In a clinical study, we observed a linear relationship between Bria-IMT™ exposure and the rising levels of CD40L (CD40 ligand) in a subject with a strong anti-tumor effect. CD40L is a protein that is expressed on components of the immune system including activated T cells, B cells, platelets, monocytic cells, natural killer (NK) cells, mast cells, and basophils. CD40L is known as one of the strongest stimulants of the immune system resulting in dendritic cell maturation, and rising serum levels of CD4+, CD8+, and NK cells, ., immune cells known for their anti-tumor activities. Additionally, the CD40/CD40L pathway is critical for the development of protective anti-tumor activity by providing a key initial step in the development of humoral (B cell/antibody-mediated) immunity. However, CD40L has also shown immune-suppressive activity in some tumor models. By higher expression of CD40/CD40L levels, tumors have been able to avoid both T cell and antigen-presenting cell (APC) compartments, and to establish an immunosuppressive tumor microenvironment.
Salicylates are derivatives of salicylic acid that occur naturally in plants and serve as a natural immune hormone and preservative , protecting the plants against diseases , insects , fungi , and harmful bacteria . [ citation needed ] Salicylates can also be found in many medications , perfumes and preservatives. [ citation needed ] Both natural and synthetic salicylates can cause health problems in anyone when consumed in large doses, [ citation needed ] but for those who exhibit salicylate sensitivity (also known as salicylate intolerance ), even small doses of salicylate can cause adverse reactions.
