Title: MATERNAL IMMUNE SECRETIONS AND THEIR USE IN THE TREATMENT AND/OR PROPHYLAXIS OF CONDITIONS OF THE HUMAN BODY
Abstract:
Medicaments formed from maternal immune secretion having biological activity characteristic of human saliva and other mucosal secretion and which is tolerated by humans can be used for the treatment and/or prophylaxis of conditions of the human body such as the buccal cavity characterised by a loss of normal mucosal or the normal biological properties thereof. The secretions are suitably egg fluid or milk from a domestic animal or replicas thereof. These secretions can be enriched with the native immunoglobulin found therein so that they have a potency which approximates that of hyperimmunised immunoglobulin. The medicaments have particular application in the treatment and/or prophylaxis of oral infection, dental caries, conditions of the buccal cavity characterised by inflammation, xerostomia and halitosis.
