Overview

Transfer Factor: Basic Properties and Clinical Applications by Michael S. Ascher

Transfer Factor: Basic Properties and Clinical Applications covers papers about transfer factor.
The book presents papers on the in vitro studies of transfer factor; the characterization of transfer factor; and the animal models of transfer factor. The text also includes articles on the use of transfer factor in infectious and neoplastic diseases and transfer factor therapy.
Examples of papers on transfer factor therapy include the role of transfer factor in the treatment of lymphoma cutis in Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome, transfer factor immunotherapy of rheumatoid arthritis, and transfer factor therapy in a patient with an isolated T-cell deficiency. Immunologists, pathologists, oncologists, microbiologists and people involved in the study of infectious diseases will find the book invaluable.
