About

Clinical-proof-of concept study, comparing the acute immune impacts of of 2 doses of a novel blend of supplements to a placebo. This study involves twenty-four participants, composed of healthy adults, who will be taking a placebo and 2 different doses of the blend at different times. Testing for immune status and cytokine levels will be conducted to determine the acute impact of the blend on immune function as compared to the placebo.

Full description

Clinical-proof-of-concept study comparing the acute immune effects of 2 doses of a nutraceutical blend, and a placebo. The nutraceutical blend is based on a transfer factor isolated from cow colostrum ultrafiltrate. 24 subjects will participate in a placebo-controlled, randomized, double-blinded, cross-over study design, wherein they will be taking placebo, dose 1, and dose 2, each separated by a 1-week washout period. Blood samples are taken 1 hour after participants arrive; the dose is then administered. Samples are taken 1 hour, 2 hours, and 24 hours following administration. At each blood sample collection, a spit sample will also be taken for salivary IgA testing. A series of immune panels will be used to determine the acute impacts on immune surveillance, immune cell activation status, immune cell priming, and cytokine profiles.
