[Stimulation of the immunological reactivity of cancer patients by Eleutherococcus extract].

[Article in Russian]


In vitro treatment of lymphocytes with eleutherococcal preparation produced an immune-boosting effect both in cancer patients and healthy controls. The results of a randomized study pointed to eleutherococcus' capability of stimulating general non-specific resistance and immunologic vigor in the course of cytostatic and radiation treatment for breast cancer. Since eleutherococcus is free of toxicity and allergenicity in prolonged treatment, it is indicated in patients receiving intensive antitumor therapy. Drug concentration should be tailored individually.
