The Science Behind The Product

Scientific studies performed on in vitro cells, animals, and humans have all shown Thymic Protein A to provide significant benefits in supporting and strengthening the immune system by increasing white blood cell counts, increasing T-cell (helper cell) levels, and inducing apoptosis (cell death) in aberrant cells.

Below is a sample collection of research papers to demonstrate the effectiveness of Thymic Protein A to strengthen the immune system response in these areas.

Increasing White Blood Cell Counts


Statistically Significant Increases (mean = <0.01)


- Journal of Nutritional and Environmental Medicine

A New Biologically Active Thymic Protein A to Stimulate Cell–Mediated Immunity


- Townsend Letter for Doctors & Patients by Dr. James Lapcovic


“This protein is scientifically proven to be the thymus protein which programs the T-4 lymphocyte (T-4 helper cell), a function many consider the most important aspect of immunity; it is one of the true keys to longevity.”

Anti-Aging Breakthrough: Thymic Protein A


- Total Health by Dr. Terry Beardsley


“A daily dose of a mere 4 micrograms of this material can make a major difference in longevity by strengthening the immune system through its T-cell “programming” role. The more T-cells that are properly functioning, the more immune response may be mounted against antigens which are constantly entering the body.”

Induction of Apoptosis by Immune Enhancing Agent In Treatment of Cancer and Viral Infection


- Graphs of studies by the National Institutes of Health and University of California at San Diego (UCSD)


1. National Institutes of Health – Human
“These studies show that contrary to the expectation of enhanced HIV expression as is observed with other immune modulators, Thymic Protein A actually suppressed HIV production as measured by P24 antigen.”

2. UCSD – Lymphoma Induced Cell Death
“This study demonstrates that mouse lymphoma cells undergo apoptosis (cell suicide) in the presence of Thymic Protein A.”

Pilot Study of the Effects of Thymic Protein on Elevated Epstein-Barr Virus Titers


- Townsend Letter for Doctor & Patients by Bio Communications Research Institute(UCSD)


“Six patients with chronically elevated Epstein-Barr virus early antigen antibody titers were treated for 60 days with purified Thymic Protein A. There was statistically significant reduction of antibody titers. The Thymic Protein A was well tolerated and increased energy was reported by most of the participants.”

The FIV Connection – Why Cats May be the Purr-fect Model for HIV Infection


- Searchlight by Peter Hale


“As a retrovirus and lentivirus (member of the AIDS virus family), many biochemical, clinical and immunological events that occur during FIV infection mimic HIV infection. The most compelling evidence of the efficacy of Epithyme-injectable formulation of Thymic Protein A is the fact that we have seen cats survive for five years with full blown FIV disease with both increases in CD4 counts and clinical improvements in symptomology.”

The discovery of Thymic Protein A and its function was mainly accomplished by Dr. Terry Beardsley, an immunologist with a Ph.D. in Experimental Biology from Baylor College of Medicine, Texas. He has spent most of his career researching the thymus gland, and is considered one of the experts on this subject. He is the first person to isolate and purify an intact thymic protein and make it available for consumer use.

Dr. Beardsley is committed to maintaining the high scientific standards which were established in the research and manufacture of this product over the past decade. Additional studies already in progress will expand the range of application of this scientifically proven product.
