Abstract

To evaluate the effects of thymomodulin (TMD), a thymic biological response modifier derived from calf thymus, on the release of various cytokines involved in the lung immune reactions, human alveolar macrophages (AM) and peripheral blood lymphocytes (PBL) were cultured either alone or in co-cultures. In co-cultures of AM with PBL, TMD did not induce any change in γ-interferon (γ-IFN) and interleukin-1 (IL-1) secretion, while it was able to increase the level, of tumour necrosis factor (TNF)(TMD 100 μg·m-1, p-1 p-1 increased the amounts of GM-CSF (p
