Thymosin Alpha-1 is a protein which consists of 28 amino acids. Thymosin Alpha-1 is believed to be a significant component of Thymosin Fraction 5 responsible for the activity of that preparation in repairing immune function. It has been found to improve cell-mediated immunity in humans. Thymosin Alpha-1 plays a vital role in the control of immunity, tolerance, and inflammation. It manages immune response via an initial action on the cells of the innate immune system and thus acts as an endogenous regulator of both inflammatory and adaptive immune responses. Thymosin alpha-1’s immunomodulatory activities are centered primarily on the augmentation of T-cell function.

Thymosin Alpha-1 has been used to treat diseases:

  • Immune Dysfunction
  • Hepatitis B virus (HBV)
  • Hepatitis C virus (HCV)
  • Certain types of cancers
  • Arthritis
  • Rheumatoid arthritis (RA)
  • Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE)
