When an agent of the disease enters the body, the immune system has two types of responses:

  1. The innate immune response

    The innate immune response is the body’s first line of defense to any disease agent. It is fast, not specific and reacts in much the same manner to all disease agents.

  2. The adaptive immune response

    Adaptive immunity targets specific disease agents, e.g. by using specific antibodies developed through prior exposure or vaccination.

You may read more about immunity and different responses at the National Institutes of Health's site.

POLYPRENYL IMMUNOSTIMULANT TRIGGERS AN INNATE IMMUNE RESPONSE which is the non-immunized body’s only defense:

Upon viral infection and recognition by macrophages, cells are activated to produce cytokines which include:

  • Interferon
  • Interleukins
  • Chemokines

These cytokines induce the host immune response and activate the Th-1 subset of T-helper cells.

Viruses have evolved efficient mechanisms to escape eradication by the host immunity by either trying to become “invisible” to the immune system or by destroying it by:

  • Impairing of the cellular immune response
  • Interfering with immune effector functions
  • Controlling of biosynthesis of systems for own evasion, and by other means

Polyprenyl Immunostimulant overrides viral evasion and upregulates cellular immunity as seen by biosynthesis of Th1 cytokines. The upregulation protects the organism from detrimental results of viral attack.
