The effect of the immunosuppressive fraction of boar seminal vesicle fluid (ISF) was tested on the manifestation of adjuvant arthritis (AA) in rats. The inhibitory effect of ISF on. been shown to exert immunosuppressive effects. It has been shown that the major protein secreted from rat seminal vesicle has non-species specific immunosuppressive and anti-inflammatory propert 16). However, the effects of human Sg on human lymphocyte functions have not been fully elucidated. In this study we have studied whether Sg has.

Similarly, bovine seminal ribonuclease presents immunosuppression activity by interfering strongly with the expression of the interleukin‐2 receptor on T cells, and it exerts action through its ability to catalyze the cleavage of RNA (Tamburrini et al, ).

It was established that this tissue contained active phosphorylcholine-cytidyl and phos-phorylcholine-glyceryl transferases, which catalyze the synthesis . The usefulness of plasma drug concentration data is based on the concept that pharmacologic response is closely related to drug concentration at the site of action. For certain drugs, studies in patients have provided infor-mation on the plasma concentration range that is safe and effective in treating specific diseases—the therapeu-. Seminal plasma, and not epididymal spermatozoa, have an inhibitory effect on the direct hemolytic plague forming cell response. This was mediated by a direct inhibitory effect on the B cell and not through the generation of suppressor T cells as demonstrated by responses to T-independent and Cited by:

Induction (started immediately post-transplant, when the risk of rejection is highest) and done with anti-T-lymphocyte–depleting or non-depleting antibodies.
