Harris County is accepting proposals from qualified vendors to furnish, deliver FOB inside, and install a Mycobacterium Tuberculosis (TB) Interferon Gamma
Release Assays (IGRA) System to include analyzer(s), reagents, consumables, supplies and service, on a cost per reportable test basis, for Harris Health System for a period of one year, beginning on or about May 1, 2015 and ending twelve months thereafter or until all goods and/or services ordered prior to the expiration date have been satisfactorily delivered and accepted or performed satisfactorily for the using department.
is a protein secreted by lymphocytes that is used to fight the bacteria in white blood cells that cause tuberculosis.
More recently, Gottlober et al used low-dose interferon gamma
at 100 [micro]g three times per week subcutaneously for 6 months and then once weekly for 6 months as a treatment for RIF.
There is sound scientific evidence to support the use of Actimmune in asthma based on clear evidence that patients with asthma have impaired levels of Interferon gamma
that relate to specific imbalances of the immune system," said Prof.
Findings showed that both concentrations of fluoxetine significantly lowered production of interferon gamma
(IFN-[gamma]), while imipramine and venlafaxine had no effect.
Actimmune(R) is a synthesized version of interferon gamma
, a naturally occurring protein believed to stimulate the immune system.
Corradin and his colleagues also tested eight of the volunteers for interferon gamma
, a protein made by T cells that orchestrates immune responses.
Joseph Cummins, president and CEO of Amarillo, are co-inventors of a United States patent application entitled, "Low Dose Interferon Gamma
Compositions and Their Use for Treatment of Interferon-Sensitive Diseases.
The expression of one such immune trigger, interferon gamma
, is increased by as much as 20 times, acting as an effective antiviral agent, but without the significant negative clinical side effects of other interferon-based therapies.
is a naturally occurring protein that stimulates the immune system.
Giving mice interferon gamma
rather than IL-12 proved less effective, apparently because IL-12 triggers a continuous supply of the interferon.
which is providing the interferon gamma
protein that is being used in the tests.
