The influence of glutaurine on the spleen of carrageenan-treated mice was investigated. The spleen cells derived from carrageenan-treated mice were also studied with respect to mitogen-stimulated and nonstimulated DNA synthesis. 1. 1. The optimal condition of carrageenan treatment was 60 mg/kg body wt ip for 4 days. 2. 2. The increase of the spleen weight per body wt ratio (48%) caused by carrageenan was found to be significant (P < 0.01), and could not be influenced by adding glutaurine… Expand

Effect of treatment with glutaurine on human antibody-dependent cell-mediated cytotoxicity (ADCC).
TLDR
The effects of in vitro and in vivo treatment with glutaurine on human antibody-dependent cell-mediated cytotoxicity (ADCC) were studied in 15 tumor patients with healthy subjects in a xenogeneic test system using chicken erythrocytes as target cells. Expand
Effect of glutaurine and its derivatives and their combinations with radiation protective substances upon irradiated mice.
TLDR
The results suggest that glutaurine possesses a radiation protective effect in animals irradiated with LD50/30 of roentgen rays and 60Co gamma rays and has a favourable effect also when administered after irradiation. Expand
Glutaurine enhances the depressed NK cell activity of tumor patients.
TLDR
It is suggested that glutaurine increases the originally low spontaneous killer activity of tumor patients' lymphocytes through an indirect regulatory mechanism. Expand
Effect of litoralon, taurine and other taurine derivatives on the heart muscle cell membrane of the locusta migratoria (migratoriodes R.F.)
TLDR
The arrhythmic type of potential generation in the locust heart became regular under the influence of litoralon, while taurine and its other derivatives, failed to restore the regular firing of heart muscle. Expand

Suppression of in vitro antigen-induced lymphocyte transformation by carrageenan, a macrophage-toxic agent.
TLDR
Findings suggest that carrageenan acts at an early stage of macrophage-antigen processing and are consistent with previous reports of inhibition of antigen-induced lymphocyte transformation using anti-macrophage serum and provide further evidence that phytohemagglutinin-inducedymphocyte transformation is not mediated by macrophages. Expand
Effects of carrageenan on immune responses. Studies on the macrophage dependency of various antigens after treatment with carrageenan.
TLDR
The results strongly suggest that macrophages are involved in antibody responses to T cell-dependent antigens but not in those to Tcell-independent antIGens, and carrageenan treatment seems to be a very useful method to determine whether immune response to various antigen are macrophage dependent or not. Expand
Effect of carrageenan on immune responses. II. A possible regulatory role of macrophages in the immune responses of low-responder mice.
TLDR
Although C57BL/6 mice showed little response to low dose antigenic stimulation with dinitrophenylated bovine γ-globulin (DNP-BGG), this immune response was enhanced markedly by carrageenan treatment, and the responder status of these animals seems to depend mainly on macrophages rather than on thymus- derived cell (T cell) or bone marrow-derived cell (B cell) function.

IMMUNOSUPPRESSIVE ACTIVITY OF CARRAGEENAN FOR CELL‐MEDIATED RESPONSES IN THE MOUSE
TLDR
It is concluded that, compared with its effect on antibody formation, carrageenan is a very poor inhibitor of cell-mediated responses, and its immunosuppressive properties are investigated. Expand
Promotion of incidence of adenovirus type 12 transplantable tumors by carrageenan, a specific antimacrophage agent.
TLDR
Carrageenan was most effective if given 1 day before tumor inoculation; the effectiveness decreased with increasing intervals before or after tumor cell injection, lending further support to the importance of macrophages in tumor immunity. Expand
"B-cell" mitogenicity of carragheenan in mouse.
TLDR
It is concluded that carragheenan selectively activates mouse “B” cells from each strain tested, with the exception of C3H/He mice, probably acts on a subpopulation of B cells different from the populations stimulated by dextran sulfate and LPS. Expand
ACCELERATED REJECTION OF SKIN HOMOGRAFTS BY VITAMIN A ACID
TLDR
It is unlikely that a reinforcement of the hosts' immune response is responsible for the accelerated homograft rejection, but as it occurs at dosages which do not interfere with the healing process of grafts, vitamin A acid is thought to increase the susceptibility of skin transplants to the immunological rejection. Expand
Vitamin A-induced nonspecific resistance to infection.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that vitamin A induces nonspecific resistance to infection in mice and did not affect in vitro growth of the three challenge organisms. Expand
Antipyretic and antiviral action of vitamin A in Moloney sarcoma virus- and poxvirus-inoculated mice.
TLDR
Six week-old male CBA/J mice fed a commercial powdered laboratory chow or the same chow supplemented with vitamin A palmitate were inoculated with either the Moloney strain of murine sarcoma virus (M-MuSV) or poxvirus, and the appearance of pox lesions was delayed, their numbers reduced, and their disappearance hastened.

Vitamin A: adjuvant and steroid antagonist in the immune response.
TLDR
The immunosuppressive effect of hydrocortisone on the response to sheep red blood cells can be prevented by simultaneous administration of vitamin A and dinitrophenylated ovalbumin. Expand
