostrum: amino acid sequence and immunoregulatory properties.
TLDR
The amino acid sequence of the nonapeptide indicated that PRP-3b is different from other known immunomodulators, and was compared with the NH2- nor the COOH-terminal fragment of PRP. Expand
Proline-rich polypeptide from ovine colostrum: its effect on skin permeability and on the immune response.
TLDR
Studying the effect of a proline-rich polypeptide from ovine colostrum on the humoral immune response in mice against sheep red blood cells and the permeability of skin vessels in guinea-pigs suggest that prostaglandins are involved in the activity of the polypePTide. Expand
Towards an understanding of biological role of colostrinin peptides
TLDR
It is hoped that the beneficial use of colostrinin in Alzheimer’s Disease (AD), recently reported elsewhere, will revive interest in its clinical application for treatment and/or prophylaxis of many age-related disorders. Expand
Effects of dexamethasone on lymphoid tissue in the gut and thymus of neonatal calves fed with colostrum or milk replacer.
TLDR
Testing whether dexamethasone (DEXA) administration influences the proliferation, apoptosis, and number of B- and T-lymphocytes in Peyer's patches and thymus in calves fed colostrum or a milk-derived formula found it to reduce cell proliferation rates and enhance apoptotic rates in follicles of PP.

Effect of proline-rich polypeptide on donor cells in graft-versus-host reaction.
TLDR
The effect of a proline-rich polypeptide (PRP) isolated from early sheep colostrum on the graft-versus-host (GvH) reaction was studied and some of the cortisone-resistant thymocytes become cortis one-sensitive when treated with PRP and the ability to induce the GvH reaction was reduced. Expand
Chemical and physical characterization of a proline-rich polypeptide from sheep colostrum.
TLDR
The lack of effect of the polypeptide on proteolytic enzymes ruled out the possibility that it is an inhibitor of proteinases, and the proline-rich polyPEptide is not an amphipathic protein. Expand

TLDR
Although there are impressive amounts of data in favor of the missing immune deviation, experimental evidence supporting the role of reduced immune suppression in explaining the increased prevalence of allergy is currently weak or even contradictory. Expand
