Abstract

These results suggest that the immunopotentiator-induced viral inhibitors are interferon. Both Mycobacterium bovis BCG and Corynebacterium parvum, which are prescribed for the immunotherapy of cancer patients, are known to induce interferon. Conversely, interferon preparations and many known interferon inducers have also been shown to modulate various immunological reactions in tumor-bearing individuals. Therefore, the observation described here may help to elucidate the various biological activities such as antitumor, antiviral, and immunomodulating effects which result from the administration of immunopotentiating agents.
