How Aimspro works.
"Aimspro has been characterised biochemically and its mode of action has been determined.
it is composed of a set of peptide that act to stimulate the releases and regulation of a molecular cascade that modulates the Hypothalamo-Pituitary-Adrenal (HPA) axis.
In addition, Aimspro has powerful anti-inflammatory properties as it contains cytokines that induce a predominantly TH-2 anti-inflammatory profile in the patient
It has become apparent that some of the peptide in Aimspro are regulated and bound by specific carrier molecules that may regulate the action and release of their ligand and are probably necessary for the appropriate regulation and pharmacokinetics of the molecular machinery.
The carries molecules also function as a slow release mechanism, releasing bioactive components over several days."
It is a highly specific product obtained by vaccinating a specially selected herd of goats and then preparing the active component.
This a powerful anti inflammatory agent which is associated with the induction of tissue repair factors some of which are known to enhance nerve conduction.
Like a few dramatic developments in the pharmaceutical world the creation of Aimspro was an offshoot of a line of research looking for a treatment / cure for a specific human affliction.
Since World War 2 people have been increasingly protected against many diseases by means of inoculations that involve the use of vaccines.
Some that spring to mind include polio (Salk), hepatitis, meningitis, cervical cancer, smallpox, tetanus, rabies, influenza and many others.
If one takes polio as an example, the Salk vaccine is produced by injecting dead polio viruses into fertilized hen's eggs and then extracting the created antibodies produced by the embryo to counter this 'invasion'.
The antibodies are then stored as a serum in vials before injection into humans.
In the case of Aimspro, a solution containing totally dead HIV viruses is injected into goats (the best mammal for this job) that have to be disease-free individuals (free of BSE, scrapie, etc.).
The HIV viruses are killed by two different methods and the solution is tested to make sure no live virus is present.
This disease-free requirement ensures no transmission of any disease from goat to human, only antibodies.
The goats are not harmed in any way; they merely provide small regular amounts of blood then go back to pasture.
The antibodies are officially described as "polyclonal antibodies". They are not chemical drugs; they are classified as "biopharmaceuticals".
Medical authorities have stated that antibiotics (derived from fungi) are near to the end of their useful lives due to their misuse and resistance build-up within bacteria. Although Aimspro does not work on bacteria there are many conditions that are caused by malfunctioning auto-immune systems.
It is thought that these polyclonal antibodies, which have anti-inflammatory properties in such diseases, will become a major force as antibiotics become useless in the not-too-distant-future.
Side effects may occur:
Irritation at injection site.
There are very important mandatory import formalities for biological products throughout the world, though the fact that a hyper immune serum is derived from a low risk country helps facilitate the necessary application process.
