Abstract

The Authors wish to examine the protective effects which a period of pre-treatment with thymostimulin, would have on endotoxin hepatitis, induced in thymectomized and non-thymectomized animals. The test showed that the histological picture and the degree of endotoxinemia, measured with the Lymulus test, benefited from treatment with a thymic extract. This therapy was effect (and was statistically significant) in obtaining an immunorestoring effect (in the thymectomized mouse) and in inducing an immunostimulating effect (in the normal mouse).
