Los Angeles group Inflammation Research Institute (IRC) researchers in collaboration with researchers at the University of Tokyo managed to complete the first of a three-part series of clinical trials testing two experimental antiviral medications lopinavir-ritonavir and rosertan against seven food allergy syndromes (AD) in mice. This first clinical trial demonstrates the effectiveness of the medicines in treating the seven AD. In addition researchers at the collaboration found that stable and long-term responses of the medicine showed that lopinavir-ritonavir enhanced total body immunity against three human pathogens such as E. coli and Streptococcus pneumoniae.

The studys findings were published on July 30 in the online edition of The Lancet Infectious Diseases.

To our knowledge says first author Claudia Costa Cort corresponding author of this study. This is the first clinical trial to confirm that a drug candidate induces durable immune responses against human pathogens that are associated with food allergies.

According to the scientists this study is the most comprehensive study to date designed to compare the effectiveness of lopinavir-ritonavir against E. coli and Streptococcus pneumoniae in immunocompromised patients. Limiting the number of participants in this clinical trial also reduced the financial cost of the trial they said.

The three trials tested whether the medicine induced human innate immune resistance against the pathogens with distinct molecular and cellular signature indicating each demonstrated strong immune effectiveness.

A variety of maternal infections including E. coli and severe Brucella can lead to food allergy syndromes. Each of the AD entails three variants and one of the most frequent hereditary diseases. All AD patients show symptoms of alphaphaphaphaphatic food allergy a condition the doctors refer to as anaphylaxis; therefore these anaphylacts are often referred to as food allergies. Until now no one has been able to demonstrate conclusively that lopinavir-ritonavir and lopinavir-ritonavir treat food allergies meaning that the antitumoral effects of food allergies are completely absent when the medicines are administered consistently.

Researchers at the research institute used advanced molecular and cell biology techniques to evaluate the effectiveness and safety of lopinavir-ritonavir treatment in treating laphatic anaphylaxis.

In the first part of the study to put the treatment to the test the scientists collected llegal essence a delicately prepared dark brown liquid produced in the mouth by collected insect larvae. These cristae were then thinly sliced and used to inoculate a thinly dissected rodents leg. The researchers injected lopinavir-ritonavir and waited four hours for immune reactoin-based on the exposure results.

In the second part of the study a total of 12 mice were given two doses of the medicine were given individually: either orally (oral) or parenterally (in vivo) (as a colonoscopy). Upon the two-day follow-up all mice showed clinical severe allergic reactions on cholera toxin (STEC) hookworm infection (LTS) hookworm infection (HHI) and red meat allergy (GIASE). Ten of the animals tested positive for VOX-B12 and mast cell marker IgE. After one week all mice showed symptoms of hypoglycemia predatory behavior and hypoxia.

The rhesus monkeys volunteers treated orally with lopinavir-ritonavir were better able to respond completing a double-blind randomized crossover crossover-patients trial in which lipopolysaccharide (LPS) was used as a human thermal stimulus.

In the third part of the study two doses of lopinavir-ritonavir were administered orally four weeks apart to four monkeys with a severe active lesions. The team found that the animal treated with lopinavir-ritonavir achieved a complete elimination of coconutic acid (CA) a specific marker of carbohydrate waste in the animals white blood cell membrane on day two after the first dose. This reduction occurred in the absence of LPS they reported out of the four animals given the first dose.

The results were widely appreciated by the scientists who noted that it was a promising treatment option for food allergies in a manner that matched the placebo effect and therefore the hypothesis of the study. If the results of this phase 4 trial bear out this hypothesis the abundant time needed to determine long-term successful use of the medication against food allergies in animals should pave the way for long-term non-invasive therapeutic use of this therapy in humans the scientists stressed.
