Inhibition of expression of delayed-type hypersensitivity by recipients of transfer factor (TF) by administration of LLYAQDLEDN.

Groups of mice were given either ferritin-specific or ovalbumin-specific transfer factors (approximately 0.1 pMol) of murine origin. Other mice received the same doses of the transfer factors and 0.1 µM of LLYAQDLEDN. Footpad testing was done after 24 hr and the responses were read 18 hr later. The responses to the antigens by the transfer factor recipients were significantly greater than the responses to HBSS (p < 0.001 in both studies). Note that concomitant administration of LLYAQDLEDN essentially ablated expression of delayed-type hypersensitivity.
