Abstract

The influence of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) on specific immunity indexes has been studied in in vitro and animal experiments. GABA was shown to facilitate the appearance of Thy-I-antigen on the surface of mouse bone marrow cells and stimulate immune response of mice to thymus-dependent antigen (SRBC). However, GABA had no effect on the immune responsiveness to thymus-independent Vi-antigens in these animals.

Avian Influenza: Innate Immune Adjuvant (ASM)

Adjuvants systems that are added to vaccines against avian influenza have be explored to enhance the innate immune system response against the virus. Here is the latest research on avian influenza and the innate immune adjuvant.
