The authors examined the influence of beta-adrenergic stimulators Isoprenaline and Salbutamol as well as beta-adrenergic blockers Propranolol, Practolol and Pindolol on the proliferation of cells, forming plaques, 7S-immunoglobulins, hemagglutination titres and hemolytic activity of the complement. Primary stimulation with subsequent inhibition was induced by beta-adrenergic agonists and inhibition--by beta blocker Propronanol in a base of 10 mg/kg on the proliferation of cells, forming antibodies. The results were in correlation with hemagglutination titres. Salbutamol and beta-blockers inhibited immune hemolysis. The mechanisms of the observed effect are discussed in respect to the specific and nonspecific effect of the drugs used.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.
