Advances in Immunotherapy for Systemic Disorders
Abstract:The improved understanding of immunologic mechanisms has been accompanied by less dramatic developments in immunotherapy. Recent developments are reviewed in passive immunization, active immunization, immunologic reconstitution and immunopotentiators. The most important new agents include intravenous gammaglobulin, VIC, HBIG, inactivated hepatitis B vaccine and zinc. Promising agents include the use of E rosetting and soybean agglutinin prepared bone marrow, TP5, interferon, and a variety of immunopotentiators.
