[The effect of Kaqun-water on the immune parameters of healthy volunteers].

Biró A, et al. Orv Hetil. 2014.

Abstract

INTRODUCTION: Kaqun-water contains a high amount of stable oxygen, which absorbed through the skin and intestinal tract, increases tissue oxygenation.

AIM: The aim of the authors was to evaluate the effect of 21 days of Kaqun-water treatment on the immune parameters of healthy volunteers.

METHOD: Subpopulations of lymphocytes were determined by immune phenotyping, and CD25 and CD71 activation antigens were used to assess lymphocyte activation. Production of reactive oxygen intermediates was measured to determine the killing capacity of neutrophil granulocytes. Data was analysed with repeated measures ANOVA.

RESULTS: The reactive oxygen intermediate production of neutrophils increased significantly in stimulated samples during three weeks of Kaqun-water treatment. The percent of activated, CD25 positive T and helper T cells, and the ratio of NK cells increased.

CONCLUSIONS: The increase in oxygen concentration caused by Kaqun-water treatment affects several immune functions: the killing potential of neurophil granulocytes is enhanced, the activation of lymphocytes shows an increased activity of immune function, and the elevated ratio of NK cells may help combat virally infected and tumorous cells.
