Immunotropic activity of soapy amphiphilic high-polymer rna from baker’s yeast

Author Affiliations


The immunotropic activity of the amphiphilic high-polymer RNA isolated from baker’s yeast with oleic acid has been studied. It was discovered that the drug dose-dependently increases the mass of lymphoid organs (thymus and spleen) in mice, as well increases the average number of cells in these organs. The drug induces leukocyte reaction, dose-dependently stimulates the primary (IgM) and secondary (IgG) antibody response. However, it has an immunosuppressive effect on the expression of cell-mediated immune response (dose-dependent suppression of the effector phase of delayed-type hypersensitivity reactions and pronounced suppression phase of sensitization in the high dose).

Key words
