Why is it important?

Immunotherapy based on the use of pro-GSH molecules would permit LP-BM5 infection and probably all those viral infections characterized by GSH deficiency and aTh1/ Th2 imbalance to be more effectively combated.


The molecules proposed can act both as immunomodulators and antimicrobial. This means that they can combine host- and pathogen-directed treatments providing an innovative and efficient strategy to fight several pathogens.
